John Gosden hasn’t complained so much about a bad draw for one of his runners in at least a fortnight and sends a strong team to Berkshire headed by Champion Stakes favourite Jack Hobbs who is looking to pick up a million quid for connections and seal the deal for the Newmarket handler in the trainer’s championship.
And we’ve assembled our own crack team to make the day – and Channel 4’s coverage – go that little bit smoother.
A 15/1 double for Matt ‘I wish ATR still had Ascot’ Chapman means Mr Yeeehaaa! brings the bragging rights into the weekend where he’s joined by Turftalk Tommy, Shitetalk Paddy and our elusive racing trader who have just one thing on their minds.
Winners. And lots of them before the Flat season goes into hibernation.
