Burning Issue

From J.A.McGrath's 'Talking Racing' column in the Daily Telegraph:

John Francome was in fine form at the Cheltenham press conference earlier this week, relating the story of Tony Evans, the new top jockey at Nigel Twiston-Davies' stable, near Naunton, Gloucestershire, who felt he should ring an owner in the yard, who had recently lost his wife, to extend his condolences.
Having carried on along sympathetic lines for several minutes, Evans thought he should change the subject to something a little more upbeat. "Are you going to Towcester?" he inquired.
"Oh no, we're going to bury her," came the reply.
