The worst I have attended so far. No Free Handicap, no AOB, no crowds and no atmosphere. Hope it picks up today. Big bright point was Lumiere's daughter winning yesterday.

The conditions race on Tuesday isn't much of a trial, the Craven doesn't look great. Not sure how cancelling a 7f listed race makes much of a difference to the pattern. I think it weakens the meeting.
