Coming up in this week’s eventful Racing Post podcast, aptly named ‘Postcast‘, sponsored by Coral, host Sam Lawrie is joined by Alistair Down, Dave Orton and our very own David Stevens to reflect on the riveting Racing Post Trophy and all the action for the upcoming weekend.

Magical Marcel

Marcel’s magnificence at Doncaster tops the show, as the panel dig deeper into the win by the 33/1 shot ridden by jockey Andrea Atzeni in the final Group One of the flat season.

The Peter Chapple-Hyam (three-times winner in this race) trained horse took the glory ahead of unbeaten, overwhelming odds-on favourite Foundation, saddled by champion jockey Frankie Dettori and Lawrie and company discuss how this marvellous horse got boxed in, being only allowed to finish third.
