Horse Racing Action at Ascot
One of the concerns of the old course was the sharp turn into the straight and it is considered that the new course will resolve this and there is a very wide track for the runners to be well spread out and offer all horses wherever they are drawn an equal opportunity to get to the post in front.
The Ascot course is left handed and one of the fairest in the country nevertheless with all the recent work it will take a while for it to settle down and it shall be interesting to watch over the next while to see if there are any interesting biases.
The Ascot track is used for both the flat and National Hunt seasons.
