Commenting on yesterday's results course designer Bob Ellis said: "The competitions went really well yesterday and I thought the CSI5* classes were superb. There was super footing and the facilities were unbelieveably good. It's a pleasure to build here really. We've had a few problems with winds blowing the fences down overnight, but on the whole it looks as though it's set fair now ready for today."
