Racing returns to Kelso on Saturday, October 18 with an exciting and valuable card with the first race off at 2.10pm and gates opening at 12.10pm.

After all the excitement of the closest ever finish to a Border Principal Race at the last meeting, the fun continues with the fourth running of the Border Barmy Army Pantomime Horse Race at 1.15pm.

Fourteen pantomime horses go to post each of them sponsored by a wide range of Border businesses in aid of local Macmillan Cancer Support and The Fire Fighters Charity.

The featured race is the EDF/ER Barmoor Handicap Chase run over 3m 2f which carries a total prize fund of £17,000.

Donald McCain has two entered in this race, Beeves and recent Southwell scorer Abbey Storm and both carry the colours of St Boswells owner Paul and Clare Rooney.

Alastair Whillans-trained Gleann Na Ndochais is a bang-in-form Hawick contender after his exploits at Perth earlier this autumn.
