ESMEE'S RACE REVIEW

“Overall, I'm pleased with the progress we've made this weekend. Coming into the weekend with less preparation than I would've liked always meant it was going to be challenging but I think we've had a productive weekend with lots learnt and that will move us forward for the rest of the season. Thanks to all of the team for their hard work as always."
