Stratford-upon-Avon is famous for being the birthplace of legendary playwright William Shakespeare, but the town is also home to a spectacular racecourse. At that racecourse, there were plenty of thrilling UK horse racing results yesterday (19 April).
On a day when the going was good, Guard of Honour astounded punters with an epic 16/1 victory in the 14:00 Novices Handicap Hurdle. That result was followed with a 4/1 win for Narcissist in the 14:30 Novices Limited Handicap Chase.
One Term then claimed the 15:00 Handicap Chase at 13/2, after which Molly Malone won the 15:30 Handicap Chase at 4/1. But that would be the end of outsider victories, with three-straight favourites winning the final races.
Bon Chic rode to victory at 2/1 in the 16:00 Mares Handicap Hurdle, with Tugboat steaming in to win the 16:30 Hunters Chase. Carnigli finished things off with a 4/5 win in the 17:00 Novices Hurdle.
