 WARWICK (FLAT)


Warwick stages Flat meetings between April and October with the feature races being the Listed Eternal Stakes and Warwickshire Oaks, which both take place towards the end of June.  Four-year-old fillies tend to dominate the latter contest and the winner is usually well backed. Form in equivalent or Group races is paramount as the standard has been improving in recent years.


Left-handed and fairly sharp in nature, the track is approximately 1m5f in circumference with a separate chute accommodating races up to 6f. Races over 1m and 1m2f also start from spurs adjoining the main course. A low draw is a slight advantage in sprints and up to 7f in big fields, though ability to race up with the pace is just as important. Better ground can often be found under the stands rail and some runners will plot a wide course off the home turn to try and gain an advantage.


The course, close to historic Warwick Castle, has been staging racing since 1707 and can lay claim to be the birthplace of modern NH racing as it was the first in the UK to include a jumps race in an organised meeting.


Ed McMahon and Mark Johnston’s runners are usually worth following, as are Tom Dascombe’s two-year-olds. Andrew Balding and Roger Charlton’s three-year-olds often pop up at decent odds.


The course is just off the A429 on the outskirts of Warwick city centre. From the M40, leave at Junction 15 and follow the signs. Warwick station is a 20-minute walk but you will probably need a taxi to the course from Warwick Parkway.

WARWICK (NATIONAL HUNT)
Left-handed and fairly sharp in nature, the track at Warwick is approximately 1m5f in circumference but the fences come thick and fast on the long back straight and can take some jumping.


The course, close to historic Warwick Castle, has been staging racing since 1707 and can lay claim to be the birthplace of modern NH racing as it was the first in the UK to include a jumps race in an organised meeting.


Jump racing is staged at the Midlands track between November and March, with the major races being the Betfred Classic Chase in January and the Kingmaker Chase in February. The latter has proved a terrific trial for the Arkle Chase at Cheltenham in recent years with the list of winners including Flagship Uberalles, Voy Por Ustedes, Long Run and Finians Rainbow. It should be noted there has only been one winner starting at bigger odds than 7/2 in the last 10 years however.
The course is just off the A429 on the outskirts of Warwick city centre. From the M40, leave at Junction 15 and follow the signs. Warwick station is a 20-minute walk but you’ll probably need a taxi to the course from Warwick Parkway.  Richard Phillips and Charlie Mann’s runners often return a profit and Alan King and Neil King’s chasers do well. Paul Nicholls and Tim Vaughan’s hurdlers are also worth following while it pays to take note of Nigel Twiston-Davies’ horses in bumpers.
