‘The Voice’ is still in a great deal of rude health.

And it was displayed to its full range in front of thousands of people crammed into the stands and trackside at the July Course.

All the hits were there ... Delilah, Green Green Grass of Home, Mamma Told Me, It’s Not Unusual, Sex Bomb, which lit up the course, and Fall In Love.
