The courses are beautifully built by the Willis Brothers and combine technical fences with a good galloping track which has no tight twists or turns.  They run on permanent pasture over deceptively undulating ground, so horses need to be fit.  This year we have a new course designer in Helen West, who is hoping to put many new ideas into the course and possibly reverse some of it.  Overall, all four tracks are a fair test at their respective level.
