The course is a very popular spot for horse racing in the north of England. The course is undulating which tests the horses for stamina and ability to stay. Stayers tend to do well on the course with an uphill finish to the winning post making it great to watch. With the course being so tricky to master, course specialists always seem to come out on top at Pontefract. Knowing how the ground is especially on wet days is key to success. When the ground is heavy its best suited to be drawn higher or at least move higher to the better ground.
There isn’t a huge draw bias but as stated it’s best to be drawn higher on wet days when the ground is considerably heavy. On good days it’s a pretty fair course with the strongest horse and popular course jockey often taking home the prize money.
