Sandown Park Racecourse

Racecourse Guide

One of the principal dual-purpose tracks in Britain, virtually all of Sandown's twenty-six meetings feature top-class racing. On the Flat, there are a number of pattern races highlighted by the Group 1 Coral-Eclipse in July. The three evening meetings are also not to be missed. Over fences, the steeplechase course offers one of the most exciting spectacles in racing, particularly the Railway Fences, three obstacles taken in quick succession down the back straight. The Whitbread Gold Cup brings the National Hunt season to an official close on a day that also features pattern races on the Flat.

The Effect of the Draw

On the 5f course, high numbers are always best in fields of twelve or more runners, particularly on soft ground. In smaller fields, low numbers are best when the runners all stay up the stand rail. Pay close attention to where the stalls are positioned here. High numbers are definitely best over 7f16yds in fields of twelve or more runners, apart from on soft when the fields tend to come stand side in round-course races. Concentrate on: 5f: (stalls stand side) the bottom three stalls on soft ground when 11 or fewer runners, (stalls far side) the top three stalls on soft ground when 11 or fewer runners, the top four stalls when 12+ runners (particularly on soft ground), 7f16yds: only runners drawn in double figures when 15+ runners (apart from on soft).
