Riches need not be an embarrassment, as Nicky Henderson knows. On the day jump racing emerged from its shutdown, the Lambourn-based trainer added to his stable's formidable armoury in the novice chase division when Mad Max made a most satisfactory start to his career over fences. The giant eight-year-old, 5-6 favourite for the Novices' Chase, put himself right into the Cheltenham equation with a near-perfect display of jumping under Barry Geraghty and some eye-catching changes of gear on ground rendered testing as rain followed melting snow.

Purple Rose of Cairo, Bullets over Broadway." On the other hand, he insists, "The way people latched onto Manhattan was irrational... I've done better pictures than Annie Hall." Allen expresses astonishment that his film Hollywood Ending, never released in this country, "was not thought of as a first-rate comedy". This reviewer agrees. It is hilarious.
