We have one runner today at Bangor on Dee.. only a few owners will be there today (30) which is sad..in fact none for Commodore Barry. For my thoughts on his chances please click here.

This is not good news...

Due to the ongoing challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Tattersalls Cheltenham will not be able to host its remaining 2020 fixtures at Chelteham Racecourse.

The Tattersalls Group, who are leading sponsors of the autumn point to points in Ireland and the UK, is pleased to offer alternative arrangements which have been formed to facilitate both its Irish and UK clientele at suitable times and locations.

Cheltenham November Sale (Ireland, Fairyhouse), Thursday 12th November.

Cheltenham December Sale (Newmarket, Park Paddocks), Thursday 3rd December.

Cheltenham December Sale (Ireland, Fairyhouse), Thursday 17th December.

The reintroduced Tattersalls Cheltenham October Sale, scheduled on Friday 23rd October, will no longer take place.

Goffs have fought back by announcing another sale.. all geared for point to pointer.. November 6 and no venue as yet announced.. It will be either in England or Ireland.. It looks like the two big auction houses are fighting for the point to point market.

Further news.. The Jockey Club have announced that they will be cutting back by 10% on staff numbers.
