FLAT: Down Royal is right-handed, has a circuit of just under two miles and is essentially square in shape. The course is undulating for much of the final mile, with the run-in slightly uphill. A chute for five-furlong races joins the main track after about a furlong, with races at that trip slightly on the turn until straightening just over a furlong out. Low numbers have a slight advantage at five and seven furlongs.
NATIONAL HUNT: Down Royal is a right-handed, undulating, square-shaped track with a circuit of one mile and seven furlongs. The narrower Hurdle Course, which also stages chases, sits on the outside of the General Track. There are ten fences to a circuit with four fences in the final four furlongs and a run-in of less than a furlong. The run-in for hurdle races is over a furlong and a half.
