    Quite amazing Jonjo O'Neill would give a major interview with the RP and not mention, the owner of the yard and his biggest supplier of horses, J P McManus, has something changed ?

    When I was a small boy, (a while ago, admittedly) any bet combining four or more individual bets was called an Accumulator, "Accum" for short.

    When did this change to "Acca" ?

    Battaash by a street. Ten Sovereigns never got close.

    The winner broke the Course Record.

    Ten Sovereigns is Favourite for the Nunthorpe but ITV says that no one is backing it.

    "The Lads" must be on.

    A curious quote from the Racing Post's preview of tomorrow's Irish Derby.

    "Completing the Ballydoyle team is Il Paradiso, who was declared for the race at the request of part-owner John Magnier to bring the number of runners to eight, meaning there would be three places on offer for those betting each-way."

    There's a bet of £160,000 gone onto Lope y Fernandez at 5/4 in the first at Royal Ascot.

    EDIT another £80,000 just before the off.

    FURTHER EDIT and it's beaten by four or five lengths.

    Today, £200,000 was lumped on Japan in the King Edward at 5/4. He skated in.

    Afterwards Derrick Smith said that the win wasn't a surprise, the price was.

    The interviewer: "Did you avail of it?"

    Smith "We did"


    Smith and Tabor are not afraid of big bets, both are former bookies, gambling is second nature to them.

    This is "virtual racing" and as the runners completed the first furlong, the race reader told us that some of the horses had gone over to the far side because the jockeys weren't sure where the better going is.

    In a virtual race.....

    Anthony Van Dyke won by a half a length from Madhmoon who was a nose ahead of Japan. Broome was fourth, a short head back with Sir Dragonet, the Favourite another short head back in fifth.
    AO'B has 7 Epsom Derby winners and he is only 49. He could be training for another 30 years. Unique, a genius, a legend.
