    Seabass - I think this is the year a female jockey wins it for the first time.

    I have managed to restrain myself this year, instead of the ~£40 usual bets, I am just in the work sweepstakes for Junior and Swing Bill.

    EDIT: OK, I lie. I now have bets on State of Play, Cappa Bleu and Ballabriggs.

    Two horses (one of them being one of the favourates and a wonderful racehorse) were fataly wounded. Sad really.
