The horse racing trainer Henry Cecil has died aged 70. He enjoyed his best ever season last year with the brilliant unbeaten Frankel. He had been having treatment for cancer for the past few years.

    I heard this on the news at lunchtime - the poor chap was pretty poorly. Bad timing for him tho - Ascot starts soon doesn't it? He'll be missed. DD
