Chepstow – A Guide to UK Jump Racecourses

Chepstow Racecourses

Chepstow Racecourse is an undulating, testing left handed track. The jump circuit is about is about seventeen furlongs in length and is oval in shape. There is around a four and a half furlong run in from the final bend to the winning post. It is a dual purpose course hosting both flat and National Hunt racing but no doubt it is recognised as a grade one track for jump racing which is not the case for flat races that take place at the venue.

This is the number one track in Wales and the highlight race is the Coral Welsh National which takes place in December shortly after Christmas and is raced over three miles and five and a half furlongs. Although this race is considered a recognised Grand National trial it is a proper national event in its own right and steeped in history.

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: Chepstow

Race Type: Handicap Hurdle (Not Novice in status)

Bets: 53 Wins: 11 Strike Rate: 20.75% P/L+38.25

Additional note; To increase profits I would leave out the stable’s juvenile runners (aged four years old) as they have yet to win with one with quite a few attempts. Pay special attention to races over a distance of three miles, as that is where most of their, this is where the majority of winners come from, this alone has shown to increase the current win strike rate and at reasonable odds when taking the median average price into account.

Trainer: C Tizzzard

Course: Chepstow

Race Type: Maiden Hurdle

Bets: 39 Wins: 8 Strike Rate: 20.51% P/L+20.51


Additional note; One way to improve on the win strike rate is to only consider horses that have finished in the first seven places on its last outing, this will have saved you twelve losing bets and there were no winners that didn’t finish in the first seven places on its most recent run. A stable that is known for having horses that continue to run well once in form whilst once out of form tends to be the case for its next run.
