CHATROOM; The best of your emails.

Something for RFC to do The Racing Post internet survey on what racegoers think of the catering service was no surprise to me as a regular racegoer. The vast majority of punters have to put up with unhealthy fast food that will be overpriced and has to be eaten standing up. Maybe Racing For Change could do something useful and set a minimum standard of affordable catering to be provided by racecourses and available to all.

Gerry, North London Everyone's a winner As much as pounds 65,000 guaranteed for the Group 3 at Windsor with prize-money for the first five home. How many runners? Five!

Brian, Paddock Wood Memory's too short Re Sunday's Moyglare: Memory's form has not been franked at the top level once. She's a good horse, but her winning distances suggest maybe not as good as people think. I would be taking one of the Aidan O'Brien horses each-way at the prices - Memory is far too short!

marcojones Day to remember Great article on Buckfastleigh in the Post, bringing back great memories. I had my first winner there on bank holiday Monday, 1958 with a great old chaser called Nugget ridden by Eric Foster. The other Foster boys Johnny, David and Gerry and Billy Williams all rode in the race and we won at 20-1. I led the horse up and he was trained by myself and my then husband Alec Jack. It was a never-to-be-forgotten day and the surviving Fosters will remember it well.
