  • Was not a big meeting so plenty of space to wander about. Decent selection of food and drink. The bookmakers inside the main area could be better but that is an issue for the more serious punters! Good view no matter where you were and there are activities for the kids too to keep them occupied. Entry was cheap too.
  • The infrastructure is just amazing! Outstanding buildings that connect with an efficient branch of Metro train which enhances the whole racing experience. Additionally, a beautiful skyline complements the spacious racing field!
