Foxy, we were thinking that it was the swinley bottom bend that was the problem
But, if it's also the bend into the straight then you are corect
No doubt then more non runners if trainer not happy with change of draw bias, but that's up to them... Can't remember a precedent of what you're suggesting though

Report sixtwosix June 18, 2021 11:49 AM BST
the thought of one blue blood falling over on the bend will mean there is zero chance of racing today.
Management have only one purpose , making decisions. Get on with and abandon rather than the rabbit in headlights we will see .

At least if today is off there won’t be the problem Cheltenham had on windy Wednesday the pubs running out beer and food and the massage parlours having ques outside,as there is only a small attendance.
