  • Uttoxeter Racecourse Guide

    Uttoxeter in Staffordshire races on 25 days of the year and is the only racecourse in the county. 

    The track is a left handed course of 1.3 miles. 

    The fences are not especially arduous with speed and fatigue rather than the fences causing horses to fall. It is a speedy track when the going is good, however when it rains a stayer is needed as the course takes on a different demeanour. 

    Speedy horses can over race when the going is good and be picked off by those who have reserved energy on the run in.

    Taking the inside line is the choice of most jockeys, however in the back straight being wider can give an advantage at the next turn. 

    Uttoxeter’s location means it attract horses from the north and south generally leading to decent sized fields and competitive racing, you generally see a good race at the course.

    Type Of Racing: National Hunt Only

    TV Channel: At The Races

    Bookmakers Streaming Services: Ladbrokes, William Hill, Bet 365.

  • Uttoxeter Highlights

    The Midlands Grand National is a great race as tends to attract horses who have swerved Cheltenham handicaps specifically for this 70K race. Those stayers are often the best stayers from specific yards. David Pipe won the race 4 times in recent years, and its notable that trainers like to book good claimers to take off a few lbs, the race is over 4 miles, so those lbs can make all the difference. A claiming jockey has won the race 8 times in the last 20 years.

    The other notable Uttoxeter race is the Listed Summer Cup run in late June. Because the ground is normally decent at this time of the year you get a fast run chase, with the lead changing hands on numerous occasions. It attracts big fields (15 runners+) and has not seen a winning favourite since its inception in 2012.

    Uttoxeter also holds a range of Class 2 and 3 handicaps both over hurdles and fences.

  • Uttoxeter Tips From The Racecourse

    You can see by the trainers record below that those trainers who generally have a lot of above average horses in their stables do well at the track, the races and prize money are such that every race is worth winning, the trainers with better quality horses can find a decent horse to enter.

    The two leading trainers in the country Paul Nicholls and Nicky Henderson know that any of their horses entered at the track are in for a tough race, their results in comparison to other courses is not great. Nicholls, for example has had no winners from 16 starts in the last 3 years (2015-18) and doesn't send many to the Midlands track. Likewise, Henderson has a much better strike rate at other tracks.

    So look for trainers who are sending a good handicapper that has run at another decent National Hunt track, such as Chepstow, Doncaster, Haydock, Ludlow.
