Nick – recording from Melbourne ahead of the Melbourne Cup – is joined by RTE and Racing TV broadcaster Jane Mangan to discuss the latest news and developments from around the racing world. In Australia, at the Carbine Club annual Derby eve lunch, Nick talks to best friends and ex flatmates James Ferguson and Ed Crisford about their Cup hopefuls who currently sit 1-2 in the betting for the race that stops a nation. He also catches up with breeder Adam Sangster, from one of the most famous racing dynasties of all, on why he emigrated and why the country is such an innovative force in global bloodstock. Royal Ascot winning breeder Sean Hawkins tells Nick about the thrill of homebred High Emoceon getting a run in the big race. Closer to home, Jamie Moore looks ahead to Goshen’s chasing debut at Ascot on Saturday, while Jane examines the Weatherbys Return of Mares, gives her view on the Charlie Hall Chase and has news of ins and outs at next weekend’s Breeders Cup.
