Central heating problems at 'Brown Towers' means that it is very frosty at the moment - and that is just Cheryls reaction to being without a functioning boiler!! We've been 'off' since late last week, and it is now getting a bit boring huddled around an electric fire and putting on coats to go upstairs!! Apart from these obvious reasons for needing a thaw - the current weather looks like playing havoc with the Boxing Day cards if it doesn't warm up. Ogee should go to Kempton if it warms up, and I think that Bobby has a good chance at Huntingdon if it beats the freeze (and he stands up) The Raceform Update fancy his chances today, saying that 'the way he was travelling in a decent Novices Handicap at Newbury before falling suggests that he will be a better chaser.' 'And with less emphasis on his jumping in this grade should have a big chance on ground, and over a trip that should suit.' Let's hope it warms up! A LOT!!
