'To stop swearing, but that's not going to happen!'

Leading lights in racing reveal their goals for 2018

Alan King: leading trainer wants to cut out swearing
1 of 1

Jerry Bailey, former jockey 
To get back to a single-digit golf handicap.

Ed Chamberlin, ITV Racing presenter
It could be any of these – to follow Jason Weaver’s tipping on ITV Racing; to eat fewer sweets out of the ITV Racing mugs during shows; or to not wear a blue shirt in the heat at Royal Ascot.

Danny Cook, jockey
Stop falling off and ride more winners.

Bob Davies, former jockey
The press to stop knocking racing when there is so much good about the sport.

David Dennis, trainer
To learn to cook.

Gordon Elliott is hoping to silence Matt Chapman

Gordon Elliott, trainer
To lose a bit of weight – I'm sick of the slagging I keep getting from the likes of Matt Chapman for being too fat!

Mick Fitzgerald, presenter
For my racing club to have more winners. We had an ordinary year in 2017.

Susannah Gill, Arc director of external affairs
Finding the time in the evening to read a chapter of a book as well as the iPad edition of the Racing Post.

Chris Gordon, trainer
To have more sex. . . with Mrs Gordon!

Jessica Harrington, trainer
Remember to think before opening my big gob is number one, and number two is to drink less wine after having a few vodkas. Mixing drinks is a disaster!

John Hunt, commentator
To lose some weight, but I've been saying that for years.

Alan King, trainer
To stop swearing, but that's not going to happen! I do try to cut down, but it's very difficult.

David MacDonald, executive director at Uttoxeter
I am going to keep off crisps and chocolate for as long as I can – I could be two stone lighter by Betfred Midlands Grand National day!

Graeme McPherson, trainer
To get a first Graded-race winner this season.

Charlie Moore, Uttoxeter clerk of the course
My resolution is to take all my holiday in 2018 – it would be a first if I do!

Hughie Morrison, trainer
To enjoy myself.

Ben Pauling: taking his new year's resolution seriously

Ben Pauling, trainer
To give up smoking. It's a genuine one, it's about time I stopped.

Mike Smith, jockey
It’s always to be a better me than the previous year! I know if I can do that everything else will be better as well.

Kirkland Tellwright, Haydock clerk of the course
Move to a region that has a more predictable climate.

Andrew Thornton, jockey (who injured his knee at Taunton on Saturday)
Not to finish on a bad note!
