  • Tips For Newmarket Racecourse

    Newmarket is the home of UK flat racing and holds nine Group 1 races, ten Group 2 races and fourteen Group 3 races.

    Newmarket stage 2 of the 5 Classics, the 1000 and 2000 Guineas run on subsequent days in early May.

    The track has two courses the Rowley Mile and July Course.

    Early in the season the Rowley Mile course is used, then mid-summer sees the July course utilised before going back to the Rowley Mile for the remainder of the flat season.

    The Rowley Mile course is wide and galloping in nature, with a slight climb to the finish.

    You will hear commentators mention the dip in the course where horses can become unbalanced, races can be won and lost going into and coming out of the dip.

    It has the longest straight of all racecourses, two of the UK flat season's big betting handicap races are held on the Rowley Mile course in October. The Cambridgeshire is run over 9 furlongs, and the latter in the month Cesarewitch run over 2 miles and 2 furlongs starts in Cambridgeshire and finishes in Suffolk!

    The July Course is undulating and those who have watched races know it suits galloping types who are comfortable striding out, you need to get the distance on both courses at Newmarket. The great unbeaten 'Frankel' won his very first race on the July Course at Newmarket.

    It cannot be overstated how important are the races run at Newmarket to finding subsequent winners at smaller tracks, you need your notebook at the ready.

    Both courses attract the cream of flat horses with every race being competitive.

    Newmarket Draw Advantage:  Because they have two courses and have so many meetings at Newmarket stall placement is variable, this makes any draw bias unpredictable. Listen out to the clerk of course when he talks about stall placement, fresh strips of ground, and any bias he notes.

    Newmarket 'Outright' Favourites (since 2013): The July course over the last 5 years has a higher percentage of favs winning than the Rowley Mile course, if you are taking on a fav at Newmarket, look to the Rowley Mile course.

    July Course: 35%

    Rowley Mile Course: 32%

    Because so many stables are based in and around Newmarket you get a lot of talking horses and stable whispers, those bookies on course tend to be in the know, especially in 2 year old races where there is little previous form.

    Many of the horses that run at Newmarket have high aspirations, so look for say a handicapper who is Listed class or a Group 3 horse who could move up to Group 2.  

    Always check the official ratings of the horses, they are an excellent guide to quality. 

    The pedigree of horses is of greater importance in the higher quality of races, the current top sire of Newmarket winners is Dubawi. Look to Frankel offspring in the coming seasons. 

    Look for horses running at Newmarket who previously ran well at other Group 1 tracks (Ascot, Doncaster, Epsom, Haydock, Sandown, York).

    Long striding galloping types seem to be suited by Newmarket.

  • Newmarket Racecourse Map

    Both the Rowley Mile & July Course at Newmarket share starting points for races run over 10 furlongs and upwards. The July Course breaks off first at the mile point whilst the Rowley Mile straight is encountered half a furlong later.

    Both courses are wide and galloping with undulations with a slight climb to the finish. The 'dip' on the Rowley Mile a couple of furlongs from home can cause horses to become unbalanced.

  • Betting On Newmarket Group 1 Races

    • 1000 Guineas (Rowley Mile Course)
    • 2000 Guineas (RM)
    • Cheveley Park Stakes (RM)
    • Darley July Cup (July Course)
    • Dewhurst Stakes (RM)
    • Falmouth Stakes (July Course)
    • Fillies Mile (RM)

    The nine Group 1 races at Newmarket carry the most prize money and are the most prestigious. The races are really competitive as you can imagine. 

    The top flat trainers target these high value Newmarket races and Group 1 winners when sent to stud can earn millions in stud fees. 

    As an example, a 2000 Guineas winner could cover 100 mares a year, at £75.000 a pop that is 7.5 million!!. 

  • Newmarket 'Rowley Mile Course' Jockey & Trainer Statistics

    John Gosden just heads the numerical winners list at the Newmarket 'Rowley Mile' Course over the past 5 seasons but you would be showing a level stakes loss if you backed all his runners over that period. If you focus on his 'Non Handicap' runners you would be showing a profit, perhaps the handicapper is a little harsh in 'over accessing' his runners who don't make the grade at pattern level and as a result find life tough in handicaps.

    Richard Hannon Jnr just shades it at the top of the numerical winners table but you would need to be a little selective as backing all his runners to win using level stakes would have returned an overall loss (backing each way would have returned a profit). For example, focusing on his 2 year old runners in nursery handicaps would have returned a nice strike rate and level stakes profit.
