Has anyone seen how slow these were? Significantly slower than on Monday when the clerk of the course called it standard to slow and yet he was calling it standard last night. I’m amazed also at the Racing Post on their time-based ground calling it standard too.
I know Southwell is a new surface, and therefore a special circumstance, but aren’t both tracks slower because of the lack of any significant rainfall during the past few weeks?
I haven’t a lot of interest in the AW this time of the year, and I have no idea of the rainfall in the London area, but how do the other tracks compare this week?
