Course Characteristics:

The course is a 1 mile straight course (with a slight dog-leg) with a loop to allow running of races over longer distances, which sometimes results in races starting with the runners running the “wrong way” down the home straight.

The course suits resolute horses and runners on the loop need to be agile to take the sharp turn.

Draw advantage: In races up to a mile high numbers are favoured if the stalls are stands side or centre course, but low numbers are favoured if the stalls are on the far side. (was the opposite way round prior to the 2011 season when the stall numbering system changed)
