Located on the historic Westwood, approximately a mile from the town centre, Beverley is only 10 miles from Hull and 13 miles from junction 37 of the M62. Trains from Hull to Beverley usually run at half-hour intervals and the town’s station is approximately two-and-a-half miles from the racecourse which equates to a steady walk of about 45 minutes. There is also a bus stop directly outside the main entrance with regular services to Beverley and Hull.
The only track in East Yorkshire, Beverley has expanded its calendar to meet growing demand in recent years and meetings, which are now staged from April to September, are nearly always well attended. There cannot be many tracks in the country where the draw is more important than here when, unless the ground is very heavy, it isa huge advantage to be drawn low in races up to a mile as the ground slopes alarmingly towards the stands from the final turn. Fast-starters in sprint races often make all when well berthed. The course itself has a circuit of just over 1m3f and is right-handed.
The Hilary Needler Trophy, contested by two-year-old fillies in the spring, has proved a surprisingly good trial for Royal Ascot in years gone by while the track’s big race later in the year is now the Listed Beverley Bullet, a 5f sprint for older horses. It has only been run since 2004 but has already produced a future Prix de l’Abbaye winner and is often a stepping stone for horses seeking to earn black type in the autumn.
Tracy Waggott and Bryan Smart both have solid strike rates with their runners at Beverley and Linda Stubb’s two-year-olds often offer a bit of value in maiden auction events. Mark Johnston’s three-year-old handicappers are also worth noting when giving weight to inferior opposition.
