Yarmouth – A Guide To Flat Racecourses

Yarmouth Racecourse

Yarmouth Racecourse is a galloping, flat left handed track. It is an oval shaped course where the circuit is just over thirteen furlongs in circumference and has been listed as a grade three venue. There is one pattern race that takes place per season, the John Musker Fillies Stakes which is a listed event run over ten furlongs in September and is for fillies aged three years and older.

The track is generally considered a fair track being generally flat throughout and more of the established trainers based in Newmarket do like to bring their juveniles here for racecourse experience.

There isn’t usually a draw bias over the straight course when the ground is riding quick but it’s still worth monitoring on occasions due to the course’s watering policy, which sometimes can see the ground being overwatered, according to my personal records.

On occasions, I have noted there has been a pace bias and as a consequence, I tend to wait for at least the first couple of races to have been run before drawing any firm conclusions one way or the other.

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

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

Course: Yarmouth

Trainer: William Jarvis

Race Type: 4yo+ Handicap race.

Bets: 52 Wins: 10 Strike Rate: 19.23% P/L+45.25

Additional notes; All the winners coming from this yard were aged between three and four, interestingly a better strike rate occurred with fillies, which represented 35 % of all their winners in these circumstances, although it should also be noted that backing colts or geldings still proved profitable just to a lesser degree.

Course: Yarmouth

Trainer: Chris Wall

Race Type: 4yo+ Handicap race.

Bets: 31 Wins: 11 Strike Rate: 35.48% P/L+30.68

Additional Notes; I would concentrate on the yards runners that are aged four years old, as this would still retain all the winners in this situation, ie; eleven winners but it brings the win strike rate up to 50% as there were ten losers outside the age of four.
