You will find presently 5 All Weather race courses within the United kingdom Lingfield Park, Kempton, Southwell, Wolverhampton and Great Leighs which isn’t isn’t presently active

Lingfield Park

Lingfield Park was the very first all weather course within the United kingdom. It had been opened up two decades ago and it is the house of probably the most exclusive all weather equine race the wintertime Derby. Lingfield’s course is really a triangular formed layout on the polytrack surface.


Using its sharp bends and short finishing straight this suggest that horses that either front run or at best lie up handily using the pace have a very good record. The draw may also play a significant part in identifying the champion. In sprint races horses attracted low possess a distinct advantage particularly in 5 and 6 furlong races.

Kempton Park


Opened up in March 2006 this floodlit Polytrack synthetic grime course is really a right-handed oblong of 8 or 10 furlongs, based on if the inner or outer bend can be used.


Generally quite a fair track high amounts will have an absolute advantage in sprint races as much as 7 furlongs. Since it is the only real right handed all weather course it may pay to follow along with horses which have run well formerly in the track.



At Southwell the horses race on fibre sand which provides a significantly greater kickback than when racing on the polytrack surface. It’s a lozenge formed course having a course inside.


Laid with fibresand which rides deep, stamina-laden entertainers hold a benefit over their rivals Horses that may run conspicuously and therefore steer clear of the kickback of sand have a tendency to run best. It’s frequently the situation that some horses really don’t like either the kickback and/or running at first glance so it’s frequently better to see a equine the very first time it runs only at that course. In Five furlong sprints horses attracted low have a tendency to prosper.



This popular Midlands course is among the two all-weather tracks that take advantage of ton lighting and thus can stage evening conferences in mid-winter. The Friday and Saturday evening conferences are very well supported even when the standard from the racing isn’t the finest. It’s a tight oblong formed course having a polytrack surface.


Due to it sharp bends this program is fantastic for nimble runners who are able to hold their position. Many horses have disposed of their chances by running wide in the bends. Horses attracted low possess a distinct advantage in five and 6 furlong sprints however in longer races the result from the draw is less noticeable.

Great Leighs

This Kent track opened up in 2008 but entered administration 9 several weeks after opening. There has been several tries to get its licence to race again which is wished that meeting might be held again only at that course from 2011
