FLAT: The Leicester round course is a right-handed, oval track, about a mile and three quarters in extent, with a run-in of four and a half furlongs. The straight course, on which all races of up to seven furlongs are run, is mainly downhill to halfway, then rises gradually for over two furlongs, finishing on the level. Although the track is galloping and poses a test of stamina, prominent racers out-perform those that race further back at races up to 1m.

NATIONAL HUNT: Right handed, rather undulating with a gradual uphill finish of around three furlongs. Hurdle races run on Flat course and almost invariably more testing as a result, that track having been watered during the summer, though races are often steadily run, resulting in the field still being well bunched early in the straight. There is significant evidence to suggest that the obstacles are stiffer than used to be the case. There tends to be an advantage in taking a wide route on the hurdles course when the going is testing.
