Just utter nonsense

Apologies if my comments upset Bazza and John Kerr, but placing a young jockey in the same league as a multiple Group-race winner and multiple champion jockey is just utter nonsense. C'mon lads - get real.

Pat Brennan, Navan

A Classic more likely

To be champion you must have a big yard providing plenty of rides and have around 180 winners. Hayley Turner isn't getting anywhere near that number.

She'll never be champion unless she is first jockey to one of the bigger stables.

She has more chance of riding a Classic winner, though, given a suitable mount.

Simon, Somerset

Getting the hump Not content with sub-standard thoroughbred racing, Wolverhampton now brings us horse-and-cart racing. When's the first camel race planned?

Joe Smart

Unhappy as a sandboy

Monday to Saturday, 23 meetings, with ten strolls-along-the-sands providing bookmakers with easy pickings as a prelude to the continuing betrayal of winter jumping.

A Herrick-White

Worse in the old days I cannot totally agree with Joe Black with regard to value. Value is a highly subjective matter. If he feels it is bad now, then it was far worse a few years ago when we had betting tax and no betting exchanges.

Graham Smith

Pump up the volume

Both first races at Hamilton and Lingfield had tight and exciting finishes, yet stay-at-home viewers could hear neither result announced, diminishing the drama.

Please, ATR and RUK, sort it out.

Colin, Port Talbot

Unwelcome clash

How have Kempton and Lingfield ended up on the same day today? Unbelievable.

Big Dave Osborne, Enfield
