Stuart you are correct about the birdage but these races are cancellable if the fanciers show no interest. It was an attempt to give fanciers a wee bit more value for money while the transporter is standing there idle taxed and insured.

The SNFC thing is a different story altogether as Ayrshire program was decided before the SNFC I think. We had hoped for a first race from Newbury but that was changed and I am slightly dubious as to why.

I think the come back races on this occassion will be quite well supported, whether it will be commercially viable is another argument, I feel a lot of fanciers have a lot of inexperianced doo,s this year, maybe not quite ready for the longer races but will be glad to gain a little more experiance from the shorter distance. time will tell.
