IT was Champions Day at Ascot at the weekend and we witnessed some tremendous battles, including the huge defeat of Stradivarius by Kew Gardens.
But who or what has made my latest Good, Bad Ugly column?
It's never happened before, but this week all three categories are filled by a racing couple!
Now Nicola Currie recently stitched me up on ITV, suggesting my Social Stable colleague Chris Hughes was a much more favourable person. I mean the cheek of it. Here is my revenge!
Today, Flat jockey Nicola and top jumps rider Sam Twiston-Davies will pick up keys to their new home of bliss. Not everyone knows this, but Sam and Nicola are a racing couple, in the mould of Tom Marquand and Hollie Doyle.
So I just want to wish both of them good luck. Looking forward to the house-warming party invite.
I have to include in my 'Good' column Sean Levey, who banged in King of Change to land the QEII at Ascot over the weekend. I have a lot of time for Levey, who has had an amazing upbringing in Swaziland and is a thoroughly good egg.
He's on the up, and I think his career is about to take off big time. His talent deserves that.
Sam Twiston-Davies sleep talks. I have no idea what about, but he yaps away in his sleep like a talkshow host. May I suggest separate bedrooms Nicola?
Unless of course you have a fabulous pair of earplugs. Sam also likes to let washing pile up. Like big piles. He's used to family clearing up the mess. I hope Nicola likes washing clothes.
The good news for Sam is that Nicola claims she has no bad habits. That, though, sounds bad to me. Everyone needs at least one bad habit!
Sam Twiston-Davies can cook, but he's fearing it might get ugly if he messes up dinner. Now apparently Nicola is partial to a decent bit of grub. Actually, she likes to eat a lot.
Sam will be putting up overweights this season no doubt. Sam has desperately been swatting up, buying cook books and searching on line for decent recipes.
Currie has a fine set of arm muscles on her – pray for Sam. Pray for Sam. The simple fact is if you live with someone called Currie – you have to expect to eat!
