    Absolutely chucking it down in the North East of England – Sedgefield has just been abandoned for tomorrow.

    I doubt there would be too much likelihood of waterlogging at Musselburgh. The area missed a lot of the rain last week, and although it’s raining in Scotland today, the going was reported Good To Soft at the weekend and the course is on links sand dunes, so soaks up the rain very well.

    Current forecast is for the rain to die out this evening, a cold day tomorrow then rain tomorrow night. I live the other side of the Forth Bridge so I’ll keep you informed if the weather takes a turn for the worse.

    I’d always wondered why the going is always good there, thought the weather in Edinburgh must be unusually dry! Interesting explanation.

    I’m presuming the name has been inspired by Guesty’s serial loser Mycenean Prince, has it? Nice.

    Actually it’s a double effect at Musselburgh, firstly it’s on sand, and secondly the area is one of the driest in the country and Dunbar, a little further east, is apparently the driest place in the UK. Musselburgh’s proximity to the sea also means that is less susceptible to frost, though they did lose the pre-Christmas meeting to a hard frost. I think the course’s ability to resist harsh weather was one of the reasons they commenced jump racing some years back.

    I’m afraid not, busy at work right now so a midweek meeting is difficult. I hope to be at the meeting on Sunday February 3rd.

    Lol, I think I’ve seen this given out somewhere before as the method of how to work out your porn star name. In my instance, I come out as the very classy-sounding Trixie Huddersfield. She’ll do owt for a fish supper, mek no mistake!

    Mycenean Princess – be assured I wasn’t having a dig (far from it, as the Forum’s longstanding Guesty apologist) – I thought I’d just spotted something about your name not everyone else might have. Do enjoy your time here in the madhouse. :)

    I watched Loose Women the other week – they should be done under the trade descriptions act :evil:

    On a serious note it’s bombing it down here in East London
