Plus 4 and dry when driving in. It was very wet overnight.

So wet were the roads that Mat said he was aquaplaning driving home last night..

Will McNeile has moved on.

Will who has been riding out here for the last 3 months has finished his ‘tour of duty’ and now heads to France to further his education in stud work for Ecurie des Monceaux. (Worth clicking on the link).

Will's father Peter was closely linked to Cheltenham Racecourse and now run the PR side of the Cotswold point to point and other ventures. Anyway Will, good luck, we have enjoyed having you here.
