Plus 12 and dry when driving in

Racing weekends at Cheltenham mean owners who go racing often call in to see their horses if passing. Always good to see them

Nikki Heath and Les Garside-Beattie called in second lot to see their horse Billy Elliott while Rolf Johnson called in for a first visit to Thorndale. All three stayed for breakfast.

Third lot lot Mark and Melinda Laws called in to see their horses Battle Dust and Ben Arthur and then saw their KBRP horse Knockanrwawley. Peter Woodhall also called in to see his two KBRP horses Chateau Robin and Knockanrawley.

Kathy and Phil Moorby called in to see Phil's horse Patsys Castle.. PC runs at Cheltenham.

We have four runners today at two meetings. Un Ace and Patsys Castle run at Cheltenham while Desaray and Aliandy run at Doncaster. For my thoughts on their chances please click here.
