Guess where in Wigan you won't see it.
We must be a superstitious lot

Well, the Three Sisters Circuit, in Ashton in Makerfield, comes under Wigan council, and you won't see "Race 13" on any programme there. Or at any other race circuit for that matter! It's always "Race 12A" after Race 12 and before "Race 14".

"Last Call for competitors in Race 12A please, Last Call" !

When I was working on new house developments in the 1990's, they never had a plot number thirteen, I don't know if that still exists today.

Ahhh., but that post is numbered 31, which is 13 backwards, so you might be due for a reversal of fortune!

It's the vaccination centre at Robin Park. All the jab booths are numbered but jump from 12 to 14. No sign of 13.

Numbered jab booths jump from 12 to 14.

So long as we can count on the vaccine, I-Spy.
