Hammers stars get a lesson in horse racing commentary

Cheltenham Festival is nearly upon us.
So, to mark the occasion, principal club sponsors Betway decided to send four Hammers players back to school in order to learn how to become a horse racing commentator. 
Stepping back into the classroom were Patrice Evra, Mark Noble, Joe Hart and James Collins, while their teacher was none other than the voice of ITV Racing, Richard Hoiles. 
After being walked through the basics – from how to convey the excitement of a race to ways of differentiating between horses – all four players were then invited to have a go at the real thing by commentating on a classic Cheltenham moment from years gone by.  
But who would turn out to be the teacher’s pet, and who would be held back in detention?
