Flat
Uphill
Big Fences

1m5f triangular track with a very short uphill run in of 240y.
Is level and enables horses to gallop freely but is still testing with very stiff fences.
Novice hurdlers who have performed well here on the flat have to be noted.
When the ground is soft this is a true test of stamina.
Front running favourites do particularly well.

Favourites in long distance non handicap chases do very well but at poor prices.

Oppose favourites in hurdle races especially non handicaps.

THE jumps course.
There are three courses in one here.

Old Course - oval, 1m4f with a run in of 350y. A testing undulating track with stiff fences. The ability to stay is essential as the going can get heavy in wet weather.
New Course - oval, 1m5f with a run in of 220y. It is undulating with stiff fences and is a testing course which is uphill for the final half mile.
Park Course - Oval 1m5f with a 220y uphill run in. It is not as testing as the other two courses and is designed to put less strain on the horse's legs in the early and late season.

4f testing uphill finish means that horses must stay every yard at the trip to win.
Horses are laid out to win here so previous form is not much use.
Top weights struggle as their unexposed rivals come out on top.
Do not follow horses immediately after they have run here as it takes months to recover from the arduous 4f uphill finish.
