Ffos Las Racetrack Guide

Opened in 2009 and located in West Wales, it is the first new NH track to have opened in Britain for more than 80 years. Built on the site of a disused pit, Ffos Las has recently been sold which could lead to increasing the number of meetings held there.

Type of Racing: Flat and National Hunt

Highlights: Originally, the January meeting (if and when weather permitted) held the two major races of the Ffos Las calendar.

The West Wales National has since moved to April, and the resurrected Welsh Champion Hurdle (handicap) to October, hopefully, to avoid the worst of the climatic conditions.

If there is no current meeting at Ffos Las, whether that be nothing scheduled or the weather has forced an abandonment, then head over to the racing predictions page for picks at other racetracks today.

Ffos Las Racecourse Map

Left-handed and just under 14 furlongs, it is one of the longer circuits. It has two long straights, but both the hurdles and chase tracks have short run-ins after the final obstacle. It is essentially a level track with a slight incline on the back straight and a compensating home straight.

Of the two bends, the home turn is shorter and therefore tighter, but in reality, the course can be described as galloping.

How to get the best Ffos Las picks

Look for trainers with rare runners at the track, it’s a jaunt to Ffos Las and you wouldn’t be sending a horse that far unless you had a chance of some prize money.

The trainers based in Wales naturally like to have winners there as local owners can be in attendance. You can get two Welsh trainers in a race at the top of the betting, always worth a check.

Field sizes tend to be small at the track, making finding a winner a touch easier. As the going can be very testing at times, the ability of horses to see out a longer trip on soft ground can play a huge part.
