Shortly afterwards ALS Contracts arrived on site to commence work on the pitch. They used a koro to remove the existing grass, verti-drained the surface then top dressed it before finally seeding the exposed ground to allow fresh new grass to grow.

Racecourse groundsman Paul Chaloner is delighted with the progress made in good time by ALS who also completed work on the pitch last pre-season and overhauled our training pitches at Nine Acres. 

Below is a video from our YouTube channel where ALS are undertaking the koro work: 

And we have a gallery where you can see the progress made:
