  • 0900: Race is on to back my fancy Jamesway in the Dash. He’s been put up by Pricewise. Our sponsors Sky Bet are paying five places and you can check out Richard Fahey’s thoughts on Jamesway’s chances too.

    0855: Dramatic start to the day in the press room, collapsing chairs and all the royal correspondents are here. Nicholas Witchell is shorter than I imagined.

    0845: A very good morning and welcome to Investec Derby day at Epsom. I’m Dave Ord and I’ll be your guide for the day – and it’s started well. Three rashers in this morning’s sandwich.

    Last night I drew a line in the ale sand in Crawley. My regular reader, Steve in Coventry, will be aware that I’ve long championed golden session bitters. Not any more. They’re becoming too floral in a bid to appease and win over lager suppers. So now I will be mostly drinking best bitters.

    Hardy’s was last night’s choice and was excellent – as was the lamb rogan josh it helped wash down. The latter could have been a mistake, we’ll see.

    So what do we make of Camelot? I hope he wins and wins well and then goes for the Ladbrokes’St Leger but he looks an awfully short price. How will Main Sequence not hit the frame? Has to, simply has to.

    Anway as ever your emails are craved at [email protected]. Wonderful day ahead.
