Plus 9 and wet when driving in.

Leicester being abandoned yesterday was a bit of a bugger! Waterlogged hurdle track and good on the chase course.. Hard to explain unless you know that they water the hurdle course as it is also the flat course during the summer and they don’t water the chase course..

Watching ITV 4 racing at home showed how good Irish racing really is.. The two chases were cracking races to watch. Galvin and Galopin Des Champs

David Bass, Ciaran Gethings and Harrison Beswick were in for one lot this morning.. Racing starts so early at this time of year.

Norman Carter was here third lot to see his Samatian and his KBRS horse Voyburg.

Graham Potts was in to do his Tuesday visit on a Wednesday.
