Tipperary is a flat left-handed oval track with a small circuit of just under one mile and two furlongs, it is however albeit a tight track deemed to be a speed track galloping in nature. The chase course is on the inside of the hurdles track with six fences to a circuit and two in the home straight with a run-in of just shy of a furlong.
The track apart from it running the other way is similar to Cork in its attributes but also ground wise is a lot like Listowel and Sligo in that when the rain comes it can become very testing. The fences are easy enough and the 11% rate of fallers can mainly be put down to the speed at which they travel. The last point is backed up by the fact that although in the heavy going the standard times at the course are slow, overall both the hurdles and chase courses post some of the fastest times around.
