I walked the Newcastle racecourse twice with my good friend Ian this morning and quite enjoyed it, except for the fact that the going was more good than the soft/heavy we hoped for. Even with some rain forecast in the morning it would not be enough to significantly change the going so after a chat with George the decision was made not to run. With most of the new jumps season ahead to look forward to we will now aim Romany Ryme for a 3 mile maiden hurdle race at Hexham on Wednesday 11th December.
The MGR club members are looking forward to a great days racing on Fighting Fifth Hurdle day at Newcastle on Saturday and the mini bus and tables are booked which will probably mean a few sore heads on Sunday!
I will start work on trying to find a few winners for everyone tomorrow lunchtime and I just hope I do as good a job as I did on our last club day out at Sedgefield.
