FLAT: Ffos Las is a left-handed track and essentially galloping in nature. Approximately a mile and a half in extent, the course is very flat and fair, with a long home straight, including an extension to enable a straight track for races over five and six furlongs.
NATIONAL HUNT: A wide, galloping, left-handed circuit of 1½ miles, with a straight of just over 4f. It has no undulations but a very slight rise over the course of the back straight and the opposite in the home straight. There are short run-ins for both hurdles and chases, though it is in essence a fair track, with the chase course providing a good test of jumping. Field sizes tend to be on the small side. The ground rides mostly on the soft side of good and can be extremely gruelling at its worst, leading to many an attritional race. The course has had problems caused by low sun, resulting in the removal of several flights in hurdles races.
This is the newest track in the UK, having been purpose-built from scratch, it’s designed to be a fair and genuine test for all. It’s essentially a galloping track that’s about a mile and a half around. The fences are well positioned and are well made. The biggest thing here is that it lies in one of the wettest parts of the country, so conditions get very extreme in the winter and heavy ground specialists tend to excel here. The hurdles track can often be at risk of low sun up the home straight and tend to get omitted at certain times of the year. But when conditions are good, it’s an awesome track to ride around.
