Soft ground at all three remaining cards this afternoon. A fairly dry and cold day all round.
As I outlined yesterday, we have special memberships available from £25 for the Cheltenham Festival preview and membership. Proceeds to the Lambourn Valley Housing Trust (Registered Charity No. 1049742). The trust build affordable homes for stable staff and their families which helps keep these valuable workers in racing. We will donate a minimum of £25 from all memberships.
Thank you very much for the excellent cheque which I have received from you. It will be a great help.
The Lambourn Valley Housing Trust continues to work hard for the welfare of the Stable Staff in the Lambourn Valley. Through generous donations and income from the annual Good Friday Lambourn Open Day, 18 houses have been built at Francome Fields on land it purchased and a further two more have been bought.

Following the abandonment of Kelso, just the one race for us today.
3.10 Doncaster BetBright Mares´ Novices´ Hurdle (Listed Race) (CLASS 1)
Softer ground at Donny than was anticipated when entries were made.
Yes I Did sets the standard and conditions are fine as she goes for her fourth victory from five hurdle starts this season.
Hollies Pearl is of interest. Has top class bumper form. She has had problems with her jumping but that improved on latest start when blinkers and a tongue tie were fitted for the first time. That run was at Fakenham over 2 miles, which was much too sharp. Three miles at Donny could see an improvement.
My prices as follows:
Yes I Did 2/1
Briery Belle 4/1
Hollies Pearl 4/1
The Organist 4/1
Please give serious consideration to the special memberships. My thanks to Donn McClean, Micky Hammond, John Hunt, Paul O’Hara and all the Lambourn trainers for freely providing their services.
