Cheltenham Weather - snow?

Postby Shrews » Sat Feb 10, 2018 1:20 pm

30 day forecast, with Cheltenham in mind for the 13th-16th. The MET office says, the cold snap will continue and there may be snow!

Will we be seeing a soft or even heavy ground "Desert Orchid" festival this year? Perhaps worth having at the back of our minds if we're thinking of an antepost bet or two.

"The end of February is likely to stay cold but often dry and settled with widespread frost overnight. This weather could last into early March, with a greater chance of easterly winds, which would bring very cold weather at times. The cold weather could well continue into the second week of March, although we may see some short-lived changeable spells bringing the risk of snow in places."

Also rememberd The Thinker winning in the snow storm,

So look for better value one, ie ignore the well favourite ones..

If i remember rightly, the thinkers race was put back and was run after 5.00, he was the first gold cup winner i backed even though i was under age at the time.

It was THE THINKER race that was put back as I was doing my nut and wanted the race to abandon as I was on For GiveN Forget and he wanted good ground, hopefully we will not see this cold spell appearing
