Compact, user friendly racecourse with lovely views of the sea. On the day of our visit the racing was being televised, a good opportunity to showcase this lovely venue.

I like the smaller racecourses because it is easy to get round the complex and see more than the race, such as the parade ring/winner's enclosure. It also means that you rarely have to queue to get a bet on, buy a drink etc, especially...More
