Well done Trogs, at least the weather is good at the moment for training. I am afraid that Ebbisham Lane is looking a bit worse for wear, when I went up it last week The rain has played havoc with the tarmac part of the Lane. .
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.
Glad you have all been checking out the course. Dont forget prior to the race we have a team that will dig out the sides at the bottom of Ebbisham Lane so that the water can run away into the fields at either side. We will look after you all, and make the course as friendly as possible.
