    Not meaning to be a pedant Nathan, but my ‘one to watch’ is Convey (juddmonte 2yo Stoute inmate) rather than Convoy.

    Thanks to Ghost Of Rob V for the kind words.

    I want to put forward Ryan Moore for the riding performance of the year on Master Carpenter in the Heron Stakes at Sandown in May.

    It’s probably a race many forum users didn’t see and I wish I could find a link to the video, because I think it was the best ride by some margin this year.

    The race report on the ATR website saw fit to include the words "Great Ride" in brackets after the normal comment for the winning horse and I don’t recall seeing that before. The Racing Post described it thus, the following day:-

    "RYAN MOORE produced a masterclass on Master Carpenter as the consistent Rod Millman-trained colt gained a deserved success in the Heron Stakes.

    The three-time champion jockey caught his contemporaries on the hop after engineering a decisive advantage by cutting the corner swinging for home.

    Although Moore brought Master Carpenter towards the rest of the field up the home straight after slipping round on the inner rail, he saved ground and his mount had far too much up his sleeve.

    Millman saddled a double at Bath in the afternoon and after gaining his first treble, he said: "He’s a top jockey and to do that was brilliant. You don’t put Ryan Moore up and tell him how to ride – he decided."

    Deserves to win, in my opinion.

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    To be honest most of the obvious nominations have already been made, so apart from all of the above here are my choices:-

    Poster

    moehat – everyone’s favourite racing mad slightly dotty auntie!

    Flat Jockey

    Paul Hanagan – finally getting his feet under the top table thanks to the likes of Tagroohda.

    Jump Jockey

    Tom Scudamore – tremendous Cheltenham festival.

    Villian

    Philip "how did those steriods get there?" Fenton

    Hero

    Balthazar King – steadily building a legend.

    Flat Horse

    Treve – a one hit wonder this year, but what a hit it was.

    Jump Horse

    Jezki – a genuine champion on his day.

    Flat Trainer

    Marco Botti – the new globetrotter

    Jumps Trainer

    Paul Nicholls – coming back off the ropes with a stellar November

    Owner

    Al Shaqab Racing – it’s not just Coolmore v Godolphin anymore…

    One to Watch 2015

    Nick Rust – might be controversial this. The new BHA head an ex-bookie bod? Stroke of genius or madness?!! :twisted:

    Journalist

    To be honest I don’t read much press so I’ll pass on this one. :?: :?:

    Broadcaster

    Clare Balding – purely because I’m interested to see if anyone votes for her bearing in mind the hoo-haa about her virtual withdrawal from C4 Racing. :twisted:

    Commentator

    John Hunt – consistent and enthusiastic. (Will probably be between Hoiles & Holt tho…)

    Racecourse

    Longchamp – went Arc Trials day, one of the nicest days racing I’ve experienced.

    Riding Performance

    Sam Waley-Cohen – Oscar Time, Becher Chase, Aintree – yes recent but an intelligent ride from the Amateur.

    I think the lad Topham deserves a nomination in the commentator category.

    Nick Luck is a consummate professional in an arena a little wanting in that respect so gets my Broadcaster nod.

    I’ll add some more but, meantime, are you sure about that first fellow in the Broadcaster list Nathan?

    Incidentally, I didn’t know that Leonardo Di Caprio was the Cowboy in Village People.

    The one on the right in the black is Australian 80’s cricket player David Boon.
