Oh Kauto this year. Though his fall in 2006 in the Champion chase was the bigger financial hit to me at the time.

Ninetieth Minute without a doubt for me.

Was bawdeep on Mirage Dore (second) and had a reasonable bet on Kawagino e/w at 100/1 (fifth)

Wish he hadn't turned up Cry

I backed him in the World Hurdle 2 days later at 66/1, never thought Inglis Drever would win a 3rd.

I was all over the Drever that day as my boy Mighty Man was not present.

He will come back big and better than before.

Cant wait for the real racing to start - I always consider the Chepstow early October meeting the start of the season.

Rushing Wild in the Gold Cup

If he had won I would have finished 3rd in the Ten to Follow comp! Prior to Chelt that year, the RP posted the top 100 lists and I was sitting in 60th and was the only person with RW.

Felt pretty awful after the race - but that could have been the burger (or three days of over-indulgence).

Harchibald in the County Hurdle - give what he acheived subsequently he should have been a penalty kick off that markCry

Recently it is Dunguib in the Supreme. I decided foolishly that he was a certainty and would pay for the meeting. I should have learned by age 66 that backing favourites is a fools game but he looked bombproof. Sorry The Sawyer about Rushing Wild. I always thought that Jodami was a certainty given a fast pace and RW gave him a perfect lead. The following year they crawled round and The Fellow mugged Jodami for speed from the last.

Beech Road - all looking good until a 3 week dry spell put paid to his chances in 1990. Would have won me over £50k which was one hell of a lot of money 20 years ago (and still is Laugh  )

I love high class horses with that little bit of something and Canford Cliffs had it all for me.

When he was beaten in France it was the biggest bet of my life. Took me a long time to get it back but that wondeful girl Zenyatta went a long way towards my recovery and just about every big bookies dismay :o)

Canford Cliffs made up for it big time though. I let him run in the Guineas got stuck into him again in Ireland and couldn't get enough on when he beat Rip Van Winkle. Just as well or I'd be back in the grubber.

I'll be following suite and hammering Zenyatta again so if she gets beat send flowers.

Straw Bear in the Supreme. I hate watching that race. Noland came out of the clouds and stopped what would have been a fantastic start to my festival that year. Would have paid for that and the next years !!!! Arrghhhhhh!

Zealot, the defeat of Flyingbolt that day was the outcome of a careful plan by Johnny Haine and Bob Turnell. They ran Flash Bulb against him in the QM the day before and went flat out for a mile and a quarter to make sure that Flyingbolt had a hard race. It just did the trick. I can remember the two white faced chestnuts coming to the last in driving rain and the little un just prevailed. I knew Johnny from childhood and we were on SS big time.
