Chester May meeting

The Chester May meeting is one of my favourite flat meetings; it gets pretty busy though.

Stephen Cartmell in his book 'From Aintree to York: Racing Around Britain'
pokes fun at the 'intimate' description of the course; he describes it as a crush and he's absolutely right.

The view of the racing from the city walls was once described as 'the best free view in sport'.

Not any more - that accolade now has to go Towcester.
