Overnight ground frost left some doubt about the meeting actually taking place and only after a 10 o'clock inspection did the stewards give the go-ahead. Some moans during the day and on-line that they didn't give information fast enough to help people decide whether to come or not, but  for years we've taken a chance and if it was off, well too bad!! Seems today everyone wants everything on line ...sometimes before decisions are even made!!!

Good racing, on what was generally a gloomy day with Gina Andrews completing only the second treble of her career and some impressive performances led by French Canadian in the Intermediate from the Caroline Robinson stable.

Filibuster lost her maiden status when taking the second division of the Open Maiden while t,he front running Start Royal returned to winning form when taking the Ladies Open

The eight races resulted in the final race being run in the semi-dark but a good crowd enjoyed some fine weather and competitive racing.

Thanks to all involved in org arising another excellent meeting.
