Good Ground for Sunday 12th April

On Thursday BHA course inspector Chris Dennis gave his official verdict on the Hornby Castle going as “Good with Good to Soft Patches.” Clerk of the Course David Ford added, “We have an excellent grass cover thanks to our new seeds from Armstrong Richardson. The ground is drying out but Metcalfe Farms from Silver Hill are ready to water as necessary to maintain good ground.”

Watering took place on Friday night on the back section of the course and showers are forecast overnight on Saturday.
