It’s Galway and Goodwood time of the year and after a quick search for tips around the office yielded such gems as:
“Be warned, most clutch bags these days won’t fit a naggin of vodka”
“Adding the words ‘I say’ to the beginning or end of each sentence will instantly make you more aristocratic by 85%”
“So will a panama hat and some casual racism”
“If you give the barman the vague impression you’ll sleep with him, you’ll get served quicker every time” (thanks for that one Paddy!)
“Be careful watching when watching related videos on YouTube. Just because the original one you were watching was SFW, it doesn’t mean that the next one will be.”
It wasn’t quite what we were looking for, so we enlisted the services of Racing Post tipster, Mark ‘The Couch’ Winstanley to mark our cards for the week ahead. Enjoy and feel free to leave your own Galway and Goodwood tips in the comments section below – whether they be about actual racing or merely survival in general. There’s no prize up for grabs, but the smug sense of ‘I told you so’ should suffice when your pick bolts up.
