You are an imaginary administrator, looking to eliminate ‘bloat’ from the racing calender. Which three tracks would you choose to put the hammer down on?
My choices –
Folkestone (F)<br>Catterick (N)<br>Southwell (A)
I can truly say that that there is nothing that interests me in these three tracks. Nothing at all.<br>Northern England is awash with other venues, and Folkestone’s flat calender could easily be switched to Brighton, whilst Plumpton or Fontwell (even Lingers) could absorb it’s NH itinerary. Southwell is the obvious choice for the axe in the AW catagory.<br>Opinions?
I don’t like Bath much, I can’t get excited about Ludlow or Hereford (aren’t they almost the same track – has anyone ever seen them together?) so one of those can go, and Kempton is the least appealing of the dirt quartet…
