The best of your emails Good run - but that's all A decent performance by Grandouet but nothing more than that. I'd want to see how Spirit Son and Zarkandar get on before having a punt on the Champion Hurdle. I don't think Willie Mullins will be quaking in his boots just yet!

Salovell Medermit catches eye Really impressed with Medermit's run. He got hampered a few times but I still thought he was going to win it. Think there will be a big pot for him soon.

Ja**Too little, too late Huurah! Doncaster is on, and after only four inspections. Pity the last one was at 11.30 when it is too late to set off. That reminds me, I must book those pantomime tickets.

Marten, North Yorkshire Optimism misleading Doncaster's Friday night upbeat bulletin of a "purely precautionary" 7.30 inspection turns into farce with racing only given the go-ahead after a fourth inspection at 11.30. Do they get special upbeat weather forecasts purely for racecourses, as the rest of the area knew of a sharp frost? R Stornaway Flame's fine record I enjoyed reading the article marking the 50th anniversary of Arkle's debut. However, we should not entirely forget the winner of that race, Lady Flame. Not only was she the dam of King Flame, who won the 1975 National Hunt Handicap Chase at Cheltenham, but also the third dam of the 2008 Aintree Grand National winner Comply or Die.

Nigel Pullen What a waste of space Another fiasco at Cheltenham on that cross-country nonsense - why do they bother? If they want to make use of that middle space, I suggest a golf driving range. That's all it's fit for.
