Tips From Newton Abbot Racecourse
Hurdle races are run at a true gallop, there doesn't seem to be any hanging about 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.
You can get a lot of 7 runner fields or less, trainers being put off by taking on the big West Country stables and the sheer distance to get to Newton Abbot. The best horse does stand out in many cases and they tend to be ridden with plenty of confidence and towards the front.
