  • Sandown Racecourse Guide

    Sandown Park in Esher is a Grade 1 track and one of the top dual purpose racecourses in the UK, staging 24 race days a year.

    There are 15 flat meetings of which 5 are summer evening cards featuring some of the best quality night racing in the UK calendar, whilst National Hunt enthusiasts are treated to 9 days of quality jump racing.

    Highlights: Over Jumps the major race of the year is the Grade 1 Tingle Creek Chase in December. Often seen as a good guide for the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, past winners include Master Minded and Sprinter Sacre.

     Also staged on this card is the Henry VIII Novices Chase, another valuable early season race for prospective 'Arkle' contenders at the Cheltenham festival.

    Other notable national hunt days include the Tolworth Hurdle (January), Scilly Isles Novice Chase (February), bet365 Jumps Finale day towards the end of April sees the champion national hunt jockey crowned and features the Celebration Chase (two miles) and the Sandown Gold Cup Chase, a 3-mile 5-furlong handicap chase quite often a final outing of the season for chasers after taking in the Grand National.

    Imperial Cup day in March, traditionally the weekend before the Cheltenham Festival is an excellent days racing before the annual 'pilgrimage' to Gloucestershire for national hunt fans. The ultra-competitive Imperial Cup Handicap Hurdle run over two miles has an added £££ bonus incentive for the winner (Martin Pipe's Blowing Wind a past example) if they decide to take in and win a race at the festival the following week.

    In total there are 10 graded races over jumps.

    On the flat, the Coral-Eclipse run in July is the highlight. Derby winners from the previous month often attempt the Derby/Eclipse double. Recent Derby winners who achieved the double were Sea The Stars in 2009 and Golden Horn in 2015. This race is quite often the first opportunity in the flat season where the best of the current crop of 3 year old's tackle their elders and top middle-distance horses.

    Sandown stages five quality evening flat meetings during the summer, the National Stakes (listed race for 2 year old's) and the Brigadier Gerard Stakes (Group 3) in May are the highlights.

    There are nine Group races on the flat, a Group 1, a Group 2 and seven Group 3’s.

  • Sandown Racecourse Tips

    Sandown is a fair track and true test for a flat or national hunt horse. The final three fences in the back straight known as the 'railway fences' are tricky especially for a novice as they come in quick succession with little ground between to regain momentum if meeting and making an error at the first of those. 

    The first of the two fences in the home straight comes fairly quickly after the final turn and can catch a tiring horse out along with the uphill finish particularly on soft going. The likely race outcome can change after the final fence, horses quite often can be distracted by the noise from the grandstand and wander across to say 'hello'.

With an LSP of -77.00, the most unsuccessful stall at Sandown is stall 1 when backing runners over a trip of 1m2f over the last five years.

    Here we have the draw bias for Sandown 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.
