Newbury - (Bolt From The Blue): Was Glib-Dem 'live wire' Vince Cable really responsible for a couple of nags dropping dead ahead of the 2.30 at Newbury last Saturday?
Of course not.
But some worried jumps trainers remain unconvinced ahead of pathology lab results on two dead racehorses.
Marching Song and Fenix Two dropped dead in the parade ring in what some suspect was a horse tasering stunt gone wrong.
Racecourse authorities immediately dug up parts of track after somebody said they thought Vince Cable 'was lurking inside'.
Naturally there was no sign of the politician nor of any suspicious stun gun equipment.
Postmortem tests are likely to show the cause of death may be sudden equine static shock, a horseshit umbrella term for natural causes.
In any event officials at Newbury are certain the course was a politician-free event last weekend and won't be dragging any government front benchers into the affray.
Preposterous Allegation remains 6/4 fav for this year's Derby.
