Yarmouth Racecourse is set beside the seaside and is a pleasant enough course to visit. With a one mile, free draining straight the racecourse is a ‘go to’ destination for many trainers, especially those based at nearby Newmarket, particularly to introduce their juvenile horses to racing. Longer distance races use the oval and the flat nature of the racecourse, located just 500 yards from the beach, ensures an equal chance for all runners with no track bias.
Draw Bias and Pace Analysis
While there is very little bias towards what sort of running style a horse has it is clear that over 7f there is a tendency for front runners to prevail (ranked 7/22) and because of the flat nature of the course it favours galloping types who will go on and do well at places like Newmarket, Newbury, York etc.
The only draw bias I can find is a slight bias towards high numbers (particularly the highest two) in 5f races.
