Southwell Racing betting tips - Guide to UK Flat Racing

Southwell racecourse is a left-handed all-weather track (Fibresand).

Southwell is different to the other three all-weather tracks. Firstly, it is the only one with a Fibresand surface, which can get very deep and testing, particularly following dry or frosty weather. That, allied with the long straights and sweeping bends, gives relentless gallopers an advantage. It’s no wonder that the track has its fair share of specialists, while horses with form beyond the trip that they are racing over often prevail. Kick-back is a distinctive factor here.

Draw Bias: Generally fair, although low to middle numbers are slightly favoured over the straight 5f course. It’s more important to be drawn where the pace is. On the round track, wide draws over 6f and 7f are a definite disadvantage.

Bettingpro Notes: About a third of David Baron 3yo’s prevail in handicaps, and he has an even better record with older horses.
