• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting

    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

La Cressonnière La Cressonnière ,

France-Galop was giving the going as bon (good), with a penetrometre reading of 3,2. Based on the following table, it's well above a leger (firm) going:
1,0 à 1,9 -> sec Hard
2,0 à 2,2 -> tres leger Very Firm
2,3 à 2,7 -> leger Firm
2,8 à 2,9 -> bon-leger Good to Firm
3,0 à 3,2 -> bon Good
bon a bon-souple Good to Yielding
3,3 à 3,4 -> bon-souple Good to Yielding
bon-souple a souple Good to Yielding
assez souple Yielding
3,5 à 3,7 -> souple Yielding
souple a tres souple Yielding to Soft
3,8 à 4,1 -> tres souple Yielding to Soft
tres souple a collant Yielding to Soft
tres souple a lourd Yielding to Heavy
4,2 à 4,5 -> collant Soft
collant a lourd Soft to Heavy
4,6 à 5,0 -> lourd Heavy
lourd a tres lourd Heavy to Very Heavy
5,1 à 5,5 -> tres lourd Very Heavy
5,6 et + -> profond Deep

I'll leave it to TheBluesBrother TheBluesBrother to interpret the times for a going allowance.

France-Galop was giving the going as bon (good), with a penetrometre reading of 3,2. Based on the following table, it's well above a leger (firm) going:

The official going on the day was not "good", as Claude Chalet once stated, the French clerks of the courses are under no obligation to return the true going allowances, had they done so, some trainers would have removed their horses from the meeting due to the very fast going conditions

This was the fastest going I can recall in France, I agree with Dave Edwards "Top Speed" assessment of firmx, here in the UK we used to refer to this going description as "hard"

I used the RP standard times:


The speed figure for Tennessee Song should read 66, I can't add up...
