So what has it been like for you? This past year of night slipping into day and Saturday and Sunday and Monday being very similar. A year when many have some work or no work and others are marooned at home staring at a screen waiting for the call to ‘beam me up Scottie’. And people spouting all sorts of verbal garbage online without any fear of retribution.

There is living, and there is living, and sport without crowds is becoming increasingly dull and tasteless. Even Cheltenham was not the same, maybe for the winners it was still great but part of the attraction is the roar of the crowd, which helps make every occasion.
