The elongated oval course now races in a left handed direction after major development 10 years ago. The track is over 1 mile and 7 furlongs with a long home straight which is a spectacle to see at the finish of every race. Most races start from far out with a strong pace and more often than not, horses from the back of the field often come past the front runners to go on and win a race. There have been many different views on this over the years and it’s definitely something we think about in our York racing tips.

When the ground is a bit softer a lower draw is best but it’s not a massive advantage with the home straight being long enough to make up ground from the back.
