The course

The current racecourse was the brainchild of Johnny Wills, John Phillips and Charlie Brooks and is relatively new, having moved from Heythrop to Cocklebarrow back in 2014.  Between them, they built the course from scratch. The fences are inviting and well positioned/sited and it is now one of the very best tracks in the country, renowned for its fantastic drainage and excellent viewing from the infamous mound stand.

The course runs left handed and is wide and rectangular in shape with a distance of about 1m2f with minor undulations, built on site of former wheat fields. It is quick-draining Cotswold brash soil which is likely to ensure the surface doesn't become too testing, perfect for an early season outing.  Portable fences are all metal-framed, well built and up to size.
