2024 EasyFix Equine Handicap Chase Preview

Scheduled to take place in either late November or early December of each year at the Fairyhouse Racecourse is this Listed Handicap Chase which features at the Winter Festival. The race was previously run over two miles and one furlong but in 2017 was cut back by half a furlong. Due to the time of the year, the ground can be demanding and it has proved fruitful in recent years to look beyond those at the head of the market with plenty of double-figure priced winners.
