Doing something different is trending at racecourses, it seems. It was good to see Kauto Star strutting his new stuff under event rider Laura Collett in the parade ring at Newbury on Saturday, even if his so-called dressage display – a few basic flatwork moves at walk, trot and canter – has as much to do with top-level grand prix work as the Shetland pony grand national franchise that does the rounds of summer horse shows has to events at Aintree. The 13-year-old, though, apparently enjoyed being the focus of adulation as much as he ever did when with Paul Nicholls.

Paula Radcliffe might be baffled by Mo Farah's "half measure" approach to this year's London Marathon – he plans to drop out at the midpoint – but the fastest female marathon runner of all-time believes the double Olympic champion will take British men's marathon running back to the future when he tackles the full 26.2 mile distance for the first time next year. The British men's record has been stuck at 2 hours 07 minutes 13 seconds, the time achieved by Welshman Steve Jones, since October 1985. In Radcliffe's estimation, Farah is "well capable of running a 2hr 04min marathon".
