Timetobenefit found the ground not to her liking on Sunday and we will now wait for it to dry up a bit and give her the conditions she needs to take advantage of her handicap mark.
We have made an entry for Iron Horse at Hereford at the weekend but the ground for most of the string is still not suitable.
Delighted to have the opportunity to walk the Cheltenham track yesterday afternoon with owners Colin and Gwenda Pocock – who purchased the prize at our Adlestrop Club Golf Day last year. Assistant Head Groundsman, Alastair King – gave us a very informative walk of the track and we will all be surprised if the ground is not good to soft by next week if the forecast is correct.
Thank you to everyone who attended our Cheltenham Preview last night. Hopefully everyone came away much the wiser thanks to a very informative panel of Sam Twiston-Davies, John Francome, Simon Clare, Phil Smith and Gordon Clarkson.
Thanks to Corals, once again we have charity bets in aid of Prostate Cancer UK. Hopefully they will raise some money for the great cause:
