FAKENHAM

Racing first took place at Fakenham in 1905 and the course has always enjoyed excellent local support. It is a big supporter of country sports itself. Initially, just one meeting per year was held on Easter Monday and all races were run over fences, a legacy of its roots in the point-to-point field. However, in 1926, hurdling was introduced and the tradition of starting 3m chases on open fields alongside the main road was ended with the small West Norfolk course gradually undergoing development as fixtures increased. Racing is nowadays staged from January to June and again in October and November.


Left-handed, Fakenham is one of the tightest national hunt circuits in the country, only being a mile in circumference and almost square. It suits handy types and those with form on the Flat will often get home around here if they’ve been struggling to stay elsewhere. The fences are stiffer than they look, however, and will catch out the unwary.


The course is on the B1146 Dereham Road, close to the A1065 and A148, but the nearest railway station is 22 miles away in King’s Lynn. It is 25 miles from Norwich

.
Caroline Bailey’s chasers have a particularly good strike rate but it’s also worth watching anything that Renee Robson sends to Fakenham and both Evan Williams and Tim Vaughan’s runners rarely waste a trip to Norfolk from Wales.
