This promises to be a nail biting day where you won't be sitting on the edge of your seats but most likely on your feet cheering the riders on!

Ladies and gentlemen! Be a cut above the rest in a new body warmer and make yourself instantly popular with the masters by producing, from its pockets, some sloe gin in one of our smart new hip flasks. Several would be delighted with a flourish of your wind-proof lighter. With the festive season less than 15 weeks away [Thanks for that - Ed] , these will provide affordable gift solutions of ineffable quality, while simultaneously raising money to support your hounds. What a warm, roseate glow that will produce! Especially after the sloe gin.
All available from Sheila Lillywhite. See her at meets.
