Newbury ground on fast side of good
MANY of the senior jockeys riding at Newbury on Friday reported the ground as good, but clerk of the course Richard Osgood has decided to leave his forecast for Saturday as good to firm, good in places.
He said: "The race times would suggest it's slightly quicker than good. We're forecast the odd shower overnight but it's unlikely to amount to much and it'll just freshen the ground, not change it. More rain is expected later, but that is unlikely to arrive until after racing."
Osgood added that the starting stalls will be placed in the centre of the straight course.
