Racing and end of an era
On Saturday my visit will not be to the races but to see Bangor City play in the Welsh Cup. This is likely to be my last visit to Farrar Road before the club moves to its new home in the New Year.
But the rest of you can follow the racing on the television. Again its Channel 4 Racing, they visit Sandown and Aintree. There are some strong fields and will offer some exciting racing. If its national hunt racing you like, you can’t beat Aintree for thrills.
Last Week two of the tips were winners and with one place at good odds it was a modestly successful day. However, as my school reports used to say, there’s plenty of room for improvement. Maybe this is the Saturday. I've chosen some real outsiders so that if they come up you'll have plenty to spend on Christmas, if they don't well its an Oxo cube instead of the turkey.
So by the time the results are checked and you’re all counting your winnings, Bangor City will be in the draw for the fourth round of the Welsh Cup and there will be happiness all round.
