At the present rate, clerks of the course
are having a big say in the results of one in three.
The tracks were deemed raceable by the clerks of the course
yesterday morning but, with more rain expected, all three have decided to adopt a cautious approach and call inspections.
Although this was something of a cock-up, for my money Needham (right) is one of the best clerks of the course
and it was a big misfortune for her that absolutely everybody at Warwick on Thursday had never made a mistake in their lives.
In future, the clerks of the course
will take over from the inspector of courses and be responsible for inspections leading up to a race meeting.
CLERKS of the course
at the two feature meetings on Saturday are expecting a "challenging" few days.
