my perfect weekend

On Friday night I'd: Sky Sports News is 24 hours, so the time I leave work varies from week to week, but I love to finish at a reasonable time and spend the evening at a nice restaurant with my friends. We all have hectic work schedules so good food and a nice bottle of wine shared over a proper catch-up is a great way to wind down. London is such a vibrant place to live so we are spoilt for choice for good places to eat when it comes to going out

My favourite stiff drink is: A bottle of Malbec shared with friends.

Saturday morning lie-on or gym session: The latter never happens on a Saturday morning. If I'm not working over the weekend I prefer to get the papers and cook a big breakfast with the girls I live with followed by a walk in Richmond Park.

My favourite item of clothing is: A red BCBG maxi dress I picked up in the Selfridges sale.

My Saturday night fever: I am more of a Saturday day girl than a Saturday night one. I love to go to the races, show jumping or a big sporting occasion and meet up with friends, have a glass of wine and enjoy the action before heading for supper near home.

My favourite hangover cure: A long lie-in to sleep it off.

On Sunday I rest by: Nine Sundays out of ten I'm working, so I'm not sure if Sunday rest applies to me.

I'm currently reading: Clare Balding's autobiography, My Animals and Other Family. Her father and brother were big supporters of mine when I was training for the Cancer Research Charity Race at the Cheltenham Festival in 2011, and I spent three months training at their racing yard in the build-up to my race, so it's interesting reading about her childhood memories from the same place where she grew up.

My last supper: Fillet steak, medium rare, with pepper sauce and home-made chips washed down with a glass of red wine followed by melted Camembert with fresh bread.

Sky Sports News presenter Rachel Wyse will judge Blossom Hill Ladies' Day at the Dublin Horse Show, RDS, on Thursday, August 8. The Best Dressed Lady winner will walk away with a trip to New York worth €8,000
