Southwell Races

Southwell Racecourse is one of the busiest tracks in the country. The Nottinghamshire venue hosts regular all-weather race meetings as well as jump racing all year round.

The course is a flat, left-handed oval of one mile and two furlongs. Unlike all other all-weather tracks in Britain, which have a Polytrack surface, Southwell uses Fibresand, which is deeper, slower and produces a lot more kickback.

As a result, Southwell races produces a lot of course specialists who have become used to the surface and deliver their best form there.

Southwell Racing Tips

  • Michael Appleby is the trainer with most runners and winners at Southwell races, but Karl Burke shows a good return from far fewer entrants. Richard Hughes has also had some notable successes there since joining the training ranks.
  • Ben Curtis is the man in the saddle to follow, though Sean Levey has an impressive strike rate from fewer rides.
  • Over the jumps, Midlands-based trainer Dan Skelton and his jockey brother Harry Skelton have a fine record, while Nicky Henderson and Fergal O’Brien do very well with the runners they send to Southwell Racecourse.

The jockey's view

By Bryony Frost - Most successful female jump jockey in history

Southwell Racecourse is one of the simplest tracks going but has some of the biggest complications, which is bizarre in itself. It’s as flat as a pancake, and you can get quite testing ground there. It's got two extremely simple bends, with two extremely simple straights, and winners can come from anywhere.

In one race I was 40 lengths behind on the back straight. I was at 999/1 in the running at that point, and I managed to win by five lengths! They bring in the chase and hurdles separately, so it’s all on one track – you can’t go wrong. The hurdles are like mini fences, they’ve got quite a big belly and they have birch tops, so sometimes horses that don't enjoy their fences so much come to Southwell because the hurdles take a bit more jumping than average. It can give them an opportunity to get into the groove.

You wouldn’t panic if you were on a hold-up horse. If you’re in front you don’t think you’ll get swallowed. Southwell always gives you options to win!
