The flat course at Ascot is a right-handed course that includes a straight mile and the Old Mile course, which joins the round course at the famous Swinley Bottom entrance. Due to its short run in, if not racing on the straight mile, runners leading from the front tend to have a strong chance. However, given the recent developments to the course, the going conditions can vary from day to day.
Ascot's National Hunt Course
The National Hunt Course is also run right-handed, and thanks to the drainage now available on the course, it offers betting running conditions than previously. The fences on the far side of the track can prove the most tricky, but if horses are front runners in small fields, they may not be caught.
