    I think your favourite Bond women are tied to what age you are when the films come out or you first see them but an oft overlooked couple are Daniela Bianchi in From Russia With Love and Sophie Marceau (villain and token nanny at the same time).

    Anyway, away from my specialist subject involving teenage pervy afternoon matinees, I've put a double on Two Taffs (3:50 Ayr) and Silent Steps (5:25 Ayr) as well as Jersey Bean.

    My home town hosts Scotland's largest beer festival (and a food festival) this weekend so I'm hoping for some extra ale counters.

    Roast beef, red cabbage and chipped potatoes. Thoroughly satisfying. 9/10 (one point docked for a line of gristle running through the beef).

    Kedgeree. 6/10. Better than it usually is but still somewhat lacking.

    There are some huge prices around for Vosne, I see. 40/1 in several places. The Souede/Munir partnership seem intent on capturing the prize though with 3 out of the first 5 in the market wearing their silks!

    Meanwhile, if you go on ‘Sporting Life’s’ homepage right now you will see a picture of Mr Henderson looking most boisterous!

    As a TRFC fan, I should really be shouting for Jim Rockford in this Newbury opener, but the dart has landed on Qaaraat ( Carrot? )
    I also like Gracious Diana in the 3.40 at that racecourse.
    Interested to see, as already mentioned, how Varian's reps run too.

    Have to wait til this evening for Johnston/Norton ...

    Good Luck all.

    5/1 for Raheen house 3.05 seems a silly price for racing post trophy 4th against a Yarmouth maiden winner, decent sized bet for me.
