    I got the tricast up, if that is what it is called, I never do those fancy bets. Do I win anything?

    Thanks Gladiateur very enjoyable.

    “I’m surprised that there hasn’t been more recognition for Flying Water here.”

    The earlier performances are always going to be hindered when comaparing eras.

    1. Frankel
    2. Brigadier Gerard
    3. Nijinsky

    It has to be Frankel by the way he blew away the field closely followed by BG and you cannot have a top 3 without including the great Nijinsky again though closely followed by Dancing Brave.

    I would not be surprised if the decision to cancel the football season did not have something to do with Paris SG fans gathering outside the stadium for one of their behind closed doors matches.

    You will not get that happening for a behind closed doors horse racing.

    So difficult. I cannot believe I may have to leave out Dancing Brave and Sea The Stars. Still pondering though.

    Yes, a refund or carry forward to next year.

    I got a 2 for 1 offer for the Premier enclosure (which I have never been in) so I have carried it over to next year.

    Good point Gladiateur. It is always difficult when comparing eras not to look what they achieved later on.

    Meant to add I was looking forward to my trip up to Newmarket for the 1000 Guineas, pity the weather has turned. What am I saying the weather doesn’t matter now.

    That is a bit of a blow not having racing in France until at least September. Only the other day The Racing Post published an article that seemed to give the impression they would be restarting in May.

    The clerk of the course at Epsom says he hopes to run the Derby and Oaks on the same day at Epsom in early July.

    Odds 12/5 though that Royal Ascot will go ahead on 16th June.

    Royal Ascot and the reopening of parliament last year was obviously to do with HM The Queen. I would not imagine she will attending this year if it is held behind closed doors.

    Encouraging news if the bookies are odds-on for a restart before June.
