    I suppose there are other sports, notably rugby today, but I’ll be knee deep in racing related spreadhets and databases chasing that ever elusive nugget.

    What’ll you be up to if racing is off?

    I’m about to go for a bracing walk along the canal before the snow arrives.

    I certainly will not be paying any attention at all to today’s racing.

    Then later on will settle down to watch the rugby.

    Just had a look at the 5 day forecast for Newbury. While it should get warmer on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are not looking very good, so there must be a significant question mark over next Saturday as well. Once the frost has got into the ground, it really needs a significant improvement in temperature to come out.

    Any day without the killing fields is a good day.

    The bonus of AW racing is that it’s not only great but it annoys the tits off folk who cant cut its mustard.

    Each to their own, and please remember that we don’t fit neatly into one camp or the other. If I lived near all-weather tracks I’d be as familiar with the all-weather runners as I am with the jumpers in the north.

    Bit of shopping this morning, watch Lingfield and Wolverhampton on Channel 4, maybe catch a bit of the rugby. After that work my way through tomorrow’s excellent Musselburgh card which, assuming the forecast is accurate, should go ahead.

    Raining in Dunfermline, David, and Musselburgh is better placed than us to avoid the snow.

    Its raining here in eastern edinburgh, no sign of any snow so I am confident tomorrow’s meeting will go ahead.

    First Saturday off from the bookies in a long time and all racing off, terrific. Going to the pub to play darts.

    Leeds Rhinos (won last night), Man City, Birmingham City, Ireland (rugby) fourfold will keep me amused while I try to control/entertain 4 kids.

    Also had a bet on no tries in the Calcutta Cup, 12/1.

    Snows hammering down here (Dudley).

    You know what i’d do ? Slightly alter the racing times on a non-racing Saturday.
    Several meetings off and we have three races within 5 minutes of each other.

    Good old racing – progressive as ever

    The only thing the AW has saved is the bookies as its so bent with poor quality horses been run into the ground.Some of them race 3 times a week with such contrasting performances.If i had the money i would be well out of here.
