  • Uttoxeter Racecourse Guide

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

    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

    The track is a left-handed course of 1.3 miles. Fairly tight in nature but does favour those with stamina in abundance when the going is testing.

  • Uttoxeter Highlights

    The Midlands Grand National is a great race as it tends to attract horses who have swerved the Cheltenham Festival handicaps specifically for this £70k race.  David Pipe won the race 4 times between 2011 to 2014 with different horses. It's notable that trainers like to book good claimers to take off a few lbs and as the race is over 4 miles 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

    Trainers who generally have a lot of above average horses in their stables do well at the track. Prize money tends to be decent but the two leading trainers in the country, Paul Nicholls and Nicky Henderson, know that their horses entered at the track are in for a tough race and their results in comparison to other courses are not great. More so Paul Nicholls who has had no winners from 18 runners since the start of 2013 and doesn't send many to the Midlands track. Likewise, Nicky Henderson (2 winners from 11 runners here in 2018) has a better strike rate at other tracks.

    Trainers sending a handicap chaser here from running in a chase at Chepstow (9 winners from 42 runners) or Bangor (9 winners from 41) last time out have a good record here.

    OLBG tipsters adding tips on Uttoxeter's outright favourites would be showing a healthy strike rate (40%) and level stakes profit since the start of 2014 (319 wins from 795 races, £53 profit to £1 stakes). 

    The Uttoxeter favourites tend to go off at decent odds because of the races generally being competitive with plenty of runners however the market leader has certainly been a steady profitable source for winner finding.
