The undulating Corbeagh House, a new course unveiled in 2014, can provide a real test of stamina, with a notable climb to the home straight testing the runners around this course which is just under one mile around.

The runners begin alongside the second-last obstacle, the first of two fences positioned in the home straight, and face a short run to the first obstacle, before passing the winning post. There is a very long run on the level, as they do not jump another fence until facing a line of three in the back straight.

Shortly after passing the winning post, the track begins a steady drop, before the decline steepens as they turn right-handed to run along the side of the course. After the drop levels out, they then turn right once again where there is a line of three fences facing them. The three obstacles are quite evenly spaced out.

Almost immediately after jumping the final of that trio, they turn quickly right-handed to begin a very steep ascent. The climb briefly levels out midway along the run between the back and home straights, before intensifying once again, on the rise around the home bend.

The climb continues to a lesser extent up the home straight, where there is a short run to the penultimate fence, with another reasonably short run to the last, and a short run-in.

Cogryhill and Carrig Cathal, who won the first two editions of the four-year-old maiden at the course in 2014 and 2015, are both now multiple track winners.


Corbeagh House is an undulating right-handed track where the ground can get pretty soft and so it suits a horse that stays very well.

It would be a place that you ride to get home, as it has a stiff finish from the second-last fence up the hill and into the home straight where a lot can change. You would always want to ride it with that hill and the stiff finish in mind.
