3 days 20 hours and 7 minutes lol.
I’m looking forward to the start of the flat already to be honest I see it as an exciting year in prospect but we have Cheltenham and Aintree first and Chelts dominates my thoughts at the moment.
The worst period is after Aintree and before the Guineas you don’t half get some dross then. It’s not so bad this year but last year was awful with the "highlight" being Channel 4’s Kempton all weather coverage. :(
I still have a vivid picture of Derek Thompson’s shocked expression when one of the flat jockeys told him he prefered the turf to all weather.
"Why"? said Thommo. I came so close to sending him an approximate five page essay.
