Good morning all,
It's Super Saturday, if our beloved trade paper is to be believed, but given the number of meetings vying for our attention I'd rather be calling it Silly Saturday!
Newmarket, Ascot and York all stage big meetings and between 3.00 and 4.30 your head starts to spin with the amount of big races crammed into that 90-minute period.
I don't see how having the July Cup, John Smiths Cup and a Group 2 at Ascot all on the same day can be for the greater good of racing. It does seem that courses want to put all their eggs in one basket and have weekend racing, but the flip side of that is the dross that most Mondays and Tuesdays churn up instead.
