    I am just about to start a thread to open debate on your views on the role of the punter. I differ from you but that doesn’t stop it being an interesting topic, I’m sure it’ll attract some heated debate. Your ears may well get hot!!

    My ears will not be hot at all – I am perfectly happy with my position but fully accept there are others, undoubtedly the majority who hold a contrary opinion.

    I respect their right to hold that opinion, even if I do not agree and I hope they will equally respect my right to hold mine.

    I will watch the debate with interest although it is highly unlikely I will join in.

    That £140m is training fees which, presumably, goes to the trainers.

    Surely most of that money goes to paying stable staff, horse feed, yard costs etc

    Doubt the 140m (based on 800 training fees per month) includes vets bills, entries, raceday expenses including travelling etc?

    Very expensive game for an owner, and if I had a horse in training, would be more inclined to go to France or USA
