It's a long way..

to Murrayfield via Corbridge, and rather expensive when I've driven and seperately sent a horsebox with two staff to the point-to-point only for it to be called off at 11.30 because the ambulance couldn't get round the inside of the course (was it 4WD I ask?).
I sympathise with the organisers but after the previous weekend when frankly they shouldn't have been racing at all it just makes me want to stick to the racecourse and I am sure there are many other people thinking the same....
Luckily Mrs A was extremely kind and met me on the edge of Edinburgh with tickets for the Scotland v Ireland match and whilst initialy rather non-plussed by the amount of empty seats and Scotland's poor play the game came alive in the second half and Scotland played some superb uplifting rugby only just failing to catch Ireland in the closing stages thanks largely to the latter's heroic defending.
No racing until Saturday this week but a fine forecast so hopefully the flood water will eventually recede from my arable ground and we will be able to see if there is any of the (rather valuable) winter wheat left....

Just to clarify I am not the Fabby (or Flabby) Frank the tipster seen around here! But, my tip this week is for Stoke to beat West Brom at about 1.95 on Betfair.

Unfortunately I won't be able to climb the steps to the Golden Miller bar as Mrs C and myself will be trekking around north Africa that week. If I spot any useful looking camels with a combination of speed and stamina I'll let you know.

FrankC must be a better tipster than the hapless "Fabby Frank," guest tips most welcome but foresaking the Cotswolds for walking round North Africa? Just hope its somewhere safe!
Perhaps the Dukes room at Kelso on Saturday instead of the Golden Miller?
