An oval, left handed flat track measuring one mile and five furlongs, there are two straight six-furlong courses, one of which joins the round course four and a half furlongs out. The mile and a half start is on a spur past the winning post.
The galloping course suits the long striding individual, especially those who can stay.
It is also worth noting that when rain gets into the ground the stands side often rides faster and it is not unknown for jockeys to track over in search of success.
The hurdles course is situated inside the chase track and has sharp bends.
