TRACK GUIDE


DEREK O'CONNOR, RIDER

Stowlin is a great addition to the calendar and is a big open track. There is a tight turn into the second-last, so it is important to corner well around it. I find it tends to ride quite sharp and it suits to ride handily, as there is quite a lot of freewheeling around here. Finishes happen quite quickly from the fourth-last home, so you need a horse with a good cruising speed and a bit of toe.
