Lingfield (AW) – A Guide to Flat Racecourses

Lingfield Racecourse

Lingfield All-Weather Racecourse is a sharp left handed track with some undulations. The course surface was formerly run on Equitrack which use to favour good early speed, much more so than it does now, but of course, the switch to a Polytrack surface in 2001 has addressed the issue of any pace bias, except for certain times of the year when a drastic change in temperature followed by persistent rain can occasionally bring the issue up again.

One useful tool to use as part of your form analysis is to look at the horse’s sire (Father) record on the surface at the track, this is not the main factor used by bookmakers when creating their book or “prices”. So any angle that can prove to be profitable and is not used by the majority of those that bet is an obvious advantage, especially as SP returns can, therefore, be more desirable as a consequence.

Here is a sample of some of those stallions that have a good record with their progeny on this course and surface. b
