Racing on the fibresand returns to Southwell this afternoon, with an eight-race card to get stuck into.
Southwell - north-east of Nottingham, is one of only six racecourse in the UK to have an all-weather track and is the only one with a fibresand surface, which is a mixture of sand and wispy fibres.
The unique fibresand racing surface is quite deep, making the track a good test of stamina. Ability to stay the distance and fitness are therefore big advantages at Southwell.
The track also often features many of the most hardworking jockeys throughout the winter, as well as plenty of high-profile stars from time to time.
We have picked out three key points, to help master this tricky course.
