Situated in the Scottish borders, Kelso stages national hunt racing through the autumn, winter and spring with their fixtures usually beginning in October and ending, for a summer break, in May.  The course is deep in the countryside on the B6461 Ednam Road which can be reached via the A698. The nearest major town is Galashiels but it is more than 20 miles from the nearest railway station, at Berwick-Upon-Tweed. Buses to the town of Kelso, a mile away, are infrequent.

Left-handed, both the hurdles and chase courses at Kelso are barely a mile in circumference but there is a stiff uphill climb to the finish of around a quarter-of-a-mile and the nature of a race can change after the runners have jumped the final obstacle. Construction of the current track and its facilities began, at Berrymoss, in 1822. It only staged Flat racing at that time but switched to jumping in 1888.

The Morebattle Hurdle, contested in February, is fast becoming an important trial for Cheltenham and there have some high-class winners down the years who have gone on to be prominentat The Festival. Simonsig won it in 2012. The Premier Kelso Hurdle, a Grade 2 novices’ event, is another decent race that usually attracts a quality field.

Nick Alexander’s chasers and Alan Swinbank’s hurdlers have a decent record at Kelso but the trainer to follow, in general is Nicky Richards. He uses this track to educate some of his nicer bumper horses and his chasers also have a good strike-rate.
