Catterick is a great all-rounder, providing both flat and jumps racing throughout the year. The North Yorkshire Grand National takes place there in January and through the winter months, the course can get very testing ground wise.
Left-handed, undulating and fairly sharp, it suits nippy types and low draw numbers tend to be favoured in races up to a mile on the flat. That said, action can unfold out in the middle of the track when the summer ground softens. Flat trainer Richard Fahey does particularly well at the course, especially with his two-year-old juveniles. Over the jumps, that man Donald McCain is the best performing trainer at Catterick.
