    Is it me or did Channel 4 call this horse the winner? I thought I saw the horse after the race with the winners caption underneath. I’m not sure cos I was doing cartwheels in celebration round the sitting room. I just looked up the results and saw it was second. Poor on channel 4’s front IMO :(

    Crizzy,

    I just beat you to it. But you did see right, although you may have been upside down at the time. I must try this new technique, but i’ll probably fall through the TV.

    Didnt have a bet myself but on first watch it looked like a photo and the near side looked the most likely.

    Just hope Simon does not get affected for this next week

    I do cartwheels when I think I’ve won £160. A lesson learnt. At the end of the day the horse lost so I can’t complain about that :?

    I think Mike Cattermole called it a photo on RUK, or at the very least, didn’t come out hugely in favour of one mare over the other.

    Lesley Graham thought Re Barolo was an Italian raider.

    Sickening.

    I sympathise. I used to think that apartheid was a headache remedy.

    And that Harry Connick Junior was an infant school.

    I assume she wouldn’t have made the same mistake had it been Luca Cumani, rather than Marco Botti that trained it.

    RUK couldn’t make their minds up, they just said the camerman thinks he knows

    To be fair, Re Barolo is an ex-Italian horse (today 3rd British start) trained by the son of Italy’s most famous trainer. It’s a mistake easily made by Lesley Graham. I’d have been properly shocked had messrs Hoiles, Holt or Luck made such an error.

    But the son of Italy’s most famous trainer has been training here for a while now, in the town where she used to live, and with some considerable success……….
