Following 26 millimetres of rain since racing yesterday, and with a few false patches of ground which means the ability to race may be marginal, an inspection has been called for 12.45pm.
We are also looking at options to re-align the rail to avoid these areas.
And so it goes.
Firm Tuesday. Heavy Friday. As Dad always says when I lament the vagaries of horse racing – bad trips, bad weather, bad luck – “Son, it’s the game we play.”
Yes, it’s the game we play. Outdoors with living, breathing, fallable creatures. Beholden to nature. Erratic to the core.
Good luck at Royal Ascot – if it passes the inspection.
