Just over 100 mounted followers were at the meet hosted by bloodstock auctioneers Tattersalls at its Park Paddocks complex in The Avenue along with hundreds of supporters on foot.

A total of £2,660 was raised from the bucket collection and a bottle draw, which was shared between the Injured Jockeys’ Fund and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
