Regular update on the ground conditions in the Johnstone Park
In this, the second of the regular Going Reports, the Clerk of the Course writes:-
The main arena remains in very fine condition, the goal posts removed for the summer and the grass has been cut recently down to a much lower level. In spite of some recent rain, the official ground can still be described as HARD.
The path up from Back Road to the Golf Course has been cut again as have the overhanging branches and border hedges and the access gap from the Golf Course to the gate on to the hill widened by the cutting back of the whin. More work will be done on the route on to the hill up to and including the Sunday before the races. This is unchanged from the last report.
