Nick is joined by David Yates, Newsboy of the Daily Mirror, to discuss the latest news and events from around the racing world. They talk in depth about the 2022 Randox Grand National, and reflect on the warmth felt towards retiring winning amateur rider Sam Waley Cohen and his positive contribution to the industry as well as paying tribute to the brilliant training skills of Emmet Mullins. Nick and Dave also examine the likely reaction to the two fatalities in the race, Discorama and Eclair Surf, discuss how the news of the injuries/fatalities was disseminated, and consider the ramifications of the winning rider’s ban for overuse of the whip. As the season in the UK transitions to the Flat, Nick and Dave discuss this week’s Craven Stakes (ft. Champion 2yo Native Trail), while trainer George Boughey discusses the claims of Cachet in the Nell Gwyn. US agent Joe Miller tells Nick why he is coming to the Tattersalls Breeze Up Sales this week, Simon Sweeting joins the show to talk about the EBF 2yo Finals, and NBC’s Matt Bernier gives a rundown of the weekend’s key Kentucky Derby trials.
