Ballinrobe – A Guide To Irish Flat Racecourses

Ballinrobe Racecourse

Ballinrobe Racecourse is a sharp, oval right handed track and is dual purpose course hosting both Flat and Jump Racing. They hold less than ten meetings a year (Only five more meetings listed for this year) with the vast majority of those meetings taking place in the evening.  The circuit is just over an extended nine furlongs in length with around a two and a half furlong run in from the final bend.

A low draw can be very beneficial on fast ground, especially in races over shorter distances and good course form should be marked up when assessing the contenders.

I would also favour horses that like to race prominently, again the shorter the distance the more likely the contender becomes under consideration for betting purposes.

However,  one specific type of distance race that has shown to be profitable is races run over one mile and one furlong. Simply backing any horse that has already won twice at the track previously and racing over this distance would see a win strike rate of 33% and so far 50% to those that have won on the course three times previously before racing over this trip.

Further below are a couple of Trainer angles for your consideration.

Additional Notes; To improve profitability when following the stable’s runners at the track, I would suggest the following;

Back their runners that are in a single figure in price (suggest 8/1 or below) and best to ignore all the yards runners in races below the distance of seven furlongs. Any horse making their first career start should also be omitted from calculations.
