Frankie Dettori can no longer count on the pick of Godolphin's runners

Godolphin plan to share new firsts among equals

It seems that one of the defining tenets of Godolphin is quietly being abandoned. Last year, its overseers seemed pleasantly surprised to win the 1,000 Guineas with Blue Bunting, who had not joined the usual winter exodus to Dubai following a minor injury. This time round, two rather more obvious candidates for the same race – Lyric Of Light and Discourse – are likewise being prepared in Newmarket. It turns out that the Al Quoz media morning, an institution of Dubai World Cup week, was not staged this year for the very good reason that Godolphin's best prospects are 3,500 miles away.

<b>WAYNE ROONEY</b><br/>
Rooney has experience of captaining United and is seen as a natural leader on the field. However, ill-discipline cost him a two-match suspension that rules him out of the start of Euro 2012, and would also surely rule him out of consideration too. <i>Glenn Moore's opinion on chances of becoming England captain:</i> <b>1/5</b>

Harriet Walker: 'We lose sight of each others' lives'

I'm back at work now, after six weeks' writing from the sofa, incapacitated first of all by a plaster cast, then simply by aching joints that had forgotten how to function and scar tissue so taut that walking felt like naughty elves shooting staples into my kneecap. The first day at my desk was, to my mind at least, just like when Jesus arrived at Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, yet without the bell-ringing or the crowds singing "Hosanna".

Miliband: 'I'm not going to make promises that I cannot keep'

Steve Richards: Labour deserves oblivion if it listens to the unions on pay

I begin with a little quiz. Who said the following words, and when? I will give you a clue, the second part of the question is at least as important as the first. Here are the words: "I have to level with you all ... a plan for growth now will help get the economy moving again and stop the vicious circle on the deficit – but by itself it won't secure our economic future or magic the deficit away. A steadier, more balanced, medium-term plan to get the deficit down will still mean difficult decisions and tough choices in the years ahead. Tough choices on tax and spending ... Discipline in public and private sector pay. And no matter how much we dislike particular Tory spending cuts or tax rises, we cannot make promises now to reverse them."
