KNOWN as the “M62 track” for its proximity to the motorway, Pontefract races is one of the most popular tracks in the north. It hosts Flat racing throughout the summer months and there are four Listed contests including the Pontefract Castle Stakes.

Other notable races include the Pipalong Stakes for fillies and mares, the Pomfret Stakes over a mile and the Silver Tankard Stakes for two year olds.

Pontefract races is left handed with a stiff, uphill finish that can catch out horses with dodgy stamina.

Top punting tip: Horses drawn low have a big advantage in sprints over 5f and 6f
