Junior Skelton takes first step into spotlight

If heredity and environment are significant, which they are supposed to be in racing, then it should be no surprise that 19-year-old Harry Skelton is doing what he is. His father Nick is one of the outstanding showjumpers of his generation; his five-years-older brother Dan is one of Paul Nicholls' right-hand men. On Saturday at Ascot the youngest Skelton, one of the promising Manor Farm apprentices, stepped forward into the spotlight for the first time with his most significant career victory yet on Niche Market in the three-mile handicap chase.

Car Choice: Long journeys are wearing on hips and knees, I need a comfortable ride

David McNamara, 69, is starting to suffer from osteoarthritis. A long car drive can become wearing on the joints. According to his physiotherapist he would be better off in a car with a driving seat that allows him to sit up straight, to ease the pressure on his hips and knees, and is higher off the ground, so it's easier to get in and out. At present David drives a five-year-old 1.6 VW Golf Estate, worth about £4,000 or £5,000. He would be prepared to spend up to £15,000. Seating space for grandchildren and boot space would be welcome.
