National Hunt and Jump course characteristics

National Hunt Courses

Of course the draw is not relevant in jump racing, however their is great value in studying the various characteristics of each of the jump racecourses. By gaining an understanding of each of the racecourses you can form a view as to which types of horses will be suited by a particular course.

Also when looking at form you can see which form is most relevant. For instance a horse which has good form at a flat track such as Huntingdon, is unlikely to reproduce such form on the undulations of Towcester.

Our site gives a detailed explanation of each of the National Hunt racecourses. What the characteristics of the course are, how hard are the fences, and very importantly which racecourses are similar and therefore we can expect form to be repeated.
