Class 3 Handicap Chase

The Class 3 Handicap Chase is the fourth race that is run on Jump Sunday at Kempton Park Racecourse every October.

Jump Sunday, which takes place on a Sunday afternoon in October and features a fantastic seven-race card, is the first National Hunt jump racing event at Kempton Park Racecourse following a summer of high-quality, intensive flat racing.

Kempton Park Racecourse, located near the Greater London boundary in Surrey, hosts a variety of racedays and meetings throughout the year owing to its excellent all-weather racecourse and floodlighting facilities.

The Christmas Festival is the most well-known of these events, with races like The Desert Orchid Chase, The Christmas Hurdle, and The King George VI Chase, the second most prestigious steeplechase in British jump racing behind The Cheltenham Gold Cup.
