The pros get in some practice in advance of competition weekend

The potential winners of our glittering perpetual cups might well be amongst the pros who turned out on Friday evening at Templemore to put in some serious jumping practice in advance of the Derby this coming weekend. While others enjoyed some less serious hacking on a rare beautiful evening, Francis oversaw an enjoyable session with Nadine, Leo, Geraldine, Paddy, Ruth and Rachael.

It’s all systems go now in the final countdown to Sunday’s big event. Many of you have been contacted and asked to undertake particular duties. If you haven’t been specifically pinpointed, don’t be shy about contacting John on 086 850 2284 to see how you can help out either on the day or in advance.

The course will be built on Friday evening and all hands are welcome.
