Jamie Moore patting Sire De Grugy before he had even crossed the finish line, then leaning down and kissing him on the neck!

Oh phoenix, he loves that horse so much [rides him every day]. I've reached the point where I can hardly bear to see him race in case anything happens to him. Jamie rode a horse called Fieppes Shuffle years ago that won over Christmas. We'd gone to Buxton for the day and I didn't hear the result till we arrived at our lodgings and I went mental [he was a big price]. Fieppes Shuffle ran in German Lakes races, where they have to swim as part of the race [honestly!] and his stable name was Flipper. So I've loved Jamie ever since. He's so much nicer than the surly Ryan [shy indeed; he's just a misery]. I'm so pleased for them getting this horse. I got quite weepy when they showed the replay cause he reminded me of Dessie the way he attacked his fences. I hope he beats Sprinter Sacre at Cheltenham; I think he's probably my favourite horse now.
