Pontefract are watering, 9 hours before racing, on what they themselves describe as ‘Good To Firm, Good in Places’ ground. I have just (9.10am) spoken to the clerk of the course and he admits that it is currently raining, ‘a light drizzle’. Under BHA instructions they are supposed to be aiming for Good To Firm ground. No wonder horses are slipping all over the place on courses and meetings are being abandoned.
