    I didn’t write it Sam. We don’t get paid to write it, we get paid (not very much) to post it.
    I get that the content isn’t it what some of us would agree with or write ourselves and that bookies ads or links may be unpalatable to some but it is what pays for the site and what keeps it free for everyone to, hopefully, enjoy.

    We derive some income to help with the site overheads by running these articles which are provided by third parties.
    I do offer to fix them sometimes but they normally want to run them as sent. If I author anything I’ll usually put my name on it. ‘Posted by Admin’ usually means it is a copy/,paste job for someone paying a small fee, presumably for SEO purposes.

    Good to see at least some of you can recognise when a ‘Cormack’ isn’t an original!

    Racing is already viewed in some quarters as mercenary. Continuing to race in the midst of such a national/global crisis may add to that perception.

    The time for action was three weeks ago.

    Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta announced as testing positive.

    I’d second that Fargo recommendation. Great.

    As for Christmas films, It’s A Wonderful Life is fully deserving of its status.

    Jim Carrey in The Grinch is excellent, a firm favourite in the Cormack house.

    The drawback I could see with a klaxon is that anyone (unscrupulous punter, racing anti) could disrupt a race by setting one off, much more easy to do than with flags. Grand National for example.

    Flags – Why don’t they use a bloody big red one?

    On the jockey bans, the rules are clear and the jockeys have zero excuse for not knowing them. Imagine they’d ignored the flags and careered into an ambulance, or group of people attending stricken horse or jockey. Bans and severity fully justified IMO.

    Very sad to see the loss of Houblon. Grand horse, the type I think most of us build affection for through the years

    Mine timed after the off there so please ignore. Was on a bus in the Scottish Borders with in/out 3G.

    Annoying.

    Both should have been DQ’d. Diego for causing interference and Capeland for not jumping the last. Even though not his fault he didn’t jump the last. How DDC cannot be DQ’d after carting his main rival out the race I have no idea (although I do appreciate it wasn’t intentional).
