Facts To Consider Before Backing Horses At Cartmel Racecourse

Here are some statistics associated with Cartmel Racecourse:

  • Cartmel Racecourse is a National Hunt-only course located in the heart of the Lake District in Cumbria.
  • The track is left-handed, undulating, and features a very tight turn, with a slightly downhill finish, including an extraordinarily long run from the last fence in chases.
  • The feature races at Cartmel are the Cumbria Crystal, a valuable hurdle at the July meeting, and the Grand Veterans Handicap Chase at the same time of year.
  • The August meeting holds the other two important races, The Cavendish Cup Chase and the Cartmel Cup over hurdles.
  • Cartmel has a short racing season, with just 9 days of racing spread over 4 meetings each year, some of which now have live music afterwards.
  • Crowds often exceed 20,000, a figure beat only by Aintree and Cheltenham on the National Hunt circuit.
  • The Cartmel course is just a mile in circumference and the tight turn into the ‘home’ straight accounts for about 75-80% of the transition from the ‘back’ straight to the ‘home’.
  • The chase course has just 6 fences, of which the 4 along the main straight also come close together and can cause issues for untidy jumpers on the last circuit when the pace tends to pick up.
  •  According to these statistics, the most successful outright favourite at Cartmel is non-handicap chasers, with a win percentage of 59% and an LSP of +3.76.
  • The least successful outright favourite at Cartmel is handicap hurdles, with a win percentage of 28% and an LSP of -16.31.
  • When betting at Cartmel, it should be noted that big, galloping types may struggle on this tight track, particularly any that jump to the right or prefer to race right-handed.
  • Being up with the pace can be an advantage, but the narrow track keeps field sizes down to manageable levels most of the time.
  • The fences are not too severe, but their grouping means a higher premium on jumping ability than would otherwise be the case.
