The course itself is a right handed oval with fast, easy bends. There are nine fences to a circuit or which one used to be a water jump until it was filled in in 2008. The circuit is fast and flat and measures 1 mile and 4 furlongs in distance.

A fast course, this venue prefers horses with speed over stamina.
