John McCririck (born 17 April 1940) is an English television horse racing pundit. He is notable not only for his racing opinions, but his old-fashioned style of dress and mannerisms. With his trademark deerstalker hat, tweed jacket and large sideburns, he happily acts the role of a country gentleman.
