The Foxhunters’ Chase is one of three races to be held over the National fences at the Grand National Festival, and is generally run on the first day. 

Run over a trip of two miles and five furlongs, the race is contested by amateur riders, and sits alongside the Foxhunter Chase at the previous month’s Cheltenham Festival. 

Runners regularly run in both, and the Cheltenham contest can serve as a key pointer to Aintree the following month.

Established in 1947, the race has enjoyed a long and interesting history, and was originally run over the full Grand National distance. It has been shortened since, and is usually run on the first day of the Grand National meeting.
