    Less of course Heffo, if he ever said anything controversial, he would probably feel so guilty, that he would head off to the nearest church and beg for forgiveness.<br>This guy never gets his butt off the fence.

    On his first stint working for the old ‘At The Races’ he BISMARKED a 33/1 shot, which duly won.<br>He’ll always be a legend in my books for that one.

    Rishi is a typical BBC pundit. Says nothing that will upset the apple cart.

    Lets get presenters that ill tell it as it is. Jockey rode a crap race, trainers is at it, horse is useless. It mind make losing our money that wee bit easier!!!

    Harsh, Bigmelly (welcome to the forum btw). Connections seem reluctant enough to speak to the media as it is, without presenters slagging them off and pointing fingers left, right and centre. Although it does get frustrating when they point-blank refuse to dish out critiscism when it’s oh so clearly due!

    I think Rishi will suit the Beeb a bit better personally, because he’s more of a presenter and less of a (i.e. a pretty uselss) pundit, which is more befitting of racing on terrestrial TV.

    Hmmm, I see him more in a non-racing role such as Rishi’s Monday Morning Kitchen, where the affable funster shows you a quick and simple souffle recipe for those embarrassing moments when friends have just popped…(etc, etc, etc).

    Oh, and keep him away from the feckin’ cricket.

    PS. apologies for any typos but it is not easy to type accurately when you have a cat sat on your computer table obliterating most of the screen, BLESS!!!!!
