    It costs me 35quid to travel 12 miles in a taxi after a night out but I'm a fair bit further north than Manchester.

      Me and a friend are planning on making up for a lost year this season and doing a few trips! So planning to fly over and go to Sandown for Tingle Creek meeting - go to racing Friday and Saturday, and make the trip to Romford Dogs on the friday night. I can see via google that Sandown - Romford is roughly 65-70 mile, what are you talking roughly for a taxi for that trip? And has anyone any hotel recommendations for staying close to Sandown?

      of course providing we are allowed back on tracks by then?!

      Cheers!
      In Case you don't know Sandown has a station very close by , so you could base yourselves in london and train to the races , see the big smoke as well . ??.

          I had read that yes but there for a good old punting weekend Chaang, only sites I want to see is a betting ring and an Indian to celebrate.

          • I’ve just read the news headlines and it looks like rescue efforts to turn Santini around in the Suez Canal are stalling, hopefully they’ll work out a way of moving him off the sand banks so he can finally complete his Gold Cup attempt before the season ends

                Nope, did a Chelt double this morning with mine as it happens (Shishkin/Flooring Porter).

                    • Has anyone heard potential targets for Haut en Coleurs ?
                      Stayed on very well in the Triumph and a performance that got lost on many, easy to forget that he only joined Mullins 6 weeks before the festival.
                      I'm not convinced a sharp 2m will suit but if they go chasing the Marsh might be perfect...

                      • Can someone point me in the right direction to the post that had the prices from this time last year, that highlighted the winners at this seasons Festival? I've looked everywhere, and I can't find it.

                        Either that or whoever posted it, could you re-post it please.

                        Thanks in advance.

                            • Dont think there will ever be a year like this year again. The best I've witnessed in 40 years of the Fez. Weird how it happened in Covid year and a year where the economy now needs a massive pump from the public. The majority on here I suspect will do just that with their winnings. I love conspiracies.
