Tomorrow’s Cheltenham Gold Cup will see a large contingent from Manchester United head down to cheer on Sir Alex Ferguson’s entry Clan Des Obeaux (which is the big tip we’ve been hearing all week).
Fergie has been a popular figure at the festival, happily taking selfies with all and sundry. Other popular ex-football figures swanning about in the VIP hospitality area include Alan Brazil, Martin Keown, Glen Johnson and Dean Saunders.
The person having the most fun though? Alan Brazil’s wife. She was on a real winning streak yesterday, proudly showing off her winning tickets to anyone who would look. She backed the winners in the first three races too – all with £100 stakes – so if you’re looking for a hot tip, she’s the one to hit up.
