Racing news Subdued start for new CH4 team

Subdued start for new CH4 team31st December 2012

Channel 4's new-look racing team swings into action on New Year's Day - despite the best efforts of the British winter to put a dampener on proceedings.

While the high-profile meeting at Cheltenham has been abandoned due to a waterlogged track, there will still be live action from Musselburgh, who report no problems with the weather.

That will give racing's armchair viewers the chance to gauge the new presentation team headed by Clare Balding as Channel 4 will be the only terrestrial channel providing live coverage after BBC pulled out. She will now be at Nicky Henderson's stable in Lambourn to help fill in the programme which will be reduced by half an hour to two hours.
