A historic day at Kinneston and another runner!

Sunny and mild this morning but a wet night and ground at Perth likely to be very heavy, at least racing goes ahead after an early morning inspection and should be wet rather than holding.  This is unlikely to suit our runner Jet Master who is likely to go off favourite for the 2.40 in [...]
