Cheltenham Clerk of the Course, Simon Claisse began watering the New course yesterday in order to maintain the ground that we’ve seen at the track during the first two days of the meeting.
Watering began shortly after the last race yesterday and was expected to be completed by about 1am with only selected parts of the New course being watered with approximately 3 – 5mm being applied to around two-thirds of the track.
The going is being described as good, good to soft in places on the Chase and Hurdle track as per yesterday.
Claisse said; ‘’ We will be selectively watering to maintain current conditions, which are good, good to soft in places.
“It’ll take until one in the morning. We’ll put between 3mm and 5mm on the ground that’s quicker, which is around two-thirds of the New course.”
No further watering is planned for Thursday night and Claisse said: “The intention is that this should last for two days. We have done it three times before on the Wednesday night of the festival. It’s due to be dry and sunny tomorrow and getting warmer, more like 14-15C.”
