Tips for Wolverhampton Racecourse

Wolverhampton has grown in importance since its first All-Weather meeting in 1993. Of the 7 current All-Weather tracks, Wolverhampton held the most meetings in 2017 so it can pay horse racing tipsters to follow Wolverhampton form lines.

In 2015 the fibresand track was replaced by a Tapeta surface, trainers, jockeys and owners seem satisfied with the new surface for their horses and the standard of runners at the West Midlands track has improved in recent years.

Wolverhampton Highlights: The big race at Wolverhampton is the Listed Lady Wulfruna Stakes, run in March around the same time as the Cheltenham Festival.

It seems flat trainers look at the prize money on offer at the Festival and come over all envious and target this valuable flat race (£28K). The winners over the last few years have come from the big flat stables, of William Haggas, Mark Johnston and David O’Meara

The winner of the Lady Wulfruna tends to go for the All-Weather Mile Championship (£98k) at Lingfield in April. 

Wolverhampton also holds some valuable handicaps for horses primed to run in the early season Lincoln Handicap at Doncaster, as well as some end-of-season Class 2 Nurseries for 2-year-olds.

As mentioned above the synthetic surface was changed to tapeta here in 2015 which is the same as Newcastle's all-weather track but different from the Polytrack at Chelmsford, Kempton, Lingfield and the fibresand at Southwell.

Wolverhampton's surface tends to ride a bit quicker than the tapeta at Newcastle, perhaps due more to the layout whereby Newcastle has a long straight and stamina seems to be more important.

Here we have the draw bias for Wolverhampton 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.
