Tiverton Foxhounds meeting at Chipley Saturday February 2nd 2013

February 04, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

An early start from the Cotswolds, but with the sun shining and the forecast good, the miles went quickly and I arrived in plenty of time for my first visit to this lovely course.

I'd expected a good crowd after losing two weekends to bad weather, but somewhat disappointingly for the organisers, the locals stayed away. Not too many more than 500/600 I'd reckon which was a pity as the racing was excellent throughout the meet.

A number of the well fancied horses failed to fire and there were a few good priced winners for some lucky punters to latch on to.

A quick exit after the last and a rapid return up the M5 saw me cover the 120 miles in well under 2 hours and meet a 6.30 dinner appointment in Evesham on time......and have no hassle from the other half!!
