It’s the best all weather course we have. Who wants another jumps course. It’s a dying sport of the future anyway.
That’s like saying Liverpool are the best football team on Merseyside. They may be, but doesn’t mean they are any good.
"All weather" racing should only be scheduled when turf racing is not possible, not all year round. There is still the frightening possibility of the return of Great Leighs next year – God help us all!
Much prefer the NH action. Lingfield is a very nice jumps course, would hate it to go the same way as Windsor, Nottingham and Wolverhampton.
....and you've got to look a long way back for anything else.

I’m really hoping that Great Leighs does reopen next year. I didn’t manage to get there before it closed abruptly as I was hoping they would improve the viewing and the position of the temporary grandstand so that I might actually see something.
Have been to every other racecourse, including Ffos Las, so still feel that, although I missed out on Great Leighs, I might get another chance.
