Trust me. II.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, The Beeb reports that one-time rising star Robert Winston has returned to race riding after "a long spell out through injury and a battle against alcoholism".
Winston, one of six jockeys arrested and now on bail until early 2006, pending the outcome of an ongoing City of London police investigation into allegations of race-fixing, was frank in his comments:
"It is great to be back. I was drinking myself to death. I just couldn't control it."
