Haydock Racecourse Guide

Haydock Park in Merseyside features high-class National Hunt and Flat racing throughout the year.

Type of Racing: Flat & NH

NH Highlights: The Grade 1 Betfair Chase at Haydock is the pinnacle of their National Hunt season, the race takes place in November often on testing ground conditions and has been won by top-quality chasers like Kauto Star, Cue Card, Silviniaco Conti and Bristol De Mai in recent years.

On the same day as the Betfair Chase is the Betfair Stayers Handicap Hurdle, another race which can be very demanding and attracts large fields but, find the winners and it can be very rewarding. Early in the year, we have the Peter Marsh Chase, a race that can feature some of the top three milers.

In February Haydock hosts a Grand National Trial, however, the form of the winner of this has been questionable, from twenty-five winners only one went on to win next time out. Lord Du Mesnil (2021) was the last winner to head straight to the National and he failed to finish that race, Vieux Lion Rouge in 2017 also went straight to Aintree and he managed a sixth-place finish.

During May, Haydock hosts a noteworthy event outside of the regular jumps season - the Swinton Handicap Hurdle. This race typically draws in a good number of competitors and takes place on the same day as the Long Distance Handicap Hurdle.

Flat Highlights: The Group 1 Haydock Sprint Cup in September is the most prestigious event. Worth over £150k, the race attracts the top sprinters from around Europe and on the same day there is the Old Borough Cup, a class two handicap run over one mile and six furlongs.

In July we get to see the fillies and mares in the Group 2 Lancashire Oaks which has been present since 1939 and has been won by the likes of Alpinista who went on to win the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe the following year. That racecard also features the class two handicap, the Old Newton Cup which more often than not throws up a decent-priced winner.

In terms of heritage handicaps, the Silver Bowl is contested in May and is restricted to three-year-old runners which can attract decent-sized fields.

Overall Haydock Park has 10 Graded races over jumps and 8 Group races on the flat.

Haydock Draw Bias

If you want the most profitable stall at Haydock then you need to look at races over 6f and focus on stall 6 as this has produced an LSP of +55.91 over the last five years. When breaking Haydock down into trips then you can look at which stall and trip combination has produced the worst LSP, that would be stall 2 over a trip of 1m which has, over the last five years produced an LSP of -72.94.

Here we have the draw bias for Haydock taken into consideration races with ten or more runners, we will break down the figures by race distance, draws can be much more important over the shorter trips in which runners do not have time to find their position during the race meaning the draw is probably more important than the races over longer distances.

  • Sprints (5f to 7½f)
  • Mile (1m to 1m1½f)
  • Middle Distance (1m2f to 1m5½f)

The following table shows a breakdown over a group of trips and shows how each position of the draw does, for example in a twelve-runner race would be Low (Stalls 1-4), Mid (Stalls 5-8) and High (Stalls 9-12), the positions will always be lowest stall number to highest.
