 UTTOXETER

Uttoxeter is a twisting, mostly left-handed oval -shaped NH course, just over 1m2f in circumference. The back straight has a dog-leg to the right and it is quite undulating as it rises over Clump Hill. The run into the half-mile home straight is downhill, however, and the track levels out as it approaches the stands.
It can be a long way home off the final turn but those that like to race up with the pace do surprisingly well and can advantage steal a decisive advantage if able to quicken off the final turn.
There has been racing at Uttoxeter since 1907, when the license to stage fixtures transferred from the now-defunct Keele Park. The Staffordshire venue was the first course in the country come under the ownership of Northern Racing, in 1988. The green and white colours of the late Sir Stanley Clarke, founder of Northern Racing, were often seen on the course.
The English Summer National in July is attracting some useful chasers nowadays but the Midlands Grand National, staged in March, is the track’s big race of the year and has produced some notable winners. Ill-fated Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Synchronised won it in 2010 and it’s always a true test of jumping and staying power, though no chaser younger than seven or older than nine has won it in the last 10 years. David Pipe’s stable has won with a couple of long-priced outsiders recently and the form book isn’t always the best guide to these staying chases at the back end of the season.
Located in the Dove valley, Uttoxeter is within easy walking distance of the town centre on the A50 between Burton-on-Trent and Stoke. The course is signposted from the A51 and A515 and Uttoxeter Station, which has direct services to Manchester, Birmingham and Derby, has a platform with access to the enclosures.
Tim Vaughan and Nigel Twiston-Davies’ hurdlers do well and Jennie Candlish, Lawney Hill, David Pipe and Emma Lavelle’s runners in chases show a profit over the last five years. Rebecca Curtis and Jamie Snowden’s runners are also worth close inspection.
