    What an amazing pleasure it was to be there live to watch BIG BUCK'S charge up the hill to win his third World Hurdle yesterday. There were a couple of moments where it looked liked GRAND CRUS would get him, but he just kept finding more in a supremely brave and classy performance. For me, that was the sporting highlight of the week. BIG BUCK'S is truly an all-time great.

    It was also amazingly cool to see JUNIOR, who I'd seen win a flat race at Royal Ascot, win a jump race at Cheltenham. Next stop for him: The Grand National at Aintree. Perhaps the connections should pay to send me to Aintree. I am his good luck charm, after all.

    But before I start planning my trip to Liverpool, there is still one day left of the Festival. And it's not just any day, it's Gold Cup Day. I have two Gold Cup stories to tell. I'll tell one via video (you have to watch this twice. Once for my story, once for the dude heckling me):

    I'll be back in a bit with the other Gold Cup related story and also with some thoughts on today's tricky card.
