Southwell - General view

Huge entry made for all-bumper meeting

TRAINERS gave Southwell's decision to stage an all-bumper card a massive thumbs-up on Saturday by making huge entries for the newly-arranged fixture.

No fewer than 242 horses were entered in the six race all-weather card, which is being staged to provide extra opportunities for those denied a run on turf by the current freeze.

The biggest single entry is 67 in the maiden bumper, the opening event on Wednesday's Fibresand programme.

The meeting is the brainchild of Southwell clerk of the course Roderick Ducan who was delighted by the entries for the races and said: "It is fantastic and it is terrific endorsement of the decision to run them."
