    Get this

    the only race fixture in the south at the end of May bank holiday weekend…is

    Fontwell on the sunday

    Now im sure that will be a nice one to visit, but since Sandown’s scandelous decision to move the decent bank holiday card to an evening, why hasnt Kempton (who have fixtures to burn) or any of the other courses stepped in to fill the breach?

    Why no Windsor? Its a monday FFS

    And abolsutely nothing on the Saturday

    Amazing :angry:

    Clive – Whit means one course matters and one course only. Why on Earth would you entertain wanting to go anywhere that weekend other than Cartmel?

    (Oh yeah, or Stratford on the Saturday evening for the Intrum Justitia Cup if you can’t get up to Cumbria. Nothing else is acceptable, however).

    Is that the END OF SEASON meeting at Stratford?

    The erstwhile one, yes. The season is going to finish on Betfred day again this year, for the fourth or fifth season running, and recommence with a Ludlow claiming hurdle fewer than 24 hours later.
