Well done to all the ladies who took part at the West Vets Spring Meeting at Glasgow Gailes. By all accounts it was a horrible wet and windy day, I take my hats off to all those who endured and made it round. Obviously Ayrshire is just keeping the good weather for the championships in a couple of weeks.
