    What have we done to deserve such exposure to the full range of skills from Derek Thompson?  <br>Also;  Thank you for visiting tommoracing.com. My name is Derek Thompson, known affectionately as Tommo to the people who watch Channel 4 Racing and Attheraces!

    Does anyone know who his agent is?<br>

    Thommo doesn’t need an agent, even the terrorists ask for him! :biggrin:

    Doesn’t work so well if you’re at the racecourse.

    I guess I’ll not bother going racing tomorrow.

    Anyone see his embarrassing interview with Mark Johnson the other day when the trainer had 2 or 3 horses in the same race and who can blame Johnston for looking irritated with being asked the same moronic questions.

    Tommo – Tactics?<br>Mark – How can I have tactics when I don’t know what the other horses are going to do?<br>Tommo – What is it you do to keep your horses battling on at the end of the races?<br>Mark – Nothing<br>Tommo – Which is the best of your runners?<br>Mark – If I knew that I’d be a millionaire seeing it’s a handicap.

    It’s amazing jockeys and trainers can be arsed answering such tedious questions time after time from morons, maybe the pay is good 😉

    I think it’s the sentence for murder that has more impact…

    I must speak in Thommo’s defense here, and I never thought I’d say it but unlike Boy Band, he does know how to be serious and intelligent sometimes when he needs to be. He changes his presenting style depending on the circumstances and he does it quite well.

    he [Thommo] does know how to be serious and intelligent sometimes

    If this is true, I am not aware of its having manifested itself ever while he has been on screen.

    However, he does do the Racing Bulletin on TalkSport, another to add to his list of engagements.
