He hasn't posted here for some time. He currently lives on a small island in a lake in the middle of Tanzania where his wife is a teacher.

(this is true - I went to university with him and am in regular contact with him)

He was different class back in the day sint....guys on here fighting over Japanese runners in the Arc at short odds now...he was backing Tap Dance City at >100.....shame the horse had flight problems...only arrived on the Friday.

Remember him cleaning up on Azamour in the King George....took loads of stick on here weeks before the race with his assessment that the horse was screaming for 12f.

thanks for the info. He is a kindred spirit living on a remote little island in the middle of nowhere by the sound of it.
