Chepstow Racecourse Track
Stages racing under both codes. The Flat circuit is a left-handed oval of around two miles, with some quite severe undulations. All races up to a mile are run on the straight course which provides quite a stiff test. On the round course, the run-in is five furlongs and this is not an ideal place for front runners. On the straight course, high numbers have a distinct advantage when the stalls are on the stands side, especially on soft ground.
The jumps circuit has a run-in of 240 yards, but the undulations make this a less testing circuit and front runners have a fair record. The fences are quite stiff, and the ground can become very heavy in winter.
