Robert Waley-Cohen: wants improvements to be made to Sandown
...
JOCKEY CLUB member and Cheltenham chairman Robert Waley-Cohen has argued Kempton's future should hinge on whether work on the racing surface at Sandown can enable the track to produce ground of equal quality to that of its imperiled neighbour.
If the Jockey Club succeeds in its aim to sell Kempton in a housing venture worth upwards of £100 million, the organisation has pledged to make considerable investment at Sandown, which it wants to become the new home of the 32Red King George VI Chase, a contest others have argued should in such circumstances be moved to Ascot.
Waley-Cohen, whose Long Run was twice a King George winner at Kempton, believes "there are many plusses and minuses" to the proposed deal - which would also result in the installation of an all-weather track in Newmarket - but he is adamant Sandown's ground must be improved considerably if Kempton is axed. To do that he argues the nature of Sandown's Flat programme would need to be examined.
"Kempton has a wonderfully consistent, fast-draining racing surface - which neither Sandown nor Ascot have - but I don't frankly think it has anything else going for it," said Waley-Cohen.
...
Waley-Cohen agrees there are problems at Sandown due to its hurdles course sharing the same turf as the Flat track, which gets watered through the summer, meaning the ground in the jumps season is often deep.
Waley-Cohen added: "My anxiety with chasing at Sandown is the ground where you cross the watered Flat track is always different. That's awful.
