Best of the Best

Best of the Best

  • Despite the euphoria expressed in last month's column about my incredible trip to the Cheltenham Festival, I can't say that it wasn't a hassle getting there and back.

  • There's a crisp £50 note sitting in my wallet which I'm loathe to pend as its very presence evokes wonderful memories of a recent visit to the Cheltenham Festival and, yes, it was my return for a bet on the winner of The Betfred Champion Gold Cup.

  • The Stirling Bull Sales was less of an eye-opener that I expected when I made my first ever visit to the famous event earlier this month.

  • AT A time of year which is depressing for more reasons than one, it came as light relief to receive the accompanying photograph which had winged its way via the Internet from the other side of the world.

  • While expectations run high every year at the Horse of the Year Show no one could have predicted the success of Scottish exhibitors at this year's event which was impressive by any standard.
