Former Prime Minister David Cameron made some less divisive decisions over the weekend, placing a bet on a winning horse at Newbury Racecourse.

He and wife Samantha attended the glamourous event on Saturday (May 14) to support former aide and jockey Isabel Spearman.

Spearman, aboard Danville, won the charity race for the Injured Jockeys Fund – raising £50,000.

She had previously worked for Mrs Cameron as an adviser, stylist and model for her fashion label Cefinn.

This wasn’t the first time that the once Conservative Party leader popped down to Newbury. He paid a visit to the Vodafone headquarters in April 2014 as it opened 150 stores.

Mr Cameron was also raised in close proximity to Newbury, growing up in Peasemore with his family.

His mother, Mary Cameron, a Newbury magistrate for 30 years, was a local church warden, on the committee of the Newbury Spring Festival since its inception and has been a Deputy Lieutenant of Berkshire.

The Wasing Estate was owned by his grandfather Sir William Mount, inherited by aunt Lady Dugdale and now in the hands of Mr Cameron's cousin Josh Dugdale.
