    Wonderful viewing. Corinthian sport at it's best or worst! Why are there though, no steeplechase fences in the home straight? This was obviously not held in mid summer. Lovely to see old elm trees as well which I remember as a toddler in the late 1960's before their fateful disease. The start is something else! I could ramble on and on...........
