The Great British Bake Off’s Prue Leith swapped her mixing bowls for a race card to enjoy a day at the races in Wincanton with her husband John Playfair on Saturday 16th Feburary.

The celebrity chef and television presenter tucked into a ‘delicious’ chilli con carne before judging the best turned-out horse in the second race, the Betway Heed Your Hunch Handicap Chase, choosing Bigmatre as her winner.

Prue was a guest of racecourse director John Sunnocks with whom she went on a riding safari in Botswana several years ago.

“I knew Johnny and thought, he’s a rider so I’ll ask him to come and we had a fantastic time. We’re here today as Johnny’s guests for a nice day out and so far it has been great.”
