Tips for Lingfield Races
Located in Surrey, Lingfield was the UK’s first All-Weather track as it was opened in 1989. The Equitrack surface was replaced by Polytrack in 2001 and then relaid in 2012. It’s one of the busiest tracks in the country with racing taking place all year round.
Surface: Along with Kempton Park and Chelmsford City, Lingfield uses a Polytrack surface which deals very well with cold weather and as it is a fairly unique surface, previous experience is a plus for our tips.
Course: It is a very sharp track and some of the bends are very tight so well-balanced horses do well round here. It’s not unusual for horses to pick up a head of steam and come flying from the back of the pack.
Draw Bias: There is a slight advantage to be drawn low in 5 and 6 furlong races as there is a bend soon after the start, but it’s not major.
Feature Meeting: The All-Weather Championships take place on Good Friday which we have full analysis and tips for. The whole day is the culmination of the winter season on the artificial surfaces.
