  • Newbury Racetrack Guide

    Newbury in Berkshire is a Grade 1 track packed with quality races under both codes. 

    The flat highlights include the Group 1 Lockinge Stakes in early May and Group 2 Hungerford and Dubai Duty-Free. The £200k Lockinge Stakes, Group 1 run over a mile has been won by top horses like Canford Cliffs, Ribchester and the unbeaten Frankel in the past.

    Over Jumps, there is the Grade 1 Challow Novice Hurdle as well as a plethora of Graded jump races including the Ladbrokes Trophy (formerly known as the Hennessy Gold Cup) and the Betfair Hurdle in February. The Ladbrokes Trophy (formerly known as the Hennessy Gold Cup) meeting in November is Newbury's major jumps festival and national hunt enthusiasts have witnessed the very best top class chasers win the 'Hennessy' in years gone by with the likes of Denman carrying a hefty weight of 11 st 12 lbs and jumping his rivals into submission, one of the many highlights.

    Newbury plays host to 23 Group and Graded races in total which attracts the cream of Southern-based trainers and those from the nearby training centre at Lambourn (14 miles away).

    On the flat Charles Hills, Clive Cox and Mick Channon are all based in or around the Lambourn area, over jumps you have Nicky Henderson, Oliver Sherwood and Warren Greatrex, in total there are over 30 trainers who belong to the Lambourn Trainers Association, runners from this training centre should always be noted by horse racing tipsters.

    Flat & National Hunt: Left-handed, the straight mile (for flat races) is a little undulating otherwise it's mainly level and suits galloping types. The fences are fairly stiff and are a true test for chasers.

    Flat draw bias: There seems little bias at Newbury with most races up to a mile run on the wide straight course. In longer races around a bend, there is enough room to keep out of trouble.

  • Newbury Draw Bias

    When breaking Newbury down into trips then you can look at which stall and trip combination has produced the best LSP, that would be stall 5 over a trip of 7f which has, over the last five years produced an LSP of +132.63. Backing stall 3 at Newbury over a trip of 7f is the most unsuccessful stall and trip combination at Newbury returning an LSP of -79.13 over the last five years.

    Here we have the draw bias for Newbury 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.
