By contrast, Simon ... [cached]

By contrast, Simon Bazalgette, chief executive of the Jockey Club, the group which owns Kempton, feels the King George could even benefit by a switch of venue.

He told At The Races: "We feel we can deliver all the National Hunt and all-weather fixtures, including iconic races like the King George VI Chase, as well as, if not better, elsewhere.
"The National Hunt world is absolutely critical to us and if we felt we were going to weaken the programme we wouldn't do this but we feel we can enhance it, not just taking the King George to Sandown but by taking fixtures all over the country."
Bazalgette did, though, issue a caveat that a possible new all-weather course at Newmarket will not be built to cater for the masses.
He added: "We're not expecting to get crowds of 20,000 for the all-weather at Newmarket.

Jockey Club CEO Simon Bazalgette (ancestors invented the London sewage disposal system down which pan Kempton will be flushed) when asked where the booty would be spent mumbled: "We've put a lot of money into the fences at Aintree and Warwick".

There is talk from Bazalgette of a "new heritage" an oxymoronic phrase which I can't even begin to unscramble; Charles Dickens might.
