Newton Abbot in Devon holds around 18 meetings a year from March through to October.
It’s a left handed tight course of just over a mile long. Hurdle races are run at a true gallop, there doesn't seem to be any hanging about (As Thommo would say), with horses looking to race prominently and take further advantage around the tight turns.
The fences are reported by jocks to need jumping and looking at replays you can see what they mean. There is a very short run in from the last fence, if you jump clear at the last you generally win.
Newton Abbot Highlights: The Lord Mildmay Memorial Handicap Chase is Newton Abbots most prestigious race of the year. Run in August over 2 miles 5furlongs, its worth around £25K to the winner. Hobbs, Pipe and Bowen seem to target the prize, Paul Nicholls has tried but yet to win it.
The three big Newton Abbot racedays are Easter Saturday, Ladies Day in June and Family Summer Day in July.

Who are the best jockeys and trainers to bet on at Newton Abbot ?
Jockeys that have travelled for one ride, and jockeys who are in the top three by strike rate should be considered, especially on days where there are other meetings, the top jocks can only be in one place at a time. Alan Johns is one particular example where a healthy strike and a level stakes profit is shown over the past 5 seasons, the majority of his winners are provided by Welsh based trainer Tim Vaughan.
The West Country giants of Paul Nicholls and Philip Hobbs are well clear in the winners table, with Paul Nicholls having a near 30% strike rate but Philip Hobbs showing a positive level stakes profit.

It will be interesting to see which jockeys Paul Nicholls uses regularly now that Sam Twiston-Davies is not his stable jockey, they as a partnership had done well numerically at Newton Abbot. Richard Johnson who on certain days will be at other tracks for Philip Hobbs has a good replacement in the ever reliable Tom O’Brien.
