“So thank you, Bunbury, as this really is a sensational Classic to play in. I particularly like the fours and pairs as it makes it very interesting.

“Bunbury really does a great job. We appreciate it and we know what it is like having to run a Classic — it is hard work.

“Thanks as well to all of the girls we played with and met. There were some lovely girls over the two days and we had a lot of fun.”
