What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Touting The Arc

The Tout’s tips for the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe

 

A glorious autumn season is upon us and having been blessed with a week of fine weather the going will be good at Longchamps for the smartest weekend in Paris and the only time the French bother to go racing in all their pomp and finery. It is however a little like Cheltenham with The Irish in that it is Les Anglais who invade in force both with support and horses and take Paris over for the weekend.

 

Touting The Arc – The Tout’s tips for the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe 2015. Be sure to watch Found, Golden Horn and Teve this year.
The Arc is a highlight of the racing calendar

 

The Arc is worth €5,000,000 and the glory that is irreplaceable. This year may be historic as the brilliant mare Treve, trained by Criquette Head (of that genius French family) goes for her third Arc in a row and is favourite at 11/10 but this is no walkover as we suggest our Derby Winner Golden Horn together with Classic winner, Found trained by Aiden O’Brien, from Ireland with Free Eagle, the winner of The Prince of Wales Stakes Group One at Royal Asxot and trained by another master in Dermot Weld.

 

There are of course other runners but The Tout can only see these three high quality beasts being there at the finish. They are all great horses trained by great masters of their craft but one has a five pound advantage and that is the resurgent Frankie Dettori on board Golden Horn available at 5/1. If they don’t make it let’s hope that Treve can make history and go down as the greatest mare of all time.
