    I’ve got a good tip for the 2:30 at Wolverhampton if anyone is interested.

    During over 30 years as an active punter, I have never once backed a winner at Wolver. Or Southwell for that matter.

    I thought it was about who can change a set of tyres the fastest?..

    That and who can make it to the first corner first. Then 90 celebratory laps.

    Can't think of anything more boring and definitely not a sport. <ok>

    I once went to Bristol to visit my girlfriend for the weekend, said hi to her, drove to Chepstow and blew all the money I had on a series of donkeys. She was surprisingly understanding when I got back. Gave up gambling on the nags after that.

    Bit boring now but F1 has been a great sport over the years.

    60s, 70, 80's and early nineties particularly good.

    Love motor sport - particularly watching it at the circuit.

    I loved Rush, the movie about James Hunt and Nikki Lauder. I do vaguely remember them both when they were racing too, but I never really found the sport interesting to watch, even then. Moto GP, on the other hand...

    Went to a qualifying day at Silverstone a long time ago. Nigel Mansell was driving. It was a wet day so their times counted for nothing as the times from the drier day before decided grid positions. It was one ****ing boring day out.

    I still go racing a couple of times a year. Went to the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket in May, and am going the Cheltenham for the International Hurdle in December.

    A brilliant day out, but I don't have the time or inclination for the intensive form study required to give you a chance againsty the bookies. Still nothing beats he buzz of backing a horse you are absolutely certain is the best in the race, and watching it get the job done with the roar of the crowd in your ears.

    I can remember my first proper bet. Belmont King in the Scottish National. £5 stake at 16-1. I was a student at the time so the winnings lasted me about three months...

    If you liked that then given the movie Senna a go if you haven't already.

    Excellent film.

    I think F1 is great, but I am probably a bit biased as it provided me with a good living for many years. For me it was the best job I ever had, despite the intense pressure The experience of being at the track is phenomenal, but you can see so much more on TV these days
