    Black caps donned, or rather blue and white striped ones – the great man was never second choice………

    This week represents the last chance to have that life changing lucky 15 on Richard Hills, and I’ll certainly be taking advantage.

    Fans of the Richard will be congregating in a suitable hostelry to celebrate the Great Man’s achievements shortly. I’m currently in discussions with fellow Pasor Gamble to arrange a date and venue and will keep you all posted of developments.

    Into my heart an air that kills
    From yon far country blows:
    What are those

    Blue Remembered Hills

    ,
    What spires, what farms are those?

    That is the land of lost content,
    I see it shining plain,
    The happy highways where I went
    And cannot come again.

    Jocky met with Jenny fair
    Aft by the dawning of the day;
    But Jockey now is fu’ of care
    Since Jenny staw his heart away.
    Altho’ she promis’d to be true
    She proven has, alake! unkind
    Which gars poor Jockey aften rue
    That e’er he loo’d a fickle mind.

    Tis o’er the Hills and far away
    Tis o’er the Hills and far away
    Tis o’er the Hills and far away
    The wind has blown my plaid away

    I have fond memories of winning a chunk at the 1992 Derby on Zaahi in the Diomed – set me up for a lovely summers day with the old man – nicely p**sed as they say! It was a ridiculously open Derby so it was nice to fill my boots early doors and enjoy the spectacle!

    He had his critics, but rode horses according to his paymasters’ long term wishes for the animals. Can’t get fairer than that!
