For neither the first nor the last time on a racecourse, the sound of bubbles bursting was the accompaniment to the cheers for the big-race winner. Here yesterday you could add the riffling of racecard pages as those in the grandstand checked the identity of that unheralded beast in mauve who had just shot clear of his rivals through the final furlong of the 2,000 Guineas. The answer was 33-1 shot Makfi, the sole French raider in the line-up. Nearly four lengths behind him the even-money favourite St Nicholas Abbey could do no better than sixth.

But he was half a length behind his own Richard Hannon stablemate Dick Turpin, who nicked victory in the final strides.

The Scottish musician has long brought a literary sensibility to his full-on sound – the aforementioned number is partly a tribute to C S Lewis.
