Ffos Las Racecourse

Ffos Las Racecourse

Key Characteristics

Ffos Las racecourse is a very new racecourse as it only opened in 2009. It is a dual purpose racecourse situated in South Wales, and is set in stunning surroundings.
Ffos Las is a left handed course of about a mile and a half, with a straight six furlong course which is very wide, with gentle undulations. The course looks to suit galloping horses, and probably most closely resembles Ayr racecourse in configuration.

 

Draw Bias & Pace Analysis

The course being wide, gently undulating with a long 5 furlong run in gives all horses plenty of chance to get into the fray. They tend to go down the middle of the track rather than racing against either rail. There is therefore little evidence of any draw bias.

When the going is good or faster it definitely favours prominent racers, and it is very hard to win with a hold up horse.
