To whet appetites here are a few snippets from the betting ring today.
I had my first ever on-course bet with Ricky back in 1983 – he know works with Star Sports and is still smiling, probably because he still has my fiver.
If you are going to give these stickers out at the festival how many do you get made up? Too many would be very pessimistic wouldn’t it?
Channel 4 interviewed bookie Andy Smith prior to racing – I’m sure he’s telling them that he gets his millinery inspiration from me.
The joints were rocking as the punters waded in.
I couldn’t take a photo of any single bookies after the fifth. It would have been too cruel and traumatic. Instead here are a group of happy punters giving layers what is known in the trade as ‘the rubdown’.
The punters were still wading into the books for the last – too early for the white flags just yet though, Ben Keith’s quote after the last – ‘The economy is on the up!’ Thus proving you can’t keep a good man down.
