Clonmel Course Overview
Clonmel is used throughout the entirety of the racing season. This means that you can expect to see meetings in the cold, dark winters and the boiling hot summers – Clonmel caters for it all. In fact, the course is the only one in Tipperary to be used all year round.
The flat course is a short, right-handed track that is oval-shaped, as you will notice when watching the Clonmel races live stream. The course is just ten furlongs in left, meaning that for the longer flat races the horses must complete over a full lap of the course.
The bends on the course are open and wide with no real stall bias. The only real section that, purposefully, causes competitors difficulty is the section of downhill course which leads on to the uphill straight.
The quick change in steepness can catch a lot of horses and jockeys off-guard, with those overcommitting on the downhill section often quickly dropping off on the run to the line. Therefore, the track often favours those that can travel on the bit well.
It’s also well-suited to those that burn through energy quickly often have nothing left for the final furlong and can cause traffic behind them as their speed declines.
The Clonmel Racecourse National Hunt circuit is most definitely more well-recognised in comparison to its flat track.
Just like the flat course, the National Hunt is oval-shaped and relatively short in comparison to other courses. The track is very ‘up and down’, with there being a lack of flat patches so those who are less tough and gritty can be seen to struggle.
Due to how dips in the course, the winter months where the weather is often worse can lead the track to become quite heavy and boggy as the water fails to drain. The hills and downward slopes also make it incredibly difficult for horses caught in behind to make up any ground, especially if a front runner has got a break on the pack.
The sharpness of the drop on the run to the home straight is a major talking point amongst jockeys, also.
The riders have to decide how they will play their hand. That is, whether to hope they have enough left in the tank to roll along or to try and push on and hope they can squeeze the very most out of their horse to stay ahead.
Viewing at Clonmel Racecourse
The Clonmel racecourse itself is adored by Irish racing fans. Being accessible by train, coach and bus, the track is often well-attended and the stands packed out.
However, with so many visitors attending each meeting, some would assume that good views of the track are hard to come by.
However, it is very much the opposite case – a sweeping view of much of the course is visible from the entire concourse. The wall of trees and shrubs surrounding the course brings the focus purely on the high-quality racing that Clonmel has to offer.
Clonmel Race Calendar Highlights
The most significant race in the Clonmel Racecourse calendar is certainly the Clonmel Oil Chase. The steeplechase race takes place in November and is open for horses of four years old and older.
The race is two miles and four furlongs long which, given the likely conditions for an Irish meeting in November, can be a bit of a mud bath. However, the race does attract some very likeable types, and, in the past, some significant faces have featured (and in some cases won) in the race.
In 2019, the race was won by Douvan for Willie Mullins and Paul Townsend. The French gelding had a good record in grade one and two races, which led to the now-ten-year-old going off at 4/5 odds.
For those who don’t understand race betting or are new to it, if you put €/£5 on him to win then you would get £9 back, which includes the initial €/£5 you placed.
The race itself lacked some pace from the front and Douvan took full advantage of that, coasting into the lead. He then piled the pressure on before the third-last, giving him enough breathing room to push on and secure a nine-and-a-half length victory.
