FLAT: Downpatrick is a narrow, right-handed track of eleven furlongs. It is extremely undulating in nature and as a result, does not favour a long-striding horse. The short, uphill run-in is just one furlong in length but is a stiff one.
NATIONAL HUNT: Downpatrick is a narrow, right-handed track with a circuit of around eleven furlongs. This is not a track for a long-striding horse, given the numerous undulations and turns. There are six fences to a circuit of the chase course, with the last two close together before the uphill home straight of over a furlong.
