Sir: Perhaps the stewards at Aintree could take a tip from Fiji.

The starter there releases a barrier made from bicycle inner tubes stretched across the course. False starts are unknown and the only time a race is in danger of being declared void is when the tide beats the horses to the finishing post.

Yours sincerely,
