WhichBookie racing analyst Andrew Blair White provides a preview and betting tips for races at Limerick on Friday 27th May.
Newbury Racecourse is situated in the county of Berkshire and has been hosting races for over 100 years.
The course hosts the Lockinge Stakes in May which is one of the countries 36 annual Group 1 flat races. With 29 race meetings taking place from February through to December and several big races scheduled, it is an extremely popular racecourse.
Newbury’s course is left-handed and oval in shape, measuring a distance of 1 mile and 7 furlongs around.
The track is mostly flat but can be quite testing when wet. It has a wide and long home straight which suits races between 5-7 furlongs.
The jumps course is again mostly flat and has a water-jump situated in front of the grandstand. There is a tight turn leading around to the finishing line and the fences are known to be rather stiff.
Several notable races take place at Newbury Racecourse each year including The Lockinge Stakes in May, The Greenham Stakes and Fred Darling Stakes in April which are considered to be important trials for the 1000 Guineas Stakes and 2000 Guineas Stakes, the Super Sprint in July, the Geoffrey Freer Stakes in August, the Hennessy Gold Cup in November and the Betfair Hurdle in February which is a 2 mile handicap hurdle and one of the biggest of the season.
