    It was the Ladies Day at Musselburgh on Saturday past (although the card wasn't that great), I think the big sprint (Edinburgh Cup?) is at a meeting in August maybe. I imagine they just got the caption mixed up - think Ladies Day is usually the second week in June, I'm not sure what made them decide to hold it the same day as the Derby (although admittedly it would be unlikely to be the same horses at both meetings!).

    The big sprint hcap was definitely on the Saturday after the Derby last year but it looks like it might have been a one-off. I have the race on file.

    Not TV but Podcast question.

    Does anybody know why Kevin Blake is no long appearing on the ATR podcast? Has there been a fracture?

    Wouldn't be following the flat podcasts Colm so was unaware - maybe he felt dealing with Kennedy was effecting his professional standing

    Twitter detective work indicates he is taking a mini break at least

    Some people say he’s the best since Arkle and that’s certainly true when you look at what he’s done

    Good old 'manners' seem to have disappeared.

    Surely interrupting connections in the paddock before a race is bad-mannered.

    I know people who work in television are 'very important people' but I'm waiting for the day when one of the owners or trainers tells the presenter where to stick his microphone.
    Ah! but a man's reach should exceed his grasp......

    I agree apart from the idea of people who work in television being 'very important people'. They're not. They're jumped up punters. However, being rude to them on camera would leave people open to being shredded on social media. Someone like David Elsworth might not bother but most racing people would rather grin and bear it than come across as [justifiably] irked.

    I did put quotes around 'very important people', DO.

    You sure social media would jump on connections? Some would but there surely enough people around who would agree with them.

    I think the TV people think the way that you have suggested and take advantage of people's settling for a quiet life.

    I did notice the quotes and assumed you were quoting from having been involved with them at one point as an opinion they have of themselves.

    Appearance or mannerisms?

    Why -because he confused two English Dukes -the Duke of Devonshire lives fairly close to Brian.
