Tips for Southwell Races
Situated in Nottinghamshire, Southwell has both an All-Weather flat track as well as a turf National Hunt track. Therefore it’s a very busy racecourse and the jump racing takes place throughout the year in the summer and also the winter months.
Course: The track is a left-handed oval of around a mile. It is quite flat and tight which in the summer months when the ground is quicker, favours speedy types. The run-in is just under a furlong from the final flight so we wants our tips to be right there at the last.
We always watch out for Dan Skelton horses for our tips at Southwell as he’s the top trainer at the track over the past 5 seasons. Also when other big stables send runners here it’s very noteworthy, with Paul Nicholls and Nicky Henderson having 60% and 28% strike rates in that same 5 year time period.
