Course Report - Dingley meeting on 26th March

Racing at Dingley racecourse

Following Monday’s course inspection (14 March) we are delighted to say that the course inspector was extremely happy with the ground ahead of the Easter Saturday Woodland Pytchley meeting, the first of three at Dingley Racecourse this year.

Fence three has been completely rebuilt and there is now a brand new fence in place. There is good grass cover throughout; we will lightly roll the ground next week and mow if necessary.

Currently the going is good to the soft side of good but we have good forecasts ahead and are confident of good going  on EasterSaturday.

We have a full reservoir so we will be able to water the course if necessary for the subsequent meetings at Dingley on the 1st and 14thMay this year.
