Racing got going again at the weekend and Dancing Shadow ran well yesterday in the Handicap Chase at Exeter finishing sixth with 4 of them finishing within a length of each other. The ground was soft and quite holding and the race was run 40 seconds above standard – the ground would not have suited him as he really prefers good/good to soft ground.

Persistent rumours amongst the BHA officials and others at the races yesterday was that racing and other elite sports were going to be stopped, but this has been subsequently totally denied in a joint statement from the Government and the BHA.
