The Welsh Champion Hurdle

CLASS 2 Limited Handicap 4yo+

Ffos las racecourse 2m4f


Restarted at Ffos las racecourse after a gap of 8 years since the last running at Chepstow racecourse, this race has not had much luck in that the race has only been run once and the other two runnings had to be abanbonned due to poor weather conditions.

The only running of the race was in 2011 when the very smart Oscar Whiskey won for the racourse owner Dai Walters.

The race distance has been upped since then to 2 miles and 4 furlongs and has become a handicap, therefore the race conditions have changed somewhat and it is hoped that the race will have the popularity that it did back in 1976/1977 when the dual winner was Night Nurse who Timeform rated at 182, the highest rating ever awarded to a hurdler.
