A good night no real incidents and quality racing. Have to admit not really that interested in the flat (been a pro jump jockey) but been doing the stalls as a casual for bout 5 yrs now and tonight it was great to get close to some top performers. Hopefully i will get all 5 days at Royal Ascot so that should spark up my enthusiasm again!
I did get to see a print last night and it was very, very close – indeed from the print it was difficult to see how Di called it either way.
However when making the call they do it from the screen and are able to zoom in really close – and I am sure it was just down to a couple of pixels difference.
I must admit I think there is an argument that when the decision gets that close they should call a dead heat.
That’s a valid point Paul. When i saw a photo on the racing channel i still couldn’t call it. I wouldn’t be suprised if it was a dead heat. It’s amazing how many people don’t think about seeing a photo finish for themselves.
