Newbury Racecourse

Racecourse Guide

A top-class Flat and National Hunt track, Newbury's left-handed, galloping course provides a true test of stamina, particularly in wet conditions. The highlights of their National Hunt season include the Hennessy Cognac Gold Cup run at the end of November and the Betfair Hurdle, one of Europe's richest handicap Hurdles, which takes place in February and is increasingly a springboard for live Supreme Novice Hurdle and Champion Hurdle candidates for the Cheltenham Festival the following month. On the Flat, the jewel in their crown is the Group 1 Qipco Lockinge Stakes in May. Newbury can also boast first-class facilities and a superb view of the whole track.

The Effect of the Draw

On the straight course, runners drawn low in big fields generally struggle, whatever the going. When there are twenty or more runners, look first at those drawn fourteen and above. Cross out runners drawn in single figures when there are more than twenty runners in races of up to a mile (straight).
