Flat and National Hunt. A right-handed oval track of a mile and five furlongs in circumference, with an uphill run from the home turn of three and a half furlongs, and chutes for mile and a quarter and mile and three-quarters contests.
There is a separate straight course of five furlongs running diagonally across the centre. The National Hunt circuit runs mainly on the inside of the flat one, but crosses to the outside of it on the home turn at the famous Pond Fence, three from home.
There is an uphill run-in of 220 yards from the final obstacle. On the chase track there are three fences close together at the end of the back straight that are known as the ‘Railway fences’.
