Best of the Best

  • I HAVE to take my hat off to the board of directors of the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland for its recent decision to make a huge £500,000 commitment to the light horse section at Ingliston by investing in an all-weather surface for Ring 6.

  • 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.
