Worcester Racecourse, close to the heart of the city that shares its name, is a popular venue for summer jump racing.
Flat, left-handed and with gentle turns, Worcester races has a one mile and five furlong track and hosts competitive racing throughout the warmer months.
Although the flatness of the course and ease of the bends should favour hold-up horses, the fact that much of the racing takes place on firm summer ground means it is preferable to race up with the pace.
Worcester Racecourse is situated on the banks of the river Severn, and can suffer from flooding if the river overflows during the winter or spring.

Worcester Racecourse is similar to Southwell in that they change hurdles for fences and roll them in and off the track. It’s a simple track, with two straights and two long bends. There are small undulations but it's relatively flat and the hurdles are like little brush hurdles. They look like mini fences so horses who don’t quite have the speed for hurdles can go better here, it suits them more.
It has a very long back straight and long home straight. This isn’t a track where you turn in and immediately kick, this is a track where you try to conserve as the run-in can be long as well. It can be a difficult track to get right because straight lines can be tricky to pace.

Worcester races are currently being run behind closed doors because of the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
This is set to be reviewed and updated in line with government advice, with Worcester races keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.
It’s still worth checking Worcester races fixtures because the decision to allow spectators in could change. If you book tickets to a Worcester Racecourse event that is then moved to behind closed doors, refunds will be processed through the official course website.
