Always warming to see when a tv channel doesn't forget the people who had such a great effect on the sport, and equally as nice to see those people speak so openly and frankly. ITV well done.

Gerry Supple the grey-haired chap there throwing the rug over the horse after the race. He never did get round to riding out his 3lb claim!

Used to do the filly I had at Martin's when he was a conditional jockey there 20 years ago.
