The winner, a handsome chestnut, is owned by Steve Preston, whose friends and family marked his 50th birthday by starting a fund which, they told him, could be used only for buying a racehorse, a lifetime ambition for the Runcorn man. He approached Moore Sr, who agreed to find a horse for him.

Jamie found the horse on a scouting trip to France. Sire De Grugy had been passed over by a number of English trainers but the jockey was so immediately impressed by him that he phoned his father with instructions to buy him as soon as possible and get him back to Sussex.

Maybe you are getting mixed up - the jockey wore red and blue the family and friends had red and blue scarves on. They even gave Camilla a Red and Blue scarf - to which the Channel 4 commentator said she had always been a Palace fan (lol)

They scarves and the jockey colours weren't in Tesco colours!

No, he said that the trainer of the horse is a Brighton fan.

Doesn't that explain why the horse can run so fast?

At last the issue of burger quality is addressed.

That's right, still I knew I'd read a wrong un was involved somewhere
