Course Characteristics:

The course  is a tight oval circuit of 1 mile 1 furlong and it is left handed (anti-clockwise). The back straight is very much downhill and, correspondingly the home straight is very much uphill.

The jumps can be testing, coupled with a short run-in means that horses need to be agile and also possess sufficient stamina.

Previous course winners should be followed.
