Worcester Racetrack Guide

Worcester Racetrack is situated on the banks of the River Severn in an idyllic spot, however, like the nearby New Road cricket ground, the course does run the risk of flooding from the Severn.

Worcester features National Hunt racing only and has around 20 race days from May through to October.

Highlights: The highest grade of race is Class 3 and it is not seen as a track where trainers take their best horses. The main meetings are Ladies' Day in June, two Family Fun Days in June & September, and Irish Night in July. The races are well supported by trainers and many a plot takes place from relatively small stables.

Picks From Worcester Racetrack

The track is oval and very flat, inexperienced horses are often taken to Worcester to give them racecourse experience on this fair track. The fences do not take much jumping and too many, it seems the course is more suited to the casual racegoer enjoying a day out, rather than the hardened punter. A long home straight means results can change and the TV camera angle of the run-in after the last can be a little deceptive for in-play punters.

The ease of the track is why you often get big fields at Worcester as trainers are not risking their owner's pride and joy, take note when a trainer ran an unplaced horse or faller at a bigger track on its previous run, Worcester can be seen as a track to build back a horse’s confidence.

So we know that Worcester often has big field handicaps where smaller trainers are in with a shout of getting a winner or at least some prize money. It's really a mixture of smaller trainers plotting up a horse versus bigger trainers giving their novices or below top-grade handicappers a chance of a win.  

You’ll notice the number of Worcester picks made above on each horse on OLBG, these are also expressed in % terms and the number of picks made with comments for each one.
