After the somewhat feeble previous result at Hinchingbrooke, finishing 15th out of 16, the March performance just had to be better, and thankfully it was.

The weather was sunny but colder than of late and the course conditions were soft, although those who could negotiate their way to the middle of the track found firm ground under the surface mud, if they were lucky.

10th team place on the day provided some hope for a recovery, but Ely are still languishing in 13th place and unless they can improve on that, this year will be their lowest final position in the league since 1999/2000. However, a face saving recovery is possible if some big guns come out for the last two races.

There were 455 finishers.

The Juniors are also finding the going difficult this year and dropped another place to 13th out of 15. However, the next five teams above are very close, so good performances in the last two races could significantly improve Ely’s position.

There were 193 finishers.
