How about: "Against All Odds" by Phil "Essential 80’s yuppie listening" Collins.
Maybe they could have some singers too. As the winner comes towards the post…
"Take a look at me now, I have no form what so ever, but I’ve been backed from 100-1 to 4/5 and you’ve done your dough la la la…."

"Kempton managing director Amy Starkey, who has no health and safety concerns, is confident the race will be well supported, saying the music will be no louder than that generated by a large crowd."
A large crowd at a Kempton flat meeting???
I don’t know of any orchestra so muted as to be "no louder" than four men and a dog.
"Ian Maclay, the orchestra’s managing director, said: "We have played some unusual recitals before, but this one has to be the most exciting. We know rousing music can motivate humans to run faster,
but we have no idea how horses will react."
Well that’s being responsibly-minded, isn’t it!
Anyone who has ever seen horses in a parade ring knows that some horses ( particularly 2-y-o’s ) can react adversely to unfamiliar sounds or noises.
This entire idea is daft.
I do suspect however, that saner minds will prevail and that this silly stunt will "quietly" ditched.May 28, 2009 at 14:15 #230652roryParticipant
