Roland I’m glad you mentioned Ei Ei! That was another I was going to add to my list this evening. He was another killed during a race, jumping the last when winning if I remember rightly.

<br>Terrific campaigner, with a hugely enthusiastic owner in Sarah Richards and an admirable attitude to the sport.

He met his end when falling in a Market Rasen handicap hurdle two summers ago – he was getting on for a distance clear of the remainder when the terrible accident happened.

His demise was used as another stick to beat the purported evils of summer jumping in a number of outlets (including, sadly, on this forum for a few days), and frankly the horse deserved better than that.
