(Mac) McCririck taken ill at
Wondering what 'New Pope Francis' Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina will comprehend of SPRINTER SACRE winning The Queen Mother Champion Chase this afternoon? Will 'New Pope Francis' recognise SPRINTER SACRE'S true life and times story? Of the people who share in the true life and times SPRINTER SACRE'S story? Of the people who were minding SPRINTER SACRE at Cheltenham Festival Championships all day today, and taking him home to Lambourn safe and sound after his wonderful win? And the every day minding of SPRINTER SACRE within Team Henderson? Team Henderson who put the Great back into Britain every single day. A Britain however that is very far from great, a Rip Off Britain infact, in a very sorry state indeed. With billionaire bankers ripping off the tax payers each and every day, courtesy of out of touch politicians in a failed political system belonging in the dark ages. We see the huge crowds in St Peters Square today awaiting for news of who the New Pope is to be. We also see similar huge crowds at Cheltenham Festival having a day out for a change. And what a day out it was.
Taking a closer look
Clare meets up with Paul Nicholls at home Ditcheat this morning to take a look at UNIONISTE who challenges this afternoon for the 2.40 RSA Chase (Grade 1 Novices Chase over 3m). A hot race. Will it go to Team Nicholls, Team Mullins? or Team Henderson? What do you think? Don't forget this is a Novice Chase so all these horses still have a lot to learn.
Mick out on the track again this morning meets up with Simon Claisse Clerk of the Course checking up on how the turf is coping with the extreme weather conditions. Weather a nightmere scenario in horseracing.
Mick meets up with Nigel Twiston-Davies and THE NEW ONE at home, he challenges this afternoon for the 2.05 Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle over 2m5f. It is as well to note that all these runners are novice hurdlers and all have still a lot to learn, this race for 4 year olds up. Just starting out on the hurdling racing road.
