Claude Duval 'The Punter's Pal', who retired as The Sun's racing correspondent in October 2016, after 47 years, has a unique insight into the Sport of Kings. He watched all the 'greats' in action from Arkle to Frankel and marvelled at the exploits of riding sensations from Lester Piggott to Tony McCoy. He has experienced some hilarious moments on his world-wide journeys and he reveals the inner secrets of the turf's top trainers like Sir Henry Cecil, Martin Pipe and Peter Easterby. He was the last surviving member of The Sun from the very first day when Rupert Murdoch started the red-top tabloid in November 1969. He has previously written widely acclaimed books on Lester Piggott, Willie Carson, Pat Eddery and Tony McCoy.
