Facts To Consider Before Backing Horses At Epsom Racecourse

Here are some statistics associated with Epsom Racecourse:

  • Epsom Downs is home to two classics, the Oaks and the Derby, which run on consecutive days in June.
  • Epsom stages around 11 race days a season, including a few Thursday evenings during the summer.
  • The two-day Derby meeting in early June also features the Coronation Cup, a Group 1 race for older middle-distance horses. In total, Epsom has 5 Group races and 2 Listed races.
  • Epsom is a flat racing-only course.
  • Racing TV and ITV (Oaks and Derby meeting) are the TV channels covering racing at Epsom.
  • Bookmaker streaming services are available from Paddy Power, Betfair, and William Hill.
  • Epsom Downs is a left-handed course with twelve furlongs undulating with a downhill turn into the home straight, with a left camber towards the far rail.
  • The address of Epsom Downs Racecourse is Epsom Downs, Epsom KT18 5LQ, and the telephone number is 01372 726311.
  • Epsom Derby Meeting: There are fourteen races during the Derby Meeting, with seven races on each day of the two-day meeting.
  • The undulating one-mile and four-furlong distance is a true test for a middle-distance thoroughbred requiring all the attributes, balance, speed, and stamina.
  • Results can be unpredictable, especially with horses visiting Epsom for the first time, encountering the sharp bends, the switchback course turns left and right, undulations uphill and downhill, and in the final furlong cambers to the inside rail.
  • To get victories over distances greater than a mile at Epsom, you need a balanced horse who can handle the undulations and quirks of Epsom.
  • The top Irish jockeys who come to England for the Group races seem to study the track, knowing it has quirks, and they reap the benefits. Of the English-based jockeys, Frankie Dettori seems to have the skill to control his mount and wait for the right moment at Epsom. Silvestre De Sousa is an excellent judge of pace from the front and enjoys particular success in getting the fractions right at Epsom, and Charlie Bishop also rides the track well.
  • Unlike most other courses, the five-furlong track is the fastest sprint track in the UK, as the course is downhill. Sprinters who run well in this race are worth following as the season progresses.
  • Epsom Draw Bias: If you want the most profitable stall at Epsom, you need to look at races over 7f and focus on stall 4, as this has produced an LSP of +35.66 over the last five years.
  • For the least profitable stall at Epsom, you need to look at races over 1m½f and focus on stall 4, which has produced an LSP of -44.19 over the last five years.
  • Draws can be much more important over shorter trips in which runners do not have time to find their position during the race, meaning the draw is probably more important than the races over longer distances.
  • Sprints (5f to 7½f) and middle distance (1m2f to 1m5½f) races at Epsom have different draw biases, with the most profitable.
