    Dunstall Park undertook further redevelopments Copu Our Bets Review in 2004 when the decision was made by the owners, Arena Leisure, to replace both the fibresand and turf tracks with one single polytrack surface. Since then racing at Wolverhampton racecourse has consisted purely of all-weather races. The fixture list has grown significantly since 2004 and Wolverhampton is the busiest racecourse in England holding more than 60 evening meetings in the year and more than 100 altogether.


    The course itself is a left-handed, one mile oval circuit. It has additional chutes for 6 and 7 furlong distance races. The polytrack surface at Wolverhampton has similar properties to most of the racetracks in America. Jockeys and trainers who regularly go racing at Wolverhampton tend to agree that there is little, if any, draw bias at Dunstall Park. There are only 2 other polytrack surface racecourses in England, at Kempton and Lingfield. The fourth all-weather track at Southwell has fibresand which is a much slower surface. Wolverhampton racecourse is generally considered to be a slower track than those at either Kempton or Lingfield, so it tends to suit handy horses who are raced up with the pace.
