Sixty not out

Sixty tomorrow.

To celebrate, Mrs Tips booked me a breakfast / stable tour at Robin Dickin's yard this morning. A brilliant insight - but I've only just finished writing up my notes.

All of which means I haven't studied form for Cheltenham tomorrow.

A birthday tip? I'm a big fan of the Wolf Of Windlesham but, in receipt of eight pounds and with a race under his belt a fortnight ago, Gibralfaro is the play against favourite Adrien Du Pont in the 3.00 race...

On one's birthday a greeting of 'Many happy returns!' is oft received; unfortunately there were no returns from my suggested wager in Cheltenham's Masterson Holdings Hurdle.

Gibralfaro (2/1) was close enough if good enough two from home but stablemate Sceau Royale (9/2) destroyed his opponents with an impressive-looking turn of foot, beating Leoncavallo (12/1) eleven lengths with the selection staying on to pip favourite Adrien Du Pont for third.
