ast weekend’s torrid weather has given us a blockbuster bonus card at Newbury with Betfair Super Saturday turning into Super Sunday.
The re-arranged meeting is headlined by the Betfair Hurdle, the most lucrative handicap hurdle race in the UK.
And if that isn’t enough to whet the appetite, there’s also back-to-bakc Grade 2 action in the Denman Chase and the Gamer Spirit Chase, both of which could have major clues for the Cheltenham Festival, which is now less than a month away.
Date, start time and venue
Betfair Super Sunday day takes place on Sunday, February 21, 2021, with the first race getting underway at 1:15pm.
The meeting will take place behind closed doors at Newbury Racecourse because of current coronavirus restrcitions.
