          Good evening. Sadly I am just getting around to arranging something for my wife's birthday on 28th July. I thought I might take her racing and saw you on a trip advisor search. It shows you as fully booked, but I thought I would ask if you have any cancellations for the night of 28th? My wife is also particularly partial to cider which is another reason I homed in on you. I look forward to your response. Thank you
