ATR Uttoxeter Racecourse Feature
Perfect for chase and hurdle meetings....
Uttoxeter is a left-handed oval shaped course of one mile two and a half furlongs in distance per circuit.
The back ‘straight’ has a dog-leg to the right and is undulating as it rises over Clump Hill. The course continues with a downhill run around the far bend into the home straight.
The home straight, of four furlongs, is flat and galloping ensures fair competitive finishes to most races including the staying chases of which the feature is the Midlands Grand National in March.
There are eight fences per circuit; four in the back straight and four in the home straight. The third last in the home straight is an open-ditch which is jumped at least twice in each race.
The hurdle course tends to benefit from better ground conditions throughout the season and runs to the inner of the steeple chase course. There are five flights of hurdles on each circuit (plus one in the 2 mile chute) with a minimum of eight flights jumped in each race.
