Situated alongside the tidal River Severn, Worcester racecourse is vulnerable to the vagaries of the English summer in that heavy rain has lead to the track flooding in the past, as is also the case with the nearby New Road cricket ground which lies at a lower level than the city centre. A totally flat, left-handed oval circuit approximately 1m5f in circumference, Worcester stages National Hunt racing between April and October. The track is just five minutes walk from Foregate Street Station. By road, leave the M5 at Junction Six or Seven and follow the A38 into the city centre.
The quality of racing varies but the track is conveniently located for most training areas in the west side of the UK and some of the bigger yards often have runners. Portable ‘fixed brush’ hurdles are usually used in hurdle races and the course suits long-galloping types rather than handy types. The stables of Lawney Hill and Paul Nicholls are two that enjoy notable success. Jonjo O’Neill’s hurdlers are always worth a second look and A P McCoy has a terrific strike rate among the jockeys, particularly when wearing the green and yellow colours of retainer J P McManus.
