Flat: A right-handed pear shaped course measuring a mile and a half round. It is very undulating with a stiff three and a half furlong run-in, putting the emphasis very much on stamina. The six-furlong track begins on a chute and is on the turn throughout. High numbers are favoured, but in soft conditions jockeys tend to track over to the stands side in search of better ground.
National Hunt: Similar in confirmation to its flat counterpart, it provides a searching test and only those blessed with abundant stamina can expect to prevail.
