Musicians like to think they are writing songs for people like themselves, but they can be sorely mistaken, as Tom Petty found when his anthem "American Girl" was blasted out before the right-wing US presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann took the stage.

At Royal Ascot last week, Johnny Murtagh and Eddie Ahern showed just how rewarding can be the role of supersub.

Jockeys must ride as if over eggshells now, with the Cheltenham Festival starting a fortnight on Tuesday, but Jason Maguire managed to trample over his own dreams at Doncaster yesterday. He will miss the ride on Peddlers Cross in the Stan James Champion Hurdle, after earning a seven-day suspension for his use of the whip on Cool Mission in the novice chase.
