The Charlie Hall Chase is one of the biggest renewals on a bumper day of horse racing in the UK and Ireland on Saturday, October 30.

A string of National Hunt stars have won the Grade 2 contest in recent years including Bristol De Mai, Definitly Red and Ballyoptic. Cyrname was first past the post last year and is set to attempt to be the first horse since See More Business in 2000 to win the race in consecutive years.


Paul Nicholls’ charge has a 6lb penalty for triumphing at the left-handed track in 2020 and is one of seven horses to be declared for this year’s renewal, with the field set to go to post at 3.05pm.
