Why we have so many Friday undercards in England when there appear to be more benefits of having the two day meetings over the weekend ?
Friday racing often cuts the ground up, which can be a problem in the winter.
Courses would surely be better attended on a Sunday than a Friday, and Sunday racing in England is generally poor in quality.
Also, why are there so few days with flat and NH racing on the same card ? Surely Kempton, Lingfield and Southwell have the facilities – and if not why not ?
I think a split card would increase the quality and interest – many of these all weather cards or low grade midweek jumps meetings are just bookie fodder. Cut the crap, increase the quality.
