Bangor – A Guide to UK Jump Racecourses

Bangor Racecourses

Bangor Racecourse is a tight, flat, left handed track. It is triangular in shape and this jump circuit is around a mile and a half furlongs in circumference. It has a long run in not just from the final bend to the winning post but also from three out to the penultimate obstacle.

One interesting fact about this course is that it has no grandstand for spectators, not too sure there are any other courses in the UK that can say the same.

It’s a slightly peculiar course in that despite its sharp characteristics with tight turns which can favour horses that like to race prominently, it still usually requires a horse that has stamina due to the long run in on various segments of the course and this trait requirement becomes more paramount in staying races.


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: H Daly

Course: Bangor

Race Type: Handicap Hurdle (Not Novice in Status)

Bets: 22 Wins: 7 Strike Rate: 31.82% P/L+30.25

Additional note; Profits can be increased further or should I say losses reduced if focusing on all the yards runners that are aged between five and seven. The yard tends to win with progressive types at the course, hence, this specific age bracket range is fairly important, in fact, all losers from the stable have come outside this age group.

Trainer: A King

Course: Bangor

Race Type: Handicap Chase (Not Novice in status)

Bets: 35  Wins: 10 Strike Rate: 28.57% P/L+34.41


Additional note; Alan King’s winners at the course tend to start in earnest during the Jump season proper, so focusing on all his runners from the month of November all the way through to May is the way forward. He hasn’t had a winner in these specific circumstances from the month of June to September, which isn’t surprising as the majority of those runners tend to have much less ability that is associated with the yard
