Doncaster Racecourse

Racecourse Guide

Home to the oldest British Classic, the St Leger, Doncaster offers top quality action on the Flat and over the sticks. Well known for its excellent drainage, the ground rarely turns testing putting the emphasis on basic speed rather than stamina. The four-day St Leger Meeting in September is one of the most popular Festivals and features a clutch of Group and Listed races. Over the jumps, the Skybet Chase in January is always a competitive affair and remains one of the highlights of the National Hunt season.

The Effect of the Draw

Low numbers can be favoured on the soft so watch out for soft ground whenever there's a big field on the straight course. On faster ground, the draw doesn't make much difference. Low numbers are best in big fields on the round course. Concentrate on stalls 1-8 in straight-course races on soft ground (eighteen runners), cross out the top six stalls when fourteen runners over the round mile and the top eight stalls with more than eighteen runners.
