Moving the AW track to Newmarket, could mean that around 120 AW meetings will be within an hours’ drive of Newmarket; around 30 to 40 per cent of the AW meetings to Newmarket remedy this issue? Or are the south-west based trainers in such great numbers because it is so suitable for their access? If looking at the tables showing use of Lingfield and Wolverhampton over the tenyear period, still Newmarket trainers are not dominant AW users. It is only really Chelmsford that is dominated by Newmarket trainers. So is another course required in this location? And, even if looking at Turf course usage, aside from Newmarket itself, Newmarketbased trainers do not dominate by numerically.

Marco Botti: is the greatest user numerically of Kempton from the Newmarket training ranks

Sats from Racing Post Not comprehensive, but an outline list of use of Kempton by variety of types of trainers based in Newmarket – large stables, smaller yeard, dual-purpose, long standing and newer names

3.iii. Moving the AW track to Newmarket, could mean that approximately 120 AW meetings will be within an hours’ drive of Newmarket; around 30 to 40 per cent of the AW meetings will be in essentially the Newmarket locality. As there are only around 60-70 trainers in Suffolk (compared to 260, alongside their owners, in the regions) and Newmarket is not heaviest users of the AW, does this make sense from an industry perspective? If taking Lambourn as a base from which to identify the whole south-west region, no AW track will be within two hours’ drive of the valley, with only Lingfield being less than two and a half hours away. It means that 80 per cent of the AW meetings will be a significant drive from Lambourn and the south-west. While obviously a Newmarket AW would continue to be used by all trainers, it could have significant changes to economics of training through the regions of Britain, and will clearly push more trainers to need to be based in Newmarket. Is that good thing? Just how many more trainers can Newmarket accommodate
