Keiren O'Brien's First Past the Racing Post with Stephen Fry

A little flutter at Cheltenham brings a hot flush and a racing pulse to a huge variety of punters. So the Racing Post don’t underestimate the minds and diversity of their readers. With the longest average daily read of any UK newspaper – two hours, try that with the Metro – and the Queen as a subscriber, they are way too savvy to pigeonhole their customer.

Written and directed by P for Production's Keiren O’Brien this commercial fails to box anyone in. With a galloping, lyrical voice over by Stephen Fry this intelligent, insightful advert gets its tips out for the boys.
