Used to live in same village as me 1/2 a mile away back in the 80s.

could be because he's pals with Stoute.

He is a box ticker.  Plain and simple. Plain
Report ballyregan June 18, 2021 2:05 PM BST
he does this every year so not box ticker the box tickers are the new flood of women football pundits on every channel they are box tickers

Was he on Racing TV then as Sky Have only had it a couple of years? Don't remember him rocking up for two full days.

It's because he's the best ATR have to offer Mischief
Report maleuk01. June 18, 2021 2:18 PM BST
I like him.

He knows his racing and isnt just on the gravy train as he loves it.

A cool voice as well.
Report sageform June 18, 2021 2:19 PM BST
I like listening to him but I doubt if he knows much outside of Newmarket.
Report The Dragon June 18, 2021 2:19 PM BST
he has a nice voice and loves horse racing i guess
Report Barton Bank June 18, 2021 2:29 PM BST
I'd rather listen to him than either Josh Apiafi or Seb Sanders.
Report sludge June 18, 2021 2:44 PM BST
He has had a lifelong interest in the nags . Can often be found at the back of the commentary box doing his study for the afternoons racing......apparently.  Al in all one of my fav cricket pundits , although do miss King Bob ofcourse.

Agreed Barton. Good week for cricketers with David Brown breeding Juan Elcano. I can remember David introducing me to Bob Willis at a racecourse one day. I am just 6 feet tall but felt like a midget.

Used to love the critical analysis Bob provided. Often erred on the side of harsh but very entertaining. No punches pulled.

Cannot imagine Jamie and Jim would be happy with there secondary role today.

To be fair I don't think he brings any less to the table than Tylicki, and unlike many, it is a big plus that he doesn't take himself too seriously. Bring him back.

I must agree that Jim McGrath is not used enough. A career in racing including Timeform, ownership and a seat on the BHA for a while.

He's on again now. Going all BLM as well. Time for my lunch then.
Report barstool June 19, 2021 1:59 PM BST
I don't mind him at all, racing or cricket.

His nickname is "Whispering Death" so called because the umpires could not hear him running in to bowl. No speed guns then but he was 95mph plus for sure. No helmets for

protection either. Tickly tums for sure waiting to face him.

"Situation Anxiety" is what they call it these days, back then it was **** yourselves.
