Sedgefield Racecourse Guide & Tips

Sedgefield in County Durham classes itself as “the friendly course” and holds National Hunt fixtures during 10 months of the year. 

Highlights: The best race at Sedgefield is the Durham National. The race is run at the back end of the year and is worth just under £20,000 to the winner.

TV Channel: Sky Sports Racing

Bookmaker Streaming Services Available: bet365, Ladbrokes, William Hill.

Sedgefield is fairly sharp and suits a nippy type of animal who can jump well at speed. The fences are fair to easy, and because field sizes tend to be small some races can be tactical.

The ground can get incredibly testing during the winter months and you will see jockeys looking for the best available ground.

The run-in is fairly short after the last hurdle/fence but uphill and races can change on this stretch, however, the lower quality of the animals often means the best horse stands out and wins the race.

A good course for favourites, it's worth starting your form study with the top of the market. Look at the official ratings of horses as you often get a race where there is a huge discrepancy between the best and worst horses.
