Sam PhillipsHuge thanks to you all at MSG for putting on a great series. It's so good to have a series that lasts from Feb to Sept with each round offering a different challenge and course personality. As riders, we appreciate the huge amount of effort and graft that goes into making that happen so thank you and I'm already looking forward to 2018!

Just a quick big up for our excellent medics who unbeknown to most quietly and effectively dealt with a badly injured lady rider whose horse was spooked on the horse trail next to the park round about lunch time until such time as an NHS ambulance could get there.
Also big tick to the Gibson ladies for controlling a large frightened horse then returning it to its stables and preventing further incident.
Well done all.

Barry TownsendIt was a real shame the weather in the run up was not great, the racing was challenging this morning, however it didn't detract from another fantastically well run event.

Conditions have changed somewhat as the day has progressed to say the least. On/off rain has meant the going is now bizarre! ... See MoreSee Less

Latest course update a very good fast racing line has developed very quickly. So revised advice is as you were. ... See MoreSee Less

Sit rep on the course is that in many parts the surface is currently greasy. For the MTB brethren, there will be a CX race on half of it tomorrow so conditions may change, but right now it's grippy but sheds mud well as the tyre of choice.
Will try to update at close of play tomorrow.
