Flippers and snorkel at the ready, horses with web hooves only need apply, those with an aversion to soft should stay in their stables and I should think that the ground at Lingfield will start to soften up judging by the amount of rain we had in Sussex last night only a couple of miles as the crow flies from the course and the relentless downpour since in Middlesex. Just checked the going report on the and my suspicions are confirmed with Lingfield absorbing 9mm of rain upto 10.30 it is now Good to Soft.
How refreshing and heartening to open up the Racing Post and find a jumps meeting on the centre page. It has been a tremendous flat season but I like many others crave the National Hunt and slowly but surely the more familiar names are having their seasonal debuts. Today we welcome back West With The Wind and hopefully we will see the real DRILL SERGEANT, yet he is carrying more weight than me today!
The Ffos Las 3.20 is a tremendous little contest and the five pound claimed by Aodhagan Conlon on BLACK JACK BLUES may be crucial. AL QEDDAAF has the weight advantage in the Ffos Las 4.50.
The rain hasn’t reached deepest Wales so they are still racing on a surface with firm in the description but get the wellies and brollies ready one and all tomorrow, the forecast is for a shocker!
