Pssst they say there’s a horse race this afternoon…

It’s the Grand National again apparently.

Listen, I love the tradition, the romance, the old stories, but I can’t bear to watch the race.

Do you KNOW how big the big fences are? Did you know a grown man can only cower in the shadow of Becher’s drop? This race is a massive test of man and beast. Don’t watch it lightly.

Red Rum @ Southport

I want State of Play to win. Other than that I will settle for safe return all round.

    Never mind that; what’s the nap for Lingers?

    nb/AMB: RP napping Niche Market!

  2. Go Niche! Harry Skelton put in a clear round in the Topham yesterday so that bodes well.

    Off to the bookies now to put on my last forecast and tricast combinations (he who dares and all that).

    Be lucky

  3. Hello

    Thank you.
