My group enjoyed some aspects of this and really didn't like some of the others. The way they went about solving the mystery was super challenging for them to piece all the details together about who did what and why (and learn the rumos were or weren't true). I should have cut the spellcasting event as we only had 1 out of the 4 that could participate, but they really wanted to. This led for a very boring interaction for the rest of the group. By the time we got to the grand melee, no one even wanted to participate with the rules. I had Aelfred cancel the grand melee because they had uncovered some of the plot by then and had convinced Devon to tell what he knew. The horse race was GREATLY enjoyed, but we had printed 3d horses that held their minis, so I think that's really why they enjoyed it.
