The Five Lays Rollover Daily Dabble
14 November 2006
This was a much less stressful day as the very first of my picks - Plume d'Oudaries - lost. So no rollover needed and an easy £5 into the treats tin. I was tempted to start a new rollover chain, but this is against the game plan and I resisted.

Todays selection
There are quite a few other races which are borderline, but here are the current picks:
12.30 Southwell: Jost Van Dyke at 2.66 with Cherri Fosfate at 4.90 9 runners
12.40 Warwick: Mr Aitch at 2.62 with Royal Attraction at 5.00 18 runners
13.00 Southwell: Jabbata at 2.66 with Bodden Bay at 4.90 14 runners
13.30 Hexham: Flint River at 2.66 with Balian at 4.40 11 runners
15.50 Hexham: Roc Tredudon at 2.34 with Nortonthorpe Lad at 5.00 8 runners
Did you know that the most successful left-handed golfer in the world, Phil Mickelson, is right-handed in everything else he does?

Non-golf things that I didn't know last week

Patrick McGoohan - of 'Danger Man' and 'The Prisoner' fame - is American (or at least American-born with Irish parents).

He has turned down some of the all-time great parts: 'The Saint' and 'James Bond' - apparently on moral grounds; 'Gandalf' in The Lord of the Rings and 'Dumbledore' in the Harry Potter films, both for health reasons.

Apparently, the last episode of 'The Prisoner' was so controversial that McGoohan and his family had to leave Britain.
