Thanks Alan,
and a fascinating behind the scenes insight into your relationship with Suny Bay.

Paw backed him both times he came second – but cannily outstripped the win with a big place bet. We both felt genuinely sorrow for the horse in our dinnertime discussion after the race. Not that sorry enough though to ruin the evening – main thing is to end up on top …unless you adopt Walter Mattau’s philosophy,.
