The bet365 Scottish Festival Trials
Saturday 5th February 2022
Edinburgh's Jumps Racing Festival - the build up to Cheltenham and The Grand National Festivals starts here. This fixture is the pinnacle of the jumps season at Musselburgh Racecourse.
** The BIGGEST Cheltenham Trials Weekend in UK! **
Saturday features The Edinburgh National, with fantastic prize money across the weekend; we attract contenders for The Cheltenham and The Grand National Festivals.
Previously we have seen runners go onto win at the big festivals including Nicky Henderson's “We Have a Dream”. We have also welcomed Paul Nicholls, Lucinda Russell, Fergal O'Brien & Sandy Thomson.
We're only 6 miles from Edinburgh City Centre with direct transport links and a courtesy bus from Wallyford and NewCraighall train stations. For transport information, click here.
An excellent atmosphere, a great choice of places to eat and drink and the perfect way to see some of the country's top owners, trainers, jockeys and horses in action. A must for all National Hunt Festival fans.
Children 17 years and under are admitted FREE at Musselburgh Racecourse when accompanied by a paying adult so bring the whole family along for a great day out.
