We’ve teamed up with BetVictor’s Charlie McCann to preview the day’s racing. As we suggested earlier in the week connections of last week’s impressive York winner Lah Ti Dar appear to be leaning towards next month’s Group 1 Prix Vermeille and the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in October rather than the St Leger.Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber’s racing manager Simon Marsh advised they had not yet discounted the final classic of the season, but they don’t consider their three-year-old a stayer and John Gosden’s filly remains 8/1 with BetVictor for the Paris showpiece. The flat turf racing in Britain is nothing out of the ordinary, but at Tipperary I’m looking forward to seeing the second run of Dermot Weld’s Tarnawa (5.25) who finished third from the worst of the draw at Galway on debut. The selection holds a Group 1 entry next month and this daughter of Shamardal looks sure to appreciate today’s better ground which was … [Read more...] about I Can Fly can reverse the form at Tipperary

I’ve always been a late developer, so it’s no great surprise that I find myself undertaking work experience as a journalist at the grand old age of 37. After many years working in the criminal justice and voluntary sectors, I realised that what I’d always wanted to do – write – was becoming a distant pipe dream. Being a firm believer that ridicule is nothing to be scared of, I therefore put on my big-girl boots and jumped into the newsroom at The Independent.

This was all in addition to holding down a full-time job – proof of my passion for the work.
