FLAT: A figure of eight shape, twelve and a half furlongs in extent. Races around a mile and a half see both left and right-handed turns, but in races below that distance, only right-handed turns are met. Though perfectly flat throughout, the track is sharp in character. However due to the length of the run-in (nearly five furlongs), galloping sorts aren't inconvenienced. When the going is very testing field tend to track across to the far side, although it is a greater factor at sprint trips.
NATIONAL HUNT: Windsor is laid out in a figure-of-eight pattern, the larger upper loop containing seven fences and the lower loop two fences. Three-mile chases take in almost two circuits. The track is flat, and sharp in nature. Racing over jumps was discontinued at Windsor in 1998 but is due to resume as a replacement venue for some Ascot fixtures in 2004/5.
