Pontefract Races Tips

  • Pontefract Racecourse’s undulations and uphill finish do not suit all horses, so look out for runners with proven course form.
  • In races of five or six furlongs, horses drawn closer to the inside rail can have an advantage.
  • Yorkshire trainers Richard Fahey, Mark Johnston and Tim Easterby all have plenty of winners at Pontefract races but, from further afield, runners from the stables of Sir Michael Stoute and Ralph Beckett should be respected.
  • At a course that stretches a jockey’s race-reading skills as much as their stamina, Silvestre de Sousa’s strike rate suggests he has mastered the challenge Pontefract Racecourse represents.

It’s still worth checking Pontefract races fixtures because the decision to allow spectators in could change. If you book tickets to a Pontefract Racecourse event that is then moved to behind closed doors, refunds will be processed through the official course website.
