Chepstow Racecourse Map

Left-handed, an oval configuration with the course undulating, making NH races stop-start, it's neither galloping nor speedy, horses over jumps need to get the distance, especially when the going is heavy, as it often is. A 5 furlong home straight takes some getting when horses are becoming tired.

Picks From Chepstow Racecourse

It is key to know that the flat course has a long 1 mile straight, running in a straight line for a mile can take a lot out of a horse, and it seems a long way home. Bends slow horses down, with no bends you can get inexperienced jockeys going off too fast and not getting home, running in a straight line when the going is heavy is even more taxing for the horse.

Look to the top flat jockeys at Chepstow up to a mile as we feel the course needs to be ridden well and pace handled perfectly which the better more experienced jockeys are ably equipped, Adam Kirby riding for Clive Cox is one example.  

When looking at the going description for the Welsh National over the last 10 years, it either featured the word heavy or soft in the description, in some cases both! So look for a mudlark at Chepstow just below top class who is well weighted to win National Hunt races. We would say that you should always check the going description at Chepstow, as this has more relevance to finding winners than at many other race tracks.  Trainers expect heavy and target those from their stables who do not mind 'Somme' like conditions. The Chepstow fences are not the hardest in comparison to other courses but do find out tiring horses, they still need to be jumped!

Chepstow Draw Bias

With an LSP of -52.94, the most unsuccessful stall at Chepstow is stall 1 when backing runners over a trip of 7f over the last five years.

Here we have the draw bias for Chepstow 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.
