A man who dyed his moustache yellow, green and purple last year in honour of Kauto Star has been handed the slightly dubious honour of being named the star steeplechaser's number one fan.

Banker Wyn Evans was not one of the seven applicants to boast a tattoo of the horse, but followed Kauto Star to every one of his races since first seeing him on television winning the Betfair Chase in 2006.

Often to be seen at the racecourse wearing his knitted jumper in Kauto Star's colours, Evans wins a VIP trip to Saturday's meeting at Haydock where he will meet the horse's connections.

Those to narrowly miss out on the main prize included a Glaswegian businessman who named his courier firm after the horse and a bride who themed her wedding around the horse, even wearing a yellow, green and purple garter.
