26 The price Bond Playboy hit in running on Betfair in the 6f apprentice handicap at Wolverhampton, when O'Hara went for a gap up the rail that wasn't there inside the final furlong. Jilly Why drifted over to the rail, which closed the gap completely and allowed O'Hara to switch his mount in time and get up close home to stun those who got stuck in to Jilly Why at 1.02

200 The price 25-1 winner Merchant Navy touched en route to winning the 6f nursery at Pontefract - the biggest-priced in-running scorer of the day

253 According to RUK, the number of winners that Wanderson d'Avilia has ridden. The Brazilian's first ride in Britain saw him part company with Mister Cafnex at the halfway stage of the 1 m2f maiden at Pontefract. Hopefully he will be back soon

855 The number of days since Geordieland won a race. The quirky grey
