Left handed, very sharp, with a short run-in on both courses. The tightest jumps track in the country and, in theory, ideal for handy, front-running types as opposed to long-striding gallopers, though underfoot conditions are usually more testing than advertised and races often strongly-run, too, resulting in the emphasis being much more on stamina than might be expected. As a result, there is an extremely high proportion of casualties over fences for a minor track.
The tightest Jumps track in the country, which wouldn’t be ideal for lots of horses. It’s a great place for a tricky type who might have lost their way due to its unique square-shaped layout, which is only one mile in distance. When you do find a horse that is capable here, they tend to go on to win time and again, so look out for course and distance form over anything else. There is a great local crowd always in attendance, and the prizemoney is always excellent, which is a great incentive as it is a bit of a drive for most trainers and jockeys.
