Yarmouth Racecourse is located at Caister-on-Sea on the Norfolk coast, just north of Great Yarmouth itself. It is a flat only track where crowds swell hugely in the summer months given the proximity of the course to the many coastal holiday campsites. The quality of maidens at the track is often above average, with the track close to Newmarket. The likes of Dubai Millennium, Ouija Board and Raven’s Pass have all broken their duck at the track before progressing to Group 1 winners.
Yarmouth Betting Tips
A left-handed oval of about a mile and three quarters round, the bends are tight but the straights are long and with undulations removed in recent track work, it is a very fair track. The run in on the round course is about 5 furlongs long, with a mile straight course also in action. The straight course marginally favours those who race close to the pace, winding up the speed from the front. The round course is very fair with both those who force the action and those held up winning.
Yarmouth Draw Bias
There is a marginal bias to those drawn high in sprints when the ground is on the quick side at Yarmouth racecourse, but the further up the straight course, the less the bias. Over a straight mile there is more than enough time for jockeys to take up the position that they want. Therefore, those looking for a draw related advantage are best concentrating on the 5 furlong races up the straight.
