Listen in, listen Ian!
Yesterday the gauntlet was thrown down (that is to say, I snatched the gauntlet from carsmilesteve's hand and dropped it on the floor but whatevs.

So, I went to the bookie's at lunchtime and came up with:

2.05 - Diamond Harry
2.40 - Cooldine
4.00 - Lough Derg
4.40 - Giorgio Quercus

Man, I've not been to the races for ages. I used to go loads with my dad when I was little, and then I carrried on going a bit after leaving home but I've not been since I moved to London. Any Londonists fancy a trip to one of the local courses some time?

Aw, man I'd love to - I'm pretty much glued to the Cheltenham Festival on Ch4 during the day. But what with the whole not being able to do anything thing, alas, no.

You could invite a Small, Select Group of Friends round and place bets online. It could be like Cheltenham in your living room, only more refined and with better decor.

Also, you could strap roller-skates to the cats and place bets on them.

It would be more fun placing bets on the length of survival of anyone who tried to strap roller skates on Anton.
