Course Summary: Roughly triangular undulating galloping course; chalk soil normally gives good going even in the wettest weather, but can be firm in late season (watering is impossible). Bookies plentiful, car parking extensive and excellent (virtually go where you like); entrance and exit by long gravel track round camp avoiding armed guards. Generally good viewing from most parts though horses get very distant at far end of course. Has several early meetings and you need to wrap up well - no wind-break between here and Marlborough Downs almost 20 miles away.
Top Riders: R. Henderson 9, *G. Maundrell 8, R. Bliss & *Miss R. Green 7, W. Biddick, *R. Mahon & James Tudor 6
