Aintree – A Guide To UK Jump Racecourses

Aintree Racecourses

Aintree Racecourse has two flat left handed courses. The Mildmay course is about one mile and three furlongs in circumference and it is where most of their racing takes place.

The chase course is actually sharper than the hurdles course which is not often the case at other racing venues. The other track is known as the Grand National course and has a circuit length of around two miles and two furlongs.

The venue is home to one of the most famous races in the world, that being the “Grand National” which attracts a worldwide audience estimated to be between 500 to 600 million people across the globe from around 140 countries. It is therefore considered a premier racetrack venue in the UK.

There are eighteen graded races per season with five grade three races, three grade two races and ten grade one races with the vast majority of those races taking place during the Grand National meeting, the exceptions being the Old Roan, a grade two chase race run over two miles and four furlongs and takes place in October, plus the Beacher chase which is a recognised trial for the Grand National and is run over three miles and a quarter in the month of November.

Further below are some trainer angles for your consideration at the venue.

Please note: Profit and Loss figures (P/L) is based on level stakes betting of one Euro per bet to SP.

Trainer: P Bowen

Course: Aintree

Race Type: National Hunt flat race.

Bets: 22 Wins: 7 Strike Rate: 31.82% P/L+46.00

Additional note; Profits can be increased further or should I say losses reduced if focusing on all the yards runners that have raced four times or less prior to taking an engagement at this venue. It is also worth noting that the trainer has some success in Non-Handicap races over hurdles at the track but from a much smaller sample.

Trainer: C Tizzard

Course: Aintree

Race Type: Handicap Chase (Not novice in status)

Bets: 38 Wins: 6 Strike Rate: 15.79% P/L+63.50

Additional note; Although the win strike rate is modest, the overall profit return is decent and the stable have quite a few big price placed runners as well, so worth bearing in mind if you like betting each way.  To cut down on losing bets stick to races from two miles to three miles one furlongs, as there were no winning bets beyond this distance.
