    Michael's Pick second in the La Touche at 100/1. Had a tenner EW, and he won me a nice EW on day one of the festival at a big price. Turned out again just 48 hours later over four and quarter miles and he ran brilliantly. Only backed him Tuesday because he has my name

    Not as impressive as Singing Banjo, however, who won the three and a quarter mile cross country on Tuesday then the La Touche today. Remarkable.

    Hopefully Billaway can pick up a win later, I’ll also be taking a punt on Agusta Gold in the 16:50 too. Quite disappointed not to be seeing Bob Olinger ride again today.

    I'm scunnered. I had Bob Ollinger, Honeysuckle, Energumene as a treble ante-post. Hopefully Honeysuckle will at least give me the double later.

    Really steadied into the last there but came away well, fantastic horse!

    Absolutely, I got worried at the last, but what a horse she is. She could finish up as one of the all time greats.

    Billaway has cost me a fortune twice this year when a beaten favourite. Was tempted to give him another chance but thought better of it. Glad I did.

    Any tips for the 2000 Guineas? It looks wide open.

    It was a great race, though, and a photo finish.

    What a blinder he ran. I didn't consider backing him, I must admit.

    Brilliant, beating all the big guns at 22/1.

    Old See Double You, 18 years old and just ran at Ayr in a mud bath. I think I've mentioned him before; what a great old campaigner. A 50/1 shot won it.

    Great old horse, it just wasn't his ground today at all.

    Yes great to see a horse that age still enjoying racing. He must have incredible fitness.

    Got my tickets for next year's Guineas today.

    £60 a pop for the Premier Enclosure wasn't bad imo considering what you pay for Club at Cheltenham these days.

    PB, or anyone else, can you recommend any really good racing books? I've read a couple of Robin Oakley's and enjoyed them. Are there any classic must reads of the genre?

    McIlvanney on Horseracing although it's a long time since I read it.

    There are some great autobiographies as well, Timmy Murphy's is probably my favourite.

    AP McCoy's autobiography is a good read. Same with Kieron Fallon, the latter probably the better of the 2.As mentioned above McIlvanney on Horse Racing is a bit of a classic.

    The Grey Horse by Richard Burridge about Desert Orchid, Arkle:The Legend of Himself and Horse Racing Heroes by Peter O'Sullevan were all enjoyable reads as well.

    21 day ban for Havlin. Deliberately holds his horse up around the final bend.

    Stowell just breezed up at odds on at Ascot when given a proper ride.

    Graham Bradley done his autobiography a good few years ago, call “the wayward lad” highly recommend.
