Chester Racecourse App Overview
First of all, you can expect unrivalled access to information from the UK’s oldest racecourse that is still in use. Chester has hosted races since the sixteenth century and still manages to attract crowds of up to 43,000 for its busiest fixtures.
It’s also about the smallest racecourse on the English racing calendar at just one mile and one furlong.
Roodee, as it’s known, is home to a number of significant races especially around May when there is the Chester Cup, Chester Oaks, Huxley Stakes, Chester Vase, Ormonde Stakes and the Dee Stakes.
While the key races are often broadcast on terrestrial television, the Chester Races app is the best way to stay up to date with events year-round.
The first thing that we notice is how the interface is very simple and easy to use. It’s got a nice feel and look, but doesn’t get too worried about looks over usability.
In terms of the features, you can see a full calendar of fixtures at Chester Racecourse, which is updated as they are announced.
Racecards for each fixture, providing details on race times, horses and jockeys mean you know exactly what’s happening on race day.
The live odds and mobile betting facility powered by Betfair is among the best there is so you don’t need to exit the app to start having a punt. This is a really great addition to a course app.
Another nice touch is the live predictions feature, which is offered for each race and indicates which horses will finish 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Take care with this feature – it’s certainly not foolproof but it is quite useful and good fun. You can also expect to view up-to-the-minute results for every race from every Chester fixture.
