Newmarket - July

The Newmarket July Course is used during the summer and is more relaxed than the Rowley Mile Course. A feature of the summer evenings are the Newmarket Nights, where post racing entertainment is provided by some big name artists and these frequently sell out well in advance, so advance booking is strongly recommended.

Racing is of a high quality with the highlight being the July Meeting.

Course Characteristics:

The July course is a boomerang shape with a right handed dog-leg 1¼ miles from the finish. Generally flat with a slight rise two furlongs out. Races of 1m 2f and longer involve a right handed dog leg.

A very fair, wide course, galloping horses are favoured.
