Huntingdon Betting Tips
Huntingdon races sees jockeys negotiate a tight, right-handed oval totalling 1 mile 4 furlongs in length. Being flat with easily negotiable bends, it’s a naturally fast track that lends itself to those who can tuck in behind to make a late move. Our Huntingdon tips will often include good horses off the flat that make their hurdles debut here. They choose to do so due to the track’s even surface and speedy nature. There are nine fences per circuit, with the open ditch in front of the stands providing a real spectacle for racegoers.
