“‘Neville’ is 17 now, but he doesn’t feel it! He doesn’t need to learn anything new, so we are planning to take things easy with him for the rest of this year. He’ll hack out and potter about, then we’ll start again in the autumn with some quiet training and target the Tokyo Olympics with the same plan as we had in place for this year.
