Matthew (37, King's Chester, Exeter College, Oxford and Christ' College Cambridge) comes to his new job a stone lighter than his usual weight, having slimmed to ride in this year's Newmarket Town Plate for charity. He rode the grey, Medieval Chapel, but was caught at the post.
Matthew also boasts an A-level in computing from West Cheshire College, and worked for a time for the family business, Border Business Systems, based in Farndon, which specialises in software for direct marketing. They came up with the online system that auto-enters your address when you supply postcode and street number...Second in the Newmarket Town Plate. Congratulations to Sheikh @FahadAlthaniQR who rode a superb race to victory https://t.co/Xs1JIPKshu— Matt Hancock (@MattHancockMP) July 7, 2016
