Aintree Racecourse 


Aintree Racecourse is a racecourse in Aintree, Merseyside, England. The racecourse is best known for annually holding the world-famous Grand National steeplechaseIt is regarded as the most difficult of all courses to complete successfully, with 16 steeplechase fences including renowned obstacles the Chair, Foinavon, Valentine's, Canal Turn and Becher's Brook. These are so infamous that even their names strike fear into the most professional of jockeys. All fences bar the water jump are covered with spruce, unlike at any other course in British National Hunt racing.​​​​​​​

Ascot Racecourse 


The Ascot course is a large galloping track of 14 furlongs circumference with a 2.5 Furlong run in. Races shorter than a mile are normally run on the straight course. Nowadays the ground in the straight drains quicker than the rest of the course so going descriptions can vary. Our analysis indicates is that hold up horses have been heavily favoured.

Ayr Racecourse 


Ayr is a left handed course of about a mile and a half, with a straight six furlong course which is very wide, with gentle undulations. The course is generally very fair to any type of horse. At Ayr the 5 and 6 furlong races are run on the straight and hold up horses are generally favoured. Over 7 furlongs and a mile which are run on the turn the course is more fair to more prominently ridden horses.

Bangor On Dee Racecourse 


Hosting 15 fixtures through the year, the beautiful countryside track is one of a kind, and the only course in the country without a Grandstand! 

Bangor is a very tight little track mainly due to the many turns that it has with quite an easy finish. It is only a mile and a half all the way round, but is a good test of a horses jumping ability with 9 fences per circuit. Bangor has a short run in of 1 Furlong.

Bath Racecourse

Flat Racing

Bath is the only racecourse not to have watering facilities and therefore the going can get very fast, with a going description of firm not unusual. The run-in is uphill all the way and tends to suit galloping rather than the sharp type of horse. Bath racecourse doesn’t appear to have a particularly large pace bias either way, although it is quite hard for front runners to win. 
In terms of the individual distances, if we look at where Bath ranks against other turf courses which have races over equivalent distances Bath is ranked middle to low for Front Runners for every distance

Beverley Racecourse 

Flat Racing

The 5 furlong course at Beverley is uphill all the way so definitely takes some getting particularly when its soft. Early season 2 year old races over 5 furlongs can be wars of attrition rather than speedfests. Beverley probably has the most well known draw bias in the country.

There is a big pace bias at Beverley, with prominent runners being heavily favoured. If you discover a front runner drawn low at Beverley then bet big!

Brighton Racecourse

Flat Racing

Brighton is a very unusual racecourse, it could be said to be similar to Epsom, but in reality it isn’t similar to anywhere. It has left hand dog leg turn where the horses then come down what could be the steepest descent on a racecourse anywhere in the world, before the uphill final furlong. Brighton suits the small agile type. If your horse is a big galloping type then Brighton certainly isn’t for you. Because of its eccentricities Brighton is very much a course specialists course so I would suggest always looking for horses with previous good form at the track. Course specialism at Brighton applies to Jockeys as well as horses and there is nobody better than Ryan Moore at the course. 

Carlisle Racecourse

Jump/Flat Racing

Carlisle racecourse is just over a mile and a half in distance with a separate chute for the 5 and 6 furlong courses. The 6 furlong course is level for 2 furlongs, and then rises steeply to the furlong pole after which it is flat. It is what could be called a stiff sprint track. Carlisle is quite a stiff track. The pace analysis is very confusing as over 5 furlongs and a mile front runners are heavily favoured. Yet over 6 and 7 furlongs it appears that hold up horses are quite heavily favoured.
