Key Characteristics

There arenít any great biases on this course although if horses get a soft lead races can often be stolen from the front. The July course actually ranks 6 out of 37 of all the UK courses for front runners. In other words it definitely favours horses that lead.

Also when they use the nearside course at Newmarket their is a strip of ground closest to the rail which is thought to be faster.
