Nick is joined by Racing Post senior writer Lee Mottershead to discuss the latest news and events from around the racing world today. With the weather grinding the domestic racing scene to a halt, Nick and Lee consider the Irish action over the weekend and begin with Henry de Bromhead’s suggestion of Cheltenham’s Mares’ hurdle as a possibility for Honeysuckle. They also discuss the goings on at Newcastle on Saturday, the latest jockeys’ complaints over whip reforms, the return of Energumene, and wrap up the action from Hong Kong. Nick talks to Richard Kingscote, who is bound for Florida to ride this winter, and also catches up with trainer Tom George, who is looking forward to bringing Il Est Francais to the UK soon. Jacob Webb Prichard talks us through the latest Auctav sale, while Alicia Hughes gives her commentary on the guilty plea in the case of US trainer Jason Servis.
