An 8.30 start at Newmarket was not a problem! Successful navigation of Cambridge rush-hour and early morning jockeys on early morning rides at Newmarket found us on Hardwick's sister court. Another Bickley court and another court commissioned by Sir Charles Rose, owner of Hardwick., tO entertain him on his visits to the races at Newmarket. Another close contest played on a surface very muck akin to Hardwick.
A thorough repacking of the car and we head off cross country towards rural Essex after briefly meeting the resident professional Andrew Knibbs.
