A Guide To Haydock Racecourse

Published on 07/07/17

Haydock Park is a dual-purpose racecourse that can be found between Manchester and Liverpool. It draws crowds from far and wide for what is usually highly-competitive Racing, some of which is top-class.

The flat course stages lots of competitive handicaps such as the Old Newton Cup, whilst the Lancashire Oaks has been won by horses like Endless Times and Great Heavens in recent seasons. However, Haydock’s best flat-race is the Haydock Sprint Cup in September, which has been won by popular horses such as Quiet Reflection, Twilight Son, Society Rock and Dream Ahead.

Meanwhile, the highlight of the jumps season is the Betfair Chase, with the likes of 4-time winner Kauto Star and 3-time winner Cue Card packing the place to the rafters.

The Courses

The Flat Course is 13-furlongs long, and this flat, left-handed, oval-shaped course has a run-in measuring 4½-furlongs, giving horses ample time to get into a challenging position. However, in big-fields in races run around the bend, it is often an advantage to be drawn low. Meanwhile, races over 5 and 6 furlongs are run on the straight course. On fast-ground it often pays to race prominently, though those tactics can back-fire if the ground is soft if a horse has any doubts regarding stamina.

The jumps course is also left-handed, and the tight turns require a horse to have a bit of toe to maintain a decent position in quickly run races, especially on decent ground. The Swinton Hurdle in May is often run on decent ground, and it’s no surprise that many of the winners have had experience of racing in decent flat-handicaps before their attentions were switched to hurdling.

However, stamina is also at a premium on proper winter ground, when conditions are often very demanding. Indeed, when the ground is heavy, it’s often a good idea to look for horses that have won over longer trips.

Flat Trainers And Jockeys To Note

Tom Dascombe has been the trainer to follow on the flat in the last 3 seasons, with his 31 winners from 194 runners amassing a level-stakes profit of over £50. Therefore, it’s no surprise that his stable-jockey Richard Kingscote also does well here, with his 39 winners from 201 rides returning over £40 profit.

Jumps Trainers And Jockeys To Note

Paul Nicholls has had 7 chase winners from just 16 runners here in the last 3 seasons, but the big-profit makers are Lucinda Russel’s hurdlers who have returned a profit of over £43. Meanwhile, Daryl Jacob is a jockey to follow with 7 winners from just 12 runners for a £25 profit. Champion Jockey Richard Johnson also does well here, with 5 winners from 15 rides returning a £9 Level-Stakes Profit.
