Raceday Report – Tuesday 13th August

Raceday Report – Tuesday 13th August

Picnic Raceday was suitably sunny and warm. The going was good to soft, good in places. The opener was a ten furlong contest for maiden fillies. The first five finished in a heap. James Fanshawe’s Sincerity (11/4 fav) was pushed and shoved along in fourth place to little avail by Tom Marquand for some time. However, she appreciated the tenth furlong most and went ahead with a hundred yards to go, finishing three quarters of …

Raceday Report – Thursday 18th July

This fixture was transferred at short notice from Worcester, while that course is undergoing repairs due to earlier flood damage. It was a bright warm evening, and there were some small fields, but the racing was interesting throughout. The first on the card, a 2m4f mares chase, had only three runners, but one was the prolific mare Midnight Folie, who had won eight points and chases in a row. She couldn’t make it nine, though. …
