Some good winners on Sunday; well done. Loose Buttons raised a point on the rules regarding first past the post/official result. Didn’t think of it at the start (which I should have), but my inclination is to settle on official result. If there are strong feelings otherwise, please let me know.
If I've left anyone out, I apologise; please leave a message on this thread and I'll update.
Finally, as a boy of 17 into both journalism and racing, I recall my delight and astonishment at the quality of an interview with Lester in The Observer by Kenneth Harris, who was not a sportswriter and who got the best out of his subjects by never taking notes, nor recordings. He simply wrote the piece from memory straight after the interview. Over the years I searched online for it (I originally clipped it and put it in a racing scrap book). I finally found it. 52 years on it remains the best piece of racing writing I've read.
