Plus 12, windy and dry when driving in.. shirt sleeves!
Wetherby was very tiring ground and Balleticon who finished 3rd rather failed to finish out his race..
We jumped Vinndication, Hamilton Dici and Gerard Mentor.
Oli Bell was here mid morning to film our Cheltenham runners..and see his horse Two For Gold
Three weeks today we will be on day 2 of the Cheltenham Festival and as a result the interest is growing and all the racing channels and papers are short of content.. so they are doing their best to build the interest up.. especially now that we know the bad news that no owners will be allowed to attend..
