Tough as teak hurdler Lough Derg is in action this afternoon at Cheltenham
Cheltenham plays host to it's first meeting of the new season this afternoon, and we are represented by no fewer than six runners.  Among them is ever popular hurdler Lough Derg who has to shoulder top weight in the competitive handicap.  He has won over an amazing £360,000 during his career, and his popularity is largely due to his never-say-die and granite constitution - he is a real trier and unsurprisingly Tom Scudamore's favourite.  You may recall that Tom burst into tears after the pair had won their first National Spirit hurdle at Fontwell - I have cried over a few horses myself in the past, but it is normally when they have been beaten!

I see that it is Reg Lomas' 79th birthday today.  Some of you may be asking who Reg Lomas is, well he was head groundsman at Cheltenham racecourse for many years.  Peter Scudamore would always ask Reg where the best ground was and he was a mine of information.  Most jockeys used to face a tiring walk around the course to locate the best ground, but not Scud - Reg gave the best going reports around.  Anyway, many happy returns Reg!

There's a great prize to be won in today's Post - the competition winner will receive a stay in the Bovey Castle Hotel, which coincidentally has a great golf course!  Also included is a day at Exeter races to watch the Haldon Gold Cup - all you have to do is answer a simple question to be in with a chance of winning this great prize - I wouldn't mind having a go myself!
