His whitty response “I chase my girlfriend around a field carrying a whip” sparked a huge response from racing professionals and fans.

Among those to reply was leading commentator John Hunt, who said: “I watch Tom chasing his girlfriend around a field whilst shouting loudly at them’.

Punters were soon getting in on the fun.

Lawrence Wadey tweeted: “I put my money on Tom Marquad and other guys chasing Tom’s girlfriend around a field. They all have whips.”
