Letter: It's 'brilliant' again.
IN THE Questionnaire feature on March 22, Clive Smith, owner of Kauto Star and Master Minded, was quoted as saying that his least favourite racecourse is Tweseldown in Hampshire.
"It used to be brilliant," he said, "but they let the trees grow so you can't see the racing."
Mr Smith's attentions have understandably been directed in recent times towards grander places than Tweseldown, which now stages three point-to-points annually as well as top-class eventing and the Aldershot Horse Show.
But if he is able to visit Tweseldown on April 26 for our final point-to-point meeting of the season, he will be able to see 95 per cent of the racing. The centre of the course has been landscaped under the direction of manager Brynley Powell.
Tweseldown is once again "brilliant" and is very popular with trainers and riders - and it even has a grandstand, a legacy of the pre-war days when it was a bona fide racecourse.
