Patrick Wolf, Koko, London

The last night of a tour is often a special thing, and Patrick Wolf, dressed like Lord Byron at the height of his hedonism, is clearly enjoying himself.

Pandorama back in reckoning for Gold Cup

In the fortnight still dividing jump racing professionals from their defining challenge, all they expect is for things to go wrong.
