Very well done John987: you certainly know how to make a debut! For all future winners - and we wish you many - just post again after the result highlighting the win and the SP: great work.
No Thursday winners that I can see. If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
Great ride by the vastly under rated Kev Jones to get the leg swinger Fakir home on stable debut at Fontwell..
Anyone beginning to get the feeling that we might by about to witness another improbable scene in the melodrama titled Frankie: The Movie? Torquator Tasso's chances of defending his crown in the Arc look to grow stronger with each passing day and every drop of rain on the Bois de Boulogne. I must say I would have a quiet cheer if he were to win, even though I haven't backed the German colt. Why? Because I can claim to be one of the very few who defended Dettori in June when all the Tricoteuses of racing were dancing on the grave not only of his first-jockey status with Gosden but his entire racing career. Not only that, as they clacked their knitting needles they denounced John Gosden as a bully, a coward and a hypocrite, to name the politer epithets used by the Mob. They made the false claim that the yard's owners were demanding Dettori be sacked. Utterly wrong. When I said they were misinformed about the character of Gosden they piled on me. When I said Frankie would be back riding for Clarehaven within short order I was pilloried. Well, I'm not usually one for saying I told you so, but . . . I told you so. That is what happened; the Frankie and Johnnie show resumed as usual. And time and again, those who do so end up with egg on their faces.
Let's not make the same mistake on this forum. Let there be a range of opinion and debate to and fro without the stifling overview of an officious referee and his whistle. We need more alternative perspectives and more colour to keep this alive. Surely we should be treated as grownups?

Really missed the bullet from Hurricane Ian, but was surprised at the tree damage even though wind speed was only 60 mph here, albeit for a number of hours. Tree limbs (from trees in neighbor's yard) successfully lobbed over fence..
