Sorry I havnt been able to comment on the above, but BT in their wisdom disconnected my phone line and Broadband and everything else. I looked at the bottom of Ebbisham Lane on Thursday, there is quite a bit of mud about, but we have dug out the sides so any rain that might come will drain away. The are one or two serious pot holes at the bottom of the lane, so caution is necessary. Any tree bits have also been cleared away. The weather looks fine for Sunday, in the morning at least, and temperatures for the race are just about perfect. Although we have advised the stables along Ebbisham Lane that the race is taking place, if somebody feels that they really must take a horse out, there is not much we can do about it. So a bit of care is needed if you see a rider. By the way they are not race horses, the racing stables do not train their horses on a Sunday. See you all on The Downs, Dont be late.
Marttin. According to our entry form we accept entries on the day between 09.30 and 11.00.at the Race HQ subject to the race limit of 700, As at 09.30 on Saturday 5th Jan. we have entries of 660.
I've been assured by our race director that there will be sufficient EODs for anyone who turns up wanting a place.
At least we shouldn't be troubled by snow and ice this year!
