(Going Stick: Chase 7.4; Hurdle 7.2 on Tuesday at 10:00)
Mainly fine and dry with some sunny spells; max temp 16C.
Watered. We applied 20mm of water from the start of
the back straight to the winning post over the last week to
maintain the current going description.
The entire track was de-compacted post our last jump fixture on
All Weather Track
Our state of the art All Weather polytrack is right-handed with two bends. It runs on the inside of the jump track. Click here to download a map of the All Weather Track.
The Going description for the All Weather track is described as Standard. This equates to the Good side of Good to Firm. The polytrack, which has the same characteristics as turf, provides a consistent surface on which horses can perform to their maximum ability.
Although polytrack can be manipulated to reflect Good to Soft, Good or Good to Firm ground, the Jockey Club directive for The Going on polytrack is a mixture of Good to Firm and Good – which equates to Standard. This is achieved first by cultivating (power harrowing) the polytrack to a depth of 100mm, followed by a pass with a Gallopmaster (spiral rollers) which replenishes the surface.
Our Jump track is right handed with the hurdle course on the outside, Grandstand side. Click here to download a map of the Jump track.
