Nick is joined by broadcaster Rishi Persad – returning from a busy summer of sporting commitments for the BBC – to discuss the day’s national and international racing news. While lamenting its apparent lack of interest this side of the channel, Nick and Rishi look forward to a potentially stunning edition of this weekend’s Prix du Moulin at Longchamp, which could feature the unbeaten Baaeed throwing his huge reputation into the jaws of the super-tenacious and talented Poetic Flare. With the assistance of Baaeed’s trainer William Haggas, Nick and Rishi try to establish the true merit of this exciting colt. Also in this edition, there is discussion of Irish Champions Weekend, with an important contribution on crowd numbers from HRI CEO Brian Kavanagh, plus a look ahead to Haydock’s Sprint Cup. Nick and Rishi also discuss the latest contentious stewarding issues with BHA Chief Regulatory Officer Brant Dunshea.
