Newmarket Racetrack Guide

Newmarket has two racetracks, the Rowley Mile and July Course, and is recognized as the headquarters of UK flat racing with over 50 training yards and 3500+ thoroughbreds in the town.

Type of Racing: Flat

The Newmarket racetracks stage around 40 meetings a year split between the two, including summer evening racing.

The Rowley Mile track hosts meetings through April, May, and then September and October.

The July Course meetings run from June to August and also host the Newmarket July Festival.

Rowley Mile Highlights: The first two classics of the English turf flat season, the 1000 Guineas and 2000 Guineas are held usually the first weekend in May.

The Rowley Mile Course also stages the end-of-season Cambridgeshire and Cesarewitch meetings in September and October featuring the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes and Cheveley Park Stakes for two-year-olds.

July Course Highlights: The summer July Festival featuring the Group 1 July Cup for sprinters is held here in early July.

Newmarket Racecourse Map

Both the Rowley Mile & July Course at Newmarket share starting points for races run over 10 furlongs and upwards. The July Course breaks off first at the mile point whilst the Rowley Mile straight is encountered half a furlong later.

Both courses are wide and galloping with undulations with a slight climb to the finish. The 'dip' on the Rowley Mile a couple of furlongs from home can cause horses to become unbalanced.

How To Use The Picks For Newmarket Races

On this page along with the Newmarket pointers below, you will find 1000 Guineas picks and 2000 Guineas picks from OLBG's knowledgeable horse racing tipsters, plus their Newmarket predictions throughout the season. The most tipped Newmarket runners for each race are highlighted above, click on the race time to view all the race picks.

Because they have two courses and have so many meetings at Newmarket, gate placement is variable which can make any track bias unpredictable. Be sure to check for news on gate placement, fresh strips of ground, and any bias he notes before the meet starts.

In races with lots of runners like the 1000 and 2000 Guineas and the Cambridgeshire Handicap, the runners will often split into two or more groups so the advantage can be with runners following where the pacesetters are positioned rather than any post-position bias.

The Rowley Mile Course is wide and galloping in nature with a slight climb to the finish, you will hear commentators mention the 'dip' inside the final two furlongs where horses especially inexperienced maidens can become unbalanced, races can be won and lost going into and coming out of the dip.

Similar to the Rowley Mile, the July Course is undulating and those who have watched races know it suits galloping types who are comfortable striding out, you need to stay the distance on both courses with a steady uphill climb to the winning line. 

Trainer Mark Johnston has had a very good record on the July Course since 2015 which is not surprising as many of his runners tend to race handily or force the pace. The great unbeaten 'Frankel' won his very first race on the July Course at Newmarket.

With over 50 training stables based in and around Newmarket, you get a lot of talking horses and stable whispers, bookies in the town, and of course tend to be in the know, especially in 2-year-old races where there is little previous form.
