Tips From The Racecourse for Perth Races

Perth racecourse in Scotland is Britain’s most northerly course and stages around 10 main meetings a year generally from April through to September.

Highlights: The Future Champions Novices Hurdle run at the end of April is the highlight, this race has listed status and is worth £15,000 to the winner. On the final day of the three-day Perth meeting is the Highland National which is contested over three miles and six furlongs.

TV Channel: Racing TV

Bookmaker Streaming Services Available from All Bookmakers

The main issue for those who have watched racing from Perth on television is the length of the run-in after the last fence, it does seem to go on forever and results can change in the last 100 yards.

Plus the camera angle can be a little deceptive so be cautious if betting in running on the exchanges, punters have been warned!
