Alex Telfer

Copy Writer/Freelancer/Content Editor

United Kingdom

Ten years ago, a crack commando was sent to prison by a military court for a crime of grammar he didn't commit. This man promptly sulked before escaping from a maximum-security stockade into the Brentford underground. Today, still wanted by the government, he survives as a freelance writer. If you have a problem... if no one else can help... and if you can find him... maybe you can hire*... Alex Telfer.

*Especially if the subject matter involves travel, sports, gambling, wildlife, London, social commentary, humour and more.

After his poorly attended arena rally in Tulsa, Donald Trump has announced he will only use small, independent locales and arthouse theatres for his gigs from now on.

15:05 Royal Ascot - All eyes on Battle of Marengo in King Edward

Royal Ascot's richest Group 2 race will see Battle of Marengo attempt to return to form, after his disappointing fourth-place finish in the Derby. Prior to Epsom, the Aidan O'Brien-trained horse won five races in succession, including two Group 2 races, and despite carrying an extra 3lbs than the rest, the absence of his three Epsom conquerors justifies a price of 8/11.
