Click here for Wolverhampton Fixtures
Wolverhampton is the only course in the UK that caters solely for all-weather enthusiasts, the Turf course which hosted the occasional National Hunt fixture having been dug up in 2004. Its Polytrack surface probably is not as quick as that at Lingfield and Kempton (it has more in common with the US dirt tracks) but the runners certainly don’t go in as deep as on the Fibresand at Southwell.
Left-handed, it is completely level and a circuit of the course is just over a mile in circumference. Racing takes place all year round, often under floodlights, and often attracts decent crowds on a weekend. The draw is less of a factor than elsewhere, though those drawn high over 5f will invariably have to swing wide into the 2f straight.
Dunstall Park has been staging regular meetings since the 1920s and can be found one mile north of Wolverhampton city centre on the A449, which can be reached via Junction 12 of the M6. The mainline station is an easy 15-minute walk from the track.
The Listed Lady Wilfruna Stakes and the William Hill Lincoln Trial take place in March and are the highlights of Wolverhampton’s year. The latter has become an important trial for the Lincoln at Doncaster itself. Mark Johnston, Sir Mark Prescott and Roger Varian’s runners all have an impressive strike rate on the course and any three-year-old representing David Lanigan warrants close inspection.
