Newcastle Racing Tips - UK Flat Racing Guide

Newcastle racecourse is a wide, left-handed oval of 1m 6f with spur for straight 7f and further spur for 1m 2f events.

The long, uphill 4f straight makes Newcastle a stayers’ track, while the gentle bends allow the more galloping horses to find their stride. The ground can get very testing too, so this is not a place for the faint-hearted.

Notable Race: The track comes alive in late June for the running of the Northumberland Plate, a competitive handicap over 2m, with prize money of £200k on offer (2007). It was first run in 1883 and was originally known as the Pitmen's Derby as it afforded a rare holiday for the local mining families who flocked to the course to enjoy the racing. 

Draw Bias - Low numbers have a slight advantage on the round course. In sprints, it is more important to get a fast start, with prominent racers having a fine record over 5f in particular.

Bettingpro Notes: Tim Easterby sends out plenty of winners her form his North Yorkshire base, particularly in sprint handicaps. The underrated David Allan will always do his best for you.
