Tips for Kempton Races
Located close to London in Surrey, Kempton is well known for both it’s All Weather and National Hunt programs. It boasts a number of high quality races in both spheres throughout the year.
Courses: The All Weather course is actually made up of two separate courses; an inner course, for five furlong and one mile, two furlong races, and an outer course for others. Both courses are right handed ovals.
The National Hunt course is a flat, triangular circuit, with one tight bend and two longer ones. The run in after the last jump is just one furlong long, so our tips look for solid jumpers as a mistake can be very costly.
Draw Bias: It’s better to be drawn low over sprint distances at Kempton, due to the tight nature of the track.
Surface: Kempton uses a Polytrack surface, similar to most of the other All Weather tracks, and our tips favour horses with previous evidence of acting on the surface.
Feature Race: The stand out race of the year at Kempton is the King George VI Steeple Chase, a Grade 1 run over three miles. The second most prestigious chase in England, it is only surpassed by the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
