    Left handed, very sharp and only a mile in circumference. It is undulating on the back straight and both the hurdles and chase courses have short uphill run-ins. It is one of the tightest tracks in the country.

  • Fakenham Track Guide

    Guide to course: Often pays to follow horses that are up with the pace although being too keen can pay the penalty towards the finish. The tight track suits nimble horses rather than long striding counterparts. Fences are not too severe but due to several races being run at a decent pace, errors tend to cause more casualties than would normally be the case. In the winter months the ground can often be heavier than the official description. 

    Field sizes tend to be on the small size at Fakenham with many races having 6 runners or less, concentrate on the head of the market but not necessarily the fav when adding a Fakenham tip.
