Course Characteristics:

Lingfield has three courses in one. There is an all weather (polytrack) course 1¼ miles in diameter. There is a triangular grass circuit outside the polytrack used for both flat and jump racing, which is 1 mile 3½ furlongs round and there is a spur on the grass track allowing straight races of up to 7½ furlongs.

The sprint course is almost as fast as Epsom’s and is suited by runners who can get away quickly and are well balanced.

Draw Advantage: On the turf straight course high numbers have a distinct advantage, especially if the stalls are on the stands side. However when the going is soft or worse the balance switches to the far side.
