Morebattle Hurdle | Kelso | February 2021
Date:
Sat 13th February 2021
Location:
Kelso Racecourse

Run midweek in February, Kelso Racecourse’s Morebattle Hurdle is a two-and-a-quarter-mile affair, and as a Class 2 race worth around £30,000 it often attracts some pretty smart types.

Upon its inauguration, the Morebattle, named for the village situation just nine miles from the track, was a handicap race but was altered to become a conditions event in 1984 and has been staged that way ever since.

Past winners of the race include four-time scorer Jinxy Jack and Marello, while top-class southern-based trainer Nicky Henderson has landed the event three times in recent years with the excellent Simonsig and Top Notch as well as with We Have A Dream.

Elsewhere on the card, the Malcolm Jefferson Memorial Chase attracts more top runners, with the schedule made up by a good Handicap Hurdle, a Novices’ Hurdle, a Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase, a Hunters’ Chase, and a Bumper which closes the day.
