Mark Todd: Cross-country will take centre stage *H&H VIP*

Opinion

The weather gods must have been smiling on Belton and its organiser, Stuart Buntine, last weekend. On the Friday, we all thought they were mad to run the novice and intermediate classes — lorries were being towed into the lorry park and off again. But it is staged on amazing old turf, and next day the sun shone and the park dried out. Stuart and his team did a great job.
