RP TODAY'S BIG TALKING POINT
"LEE MOTTERSHEAD on a familiar scenario in the big race at Sandown Park today.

IMPERIAL POWER EYES ANOTHER MASTERPIECE.

"ALMOST three whole seasons have passed since we all saw MASTER OF ARTS finishing tailed- off on what was only his second outing over hurdles. In some ways, he is hardly an obvious challenger for a handicap gamble, but the seven -year -old has been backed off the boards for his belated jumping comeback. Given the race selected for his return, he  just has to be trained by a man called Pipe. ....

NICK (Lord Snooty) LUCK
Host Presenter
NICK introduces us to this morning's Guest Star Bloodstock Agent ANTHONY BROMLEY  an interesting insight into what it takes to buy the right sort of a horse for racing,  for starters.  Posing the question do you need a bloodhorse literate person to carry out a task as this? Or will a bloodhorse illiterate  person manage this just as well? Another zone of horseracing of particular key importance, and of massive interest in the piecing together of this almighty jigsaw that is horseracing?
Nick the power packed presenter who brings everything together.















GUEST STAR Anthony Bromley Bloodstock Agent
"Anthony Bromley, born in 1968, is the son of Shropshire stud owners, Bill and Di Bromley of Wood Farm Stud, which has been one of the pre-eminent National Hunt Studs in the UK over the last 20 years, standing the likes of the stallions Sir Harry Lewis, Classic Cliché and more recently Lucarno.

Anthony joined David Minton Bloodstock from school in 1987, during which time he also gained valuable experience with spells at Cheveley Park Stud, Shadwell Stud (UK) and at Lane’s End in Kentucky. In 1995 David Minton Bloodstock was taken over by the British Bloodstock Agency and Anthony became a UK Director. In 2001 David and Anthony left the BBA and established Highflyer Bloodstock.

Anthony is married to Anna (daughter of the legendary Rutland-based vet and stud owner Richard Watson) and they have two sons, Joe (2000) and Benjamin (2002). Anthony currently sits on a number of committees / councils, namely the Federation of Bloodstock Agents Council, the BHA’s Industry Committee and the BHA’s Jump Race Development Group."

SIMON HOLT CALLING THE HORSES Bloodhorse Illiterate
Born in Swindon the son of a railway fireman, his family had no connection with the horse racing world. At sixteen years old he became apprentice to Lambourn trainer Fred Winter and so began his career as a jockey. He rode a total of 1,138 winners, his last being in April 1985. During the course of his career he was NH Champion Jockey seven times.
After retiring Francome was awarded the MBE in 1986 for services to racing. He was a trainer for 18 months before becoming a TV presenter for Channel 4's horse racing broadcasts. Like another former jockey, Dick Francis, Francome has taken to writing works of fiction. His books have featured on the bestseller lists.

 The Imperial Cup Handicap Hurdle Sandown Park's this afternoon 23 runners go to post. Sure to be a competitive race, but can MASTER OF ARTS partner TOM SCUDAMORE
"Jim McGrath has worked in horse racing throughout his adult life. Having failed in a brief quest to become a jockey in the summer of 1971, he joined the Timeform Organisation in Halifax, West Yorkshire after leaving school three years later. During a thirty-four and a half year stint there, he fulfilled many positions, from trainee race-card assistant to chairman.
"A successful owner-breeder, who currently has interests in seven horses in training, with Tim Easterby, Richard Fahey and Mark Johnston, as well as a broodmare at the Curragh, he is also a non-executive director of Haydock Park and was recently appointed a trustee of BHEST.

Hurdles to overcome with all eyes on Triumph contenders
"SEVENTEEN days and counting. Cheltenham tantalises us with its nearness and across Britain and Ireland lorry loads of cotton wool are being transported to the yards of anxious trainers, keen to keep festival aspirants wrapped up and safe'
