Tips From Newcastle Racecourse

Newcastle Racecourse is a dual code course with National Hunt racing in the winter and All-Weather flat racing all year round.

Type of Racing: Flat (All Weather) & NH

The course currently holds over 50 race days a year, making it the busiest racecourse in the north of England.

Over 30 flat meetings are staged in the evening under floodlights.

There are around a dozen National Hunt meetings from November through to April.

Flat Highlights:  The historic Northumberland Plate or Pitmen’s Derby as the locals call it is held at the end of June and is one of the most valuable staying handicaps in world horse racing.

NH Highlights: The Fighting Fifth Hurdle held towards the end of November is an early-season pointer towards the Champion Hurdle, the Rehearsal Chase takes place on the same day and the Eider Handicap Chase in February is a long-distance staying chase for Grand National possibles.

Newcastle Racecourse Map

Flat Course: An Oval 'All Weather' track with a Tapeta surface, floodlights enable evening racing. Races up to a mile are run on a straight course. No conclusive draw bias on the track.

National Hunt Course: Left-handed galloping, very flat like Newbury. 

The 11 National Hunt fences per circuit are 'stiffish' and need to be approached carefully. Because it’s a galloping track horses can bowl along too quickly, so caution is always needed. A run-in of over 1 furlong is uphill.

Newcastle Racecourse Address: High Gosforth Park, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE3 5HP.

Newcastle Pointers:

Newcastle installed a tapeta all-weather surface in 2016 and since May of that year, all flat race meetings are now held on the tapeta rather than the turf. The track is the northernmost all-weather surface, before this trainers had to travel to Wolverhampton and Southwell to run their horses on the All-Weather. The tapeta is a similar surface to Wolverhampton, these two tracks are the only two all-weather tracks in the UK with this kind of surface. So worth keeping an eye on horses running here for the first time who have winning form at Wolverhampton.

Newcastle Draw Bias (AW)

When breaking Newcastle down into trips then you can look at which stall and trip combination has produced the best LSP, that would be stall 3 over a trip of 1m which has, over the last five years produced an LSP of +110.48. With an LSP of -202.32, the most unsuccessful stall at Newcastle is stall 9 when backing runners over a trip of 1m over the last five years.

Here we have the draw bias for Newcastle 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)
  • Long Distance (1m6f or further)

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.
