Amazingly, there’s hardly been a Grade One winner this winter that doesn’t know the taste of Africa’s finest horsefeed, and Sunday’s Mercury Sprint was no exception. First place went to Herman Brown’s War Artist, second to Charles Laird’s Rebel King, and the trifecta was completed by Sean Tarry’s champion, Mythical Flight.

It can’t all be coincidence, we all know that, but there’s a good deal more to it, quite obviously.
