    Horse racing will be top of the agenda after Gullinbursti was killed at Bechers.

    Anyway I hope Silviniaco Conti wins the big one tomorrow though I doubt he will stay the trip. Also done Holywell and Wonderful Charm, best race in years as there are so many classy horses running.

    Ay it will ..was being slightly facetious there about the Daily Fail...

    Silviniaco Conti will lack stamina I think..as Wonderful Charm... but Holywell looks interesting for sure...I have a fancy for Ucello Conti,half brother to Silviniaco Conti and maybe Goonyella and Saint Are.. but there are a lot of good horses running so hopefully will be a good race with no horrible incidents.

    A pretty unbelievable performance from Winx today. Special to watch. I've always rated Sunline as easily the best 1600-2000m mare I've seen, but Winx is really forcing herself into the conversation.

    RIP to Moscow Flyer one of the best chasers I have seen. Great era of 2 milers in his day.

    Well, that was a fitting end to an absolutely stunning season by Enable. Not sure I've seen a better three-year-old filly in Europe in my lifetime.

    And a mega-rich casino owner finishes first (for the sixth time, no less) and second. Hard to be excited about that, although the father-son training angle is at least something.

    Maybe just the circles that I mix in but there definitely seems to be a lot less interest in the Cup/horses in the field these days

    People will still take the opportunity to party & watch the thing but nobody I know had the foggiest about any of the runners and didnt care either

    Would obviously be different if a Winx was in the field but yesterday was all a bit ho hum
