 Owned privately, Leicester racecourse can be found at Oadby which is two miles south of the city centre just off the A6. Take Junction 21 from the M1 and follow directions for the racecourse on the outer ring road. A bus service runs from Leicester station on racedays.

The Leicestershire Stakes, a 7f Listed contest for four-year-olds and upwards run in April is the course’s feature race but the right-handed galloping track has proved a valuable proving ground for highly-rated two-year-olds down the years. The straight course which joins the 2m-long round course around 3f from the finish being regarded as a fair test for juveniles looking for experience. On the aforementioned straight course, a low draw can prove a disadvantage but middle numbers are probably better than high as the going can get quite tacky close to the stands’ rail when the ground is softer or worse. In big fields, a low draw can sometimes be an advantage but speed from the stalls is equally important to get a good position over a mile-and-a-quarter, though horses fully need to stay the distance if they are to be successful at Leicester.

Marcus Tregoning’s runners can often be worth a second look but the betting is always a good guide when the big Newmarket and Lambourn yards have entries in maidens.


The national hunt course is quite testing in nature but the fences are not particularly intimidating. The entertainment on offer in winter is usually low-key and no significant races take place on the chase or hurdles tracks but Neil King and Jonjo O’Neill get a few hurdles winners while Venetia Williams and Paul Webber find opportunities for their chasers.
