Exeter

Located just to the south of Exeter, the course stages jump racing only.

It’s main meeting is the Haldon Gold Cup, often used for the seasonal bow of some of the Cheltenham Festival contenders, which takes place in November. Indeed Exeter is often used to give experience to up and coming stars, as a result the quality of racing is very good for, what is, a small track.

Course Characteristics:

It is a right handed (clockwise) course of about 2 miles. It is very undulating and the final 250 yards is uphill.

The configuration of the track does not suit galloping horses and it pays to look for course specialists.

The 300 yard uphill run-in is particularly trying and tight finishes are not unknown
