Course - Flat:
Right-handed triangular circuit with a steady rise on the turn into the short home straight. There is a straight course of a mile which is testing in nature.
Course - Jump:
A right-handed track, around a mile-and-three-quarters round. The circuit is a galloping one with stiff fences and an uphill finish, which places a premium on stamina from the home turn. There is also a downhill run to Swinley Bottom.
By Road: The racecourse lies to the west of the town on the A329, and is easily accessible from the M3 (junction 3) or the M4 (junction 6). The car park adjoins the racecourse and Ascot Heath.
By Rail: Regular services run from Waterloo to Ascot station, which is located less than a mile from the racecourse.
By Air: London Heathrow is approximately 15 miles away. A helicopter landing facility is provided by prior arrangement.
