Back From The Borders!


Following on from the Grand National meeting at Aintree, I spent a couple of enjoyable days up in Ayr for the Scottish equivalent at the weekend.  We only had a handful of runners at the meetings, but I was generally pleased with how things went – I thought that Swing Bowler ran an excellent race when a close fourth in the Scottish Champion Hurdle on Saturday.  She was running from 9lbs out of the weights so this was a very good effort – she certainly deserves to win a nice prize and could be the type for Haydock’s Swinton Hurdle.  Read more...

It's Good Friday and for the first time we will be able to go racing.  There is no action over the jumps, although there is an extremely valuable fixture on the all-weather at Lingfield and a turf card at Musselburgh.  Does racing on Good Friday make any difference?  I guess we will see if the £1million prize money up for grabs draws a big crowd - I certainly hope so for the organisers sake, otherwise it will be one large (and expensive) damp squib.  I would imagine the biggest crowd of the day will be in Lambourn where they are hosting their annual Open Day.  Crowds of around 10,000 are expected to show up, so if flat racing is not your thing why not check out the Open Day?
