Nick is joined by journalist and broadcaster Lydia Hislop to discuss the latest news and events from around the racing world. Reflecting on a soggy, but talent fuelled opening day of Chester’s May Festival, they are joined by Frankie Dettori, who won the Vase aboard Arrest, and by that horse’s breeder, Swordlestown Little’s Des Leadon. Also on the show today, Charlie Johnston talks Derby with regard to his Guineas fifth Dubai Mile, who beat Arrest as a two year old, and Dear My Friend, his Dante runner next week. Nick and Lydia also talk about Chester’s unease over the industry’s premierisation plan, Charles Byrnes’s latest brush with authority, the implications of Marwan Koukash’s bankruptcy, and the renaming of the Ascot sprint for QEII. Tim Kent, Goffs UK MD, drops in to talk about the forthcoming jumps sales at Doncaster.
