    Emphatically not a non-racing day for me – plenty to enjoy on the synthetics at comparative leisure. In between that, it’s been an afternoon of sorting out invoices and booking correspondents to cover this coming month’s Pointing fixtures – rather more of the last-named sitting at home awaiting my call than might ordinarily have been the case. 8)

    I’m going to need to discover the attractions (or otherwise) of this ‘pointing’ lark one of these days.

    After that work my way through tomorrow’s excellent Musselburgh card which, assuming the forecast is accurate, should go ahead.

    Well, what a bummer

    I too was confident Musselburgh would go ahead as it was +5C in Edinburgh at 1900Hrs last night. So the formbook was prised open with eager anticipation

    What to do on a non-racing Sunday? Skiing on The Knavesmire perhaps. Snow is six inches deep here and it’s currently -7C

    powder day!

    We are about 35 miles up the A1 from London and we’ve had about 6 inches of snow overnight, but it’s not freezing at the moment. Might get a bit nasty if it freezes tonight though!

    Luckly the AW racing has saved the day yet again :D

    If you think that unedifying sight at Wolverhampton this afternoon did anything top promote racing then you have a different view of the sport than I do.

    Funny how it was abandoned as soon as C4 stopped broadcasting

    They should have done a Cheltenham preview – was obvious days ago there would be little quality racing this weekend.
