Neil Hannon, late of Devine Comedy has recorded an album devoted to cricket with Thomas Walsh - they call themselves ‘The Duckworth Lewis Method’. As a prelude to this summer’s Ashes series I am sure all cricket and music fans will enjoy this unusual project. Listen to the uploaded tracks and take a look at the artwork on the DLM MySpace - a celebration of cricket in all its forms. Thanks Neil but also please get back with the Devine Comedy – one of the greatest bands ever.
My other tipster says: 2.20 - now that 2 of the leading fancies are non-runners then yes, although Brennan has a good record when he rides for Tom George.
2.50 - awful race, you've picked McCoy again but this time for Jimmy Frost … but David Pipe trains in the same area & would know how good Frost's horse is, & Hitaaf was highly-tried before an injury.
3.50 - tough handicap, your pick is going for hat-trick & has good jockey on board. But I like Henderson's Stellino or even no. 4 I Hear A Symphony of Philip Hobbs' - horses' form doesn't look brill BUT he's been running in better races.
4.50 - nice price for you BUT I'd go for no. 2 to win as I wouldn't oppose a horse of Nicholl's in a bumper at Newton Abbott, especially when owned by Roach.
Despite tour results, Andy Flower, will be named 'team director', aka coach, today as head of a short list of one! After ‘leaving no stone unturned’ the ECB will appoint England's current caretaker coach, Andy Flower, as the permanent team director in Ashes year!
