Hamilton Racecourse

Racecourse Guide

Hamilton is a small track that has witnessed many improvements in recent years and its meetings are particularly well attended. The going tends to be on the soft side during the early-season fixtures and runners generally stick to the far rail. Hamilton is just fifteen minutes from Glasgow and is a regular haunt for all of the top northern trainers.

The Effect of the Draw

High numbers tend to be at a slight advantage, at races over 1 mile 65 yards especially. Cross out the bottom six stalls when there are more than fourteen runners in races of up to 1 mile 65 yards.
