I really look forward to my visits to Southwell.I must say I do prefer the National Hunt racing,and remember the good old days before the All Weather track was put into place. The facilities are ideal and the course is very well spaced out.

Best course in England by far. I should know, after Glorious Goodwood and Ebor York. For friendliness and value for money, it beats them hands down. It might not attract the finest horses, but that is down to ignorant owners and trainers. They don't know...More
