Didn't We Have a Lovely Time?....
....The day we went to Bangor!! Wrong Bangor, but it still works! Although Stuart may disagree when he gets there as it looks very much as if he will be getting a wet shirt. Carolina Wren will not worry about the rain, and the Racing Post are quite complimentary about her chances (she is the most tipped outsider of the day). As mentioned yesterday - a clear round and for her to enjoy herself are the main aims of today, so a watching brief is probably best. More gallop surface arrived yesterday - so that part of the equation is getting there now. Hopefully by Friday evening it will be filled in completely, and then things can return to normal. Guest Of Honours run in Fontwell is still very much all systems go, and I will be getting in touch with everyone tomorrow to confirm his declaration, and jockey booking. If anyone will be unavailable to talk tomorrow morning from 10.00am - but would like badges - please let me know today so that I can get them sorted.
