Friday 2 November 2018 saw a return to Wetherby Racecourse for Day 1 of the bet365 Charlie Hall Meeting.

Following last year’s inaugural Day at the Races, we were delighted to host another superb afternoon and to be joined by some 50 clients and contacts of J. P. Wild.

On hand throughout the afternoon to respectively first try and educate our minds as to racing form and then to completely mess with our minds generally as regards anything at all, were the excellent and very personable former national hunt jockey Dominic Elsworth and North Leeds based, Magic Circle Stage Magician of the Year 2016, Sebastian Walton.

Despite Dominic’s best efforts, the horses remained as much of an enigma to the majority of us as ever they did and apart from those pesky bookies, the only absolute winners on the day were those younger members of the surveying profession who, sadly, were not able to join us this year, being quite rightly preoccupied studying for their respective subsequent successes with the RICS APC qualification.

As always, the day was completely made by the most agreeable and convivial company.
