Newbury Races

Newbury Racecourse is one of the most popular and visitor-friendly multi-purpose tracks in the country. It stages a high standard of flat and jump racing throughout the year.

The circuit is one mile and seven furlongs round and is unusually wide, with generous bends and a long home straight that mean it favours the long-striding galloper.

The Ladbrokes Trophy - formerly the Hennessy Gold Cup - is run in late November and is one of the premier long-distance chases each winter. The Betfair Hurdle, which began life as the Schweppes, is a fiercely competitive handicap hurdle staged in February. It is now part of a Saturday card that gives useful pointers to the Cheltenham Festival.

Early summer sees some fabulous flat racing at Newbury races. The course stages two classic trials, the Fred Darling Stakes and the Greenham Stakes, while its only Group 1 race is the Lockinge Stakes, run over the straight mile.

Newbury Races Tips

  • With Lambourn, the second biggest training centre in the country, just 20 miles away, Newbury Racecourse is a popular destination for its jump racing trainers.
  • Nicky Henderson sends a lot of runners to the track and a healthy proportion of them make the frame.
  • Nico de Boinville, who rides for Henderson, has a good record at Newbury races as a result, but Richard Johnson also excels on the horses he rides for Philip Hobbs.
  • On the flat, John Gosden and William Haggas are highly effective with the horses they send from Newmarket, while Charlie Appleby has an eye-catching strike rate.
  • Among flat jockeys, horses ridden by Frankie Dettori and William Buick are worth extra attention.
  • The draw should be taken into account on the straight course. In fields of 20 runners or more, those drawn 14 and above are favoured.

The jockey's view

Bryony Frost
By Bryony Frost - Most successful female jump jockey in history

Newbury Racecourse is one of the biggest tracks to ride. It’s simple and relatively flat, with two big sweeping bends at the top and bottom and straightforward jumping. You need a horse who can withstand a good gallop. It’s a simple track but the opportunities for a breather are very few. They move for home earlier than most, so you need a horse with speed.
