    Reminds me of when Harry Enfield's Loadsamoney gave up going to Tottenham for the Opera.

    "Who's that wanker Pavarotti?"

    For some reason that fight at Royal Ascot over weekend reminds me so much of this Simpsons clip :

    RACECOURSES in Britain are working hard to prevent further violence in the wake of mass brawls at Goodwood and Ascot last month.

    On Saturday, racegoers were ejected from Hexham for fighting while a man was caught attempting to smuggle drugs into Musselburgh on the same afternoon.

    There have been several outbreaks of violence at British racecourses this year
    A group of men were photographed fighting on one of the lawns at Hexham following the conclusion of the final race, though the racecourse chief Robert Whitelock reported no injuries as a result of the scuffle and said security were quickly on the scene.

    Earlier in the day, police seized drugs worth more than £700 from a racegoer before he entered Saturday's sold-out ladies day meeting at Musselburgh.


    Musselburgh CEO Bill Farnsworth told the Link has been hidden. Please Register to view.: “The guy was caught trying to bring in the drugs under his arm.

    "I'm sure he's going to be in big trouble.

    "There were a lot of sniffer dogs at the track and a big police presence as we need to try to control this problem.

    “It’s bad enough that people try to bring in drugs for personal use, but more worrying is the danger that dealers will try to get in to sell the stuff.


    "We must do everything we can to try to stop that."

    It was the second such incident in the space of six days in Scotland, with ten people charged after they were found to be carrying 11 packages of cocaine at Kelso the previous Sunday.
