<br>Horse of the Year   –    Detriot City

On the basis that he keeps breaking records for a horse of his age – the Cheltenham/Aintree double, the Cesarewitch without a prep race, the Greatwood and the Bula, neither won by any four year old for decades. <br>I also have a soft spot for Reverence on the flat.

Trainer of the Year   –   Paul Nicholls

Not only for the first championship and the big winners already this season, but for his excellent attitude towards keeping the public informed – e.g Kauto Star declared a definite runner in the Tingle Creek three days earlier than required by the rules. We all know how others would have handled the situation.

Jockey of the Year   –  

Not exactly a great year for the jockeys and I can’t think of one that stands out. Agree with DJ’s comments about Moore, but his unwillingness to be interviewed gives him a painfully low profile for a champion.

Poster of the Year   –   Cormack

For the very obvious reason that without him, we might not have TRF at all, leaving all the other candidates with nowhere to post.
