Chester is basically falling apart and the number of non-runners there since I first put pen to paper now numbers 21 and it’s not worth risking a bean there.
Ascot has seen six pulled out, Nottingham has lost eight and Ripon just the four.
The problem is, the rain.
I’m offering up this as today’s free rated race and expect a top rated winner. Nobody will get rich off it but if you make a profit of £2.50, why not join our weekend club?
I have 13 rated races tomorrow, including the Victoria Cup, a 29 runner cavalry charge but, I’m hoping we manage to extract a similar result to that 22 runner handicap at Newmarket last Sunday!
