Question:

What does Santa Claus have in common with John Bull, Daedalus, The Flying Dutchman, Dr Devious, Captain Cuttle and Benny the Dip?

Forfeit:

Dunno.

Answer:

They're all Derby Winners: Benny the Dip (1997); Dr Devious (1992); Captain Cuttle (1922); The Flying Dutchman (1849); Daedalus (1794); John Bull (1792).

Notes:

General notes on the Derby can be found in Dante 2.

This might be a better question than the one in Dante 2 and a better use of 'Santa Claus' as no doubt we will be short of such for the Christmas Special.

Another way of phrasing the question might be:

How many legs do the following have between them?

Any views?

Picture ideas

Dunno

As someone who is vaguely aware of Horse Racing, I might venture that Benny The Dip is a bit of a giveaway.

Righty-oh. I've actually got a leg of a couple of horses but I am fantastically ignorant about the sport. Red Rum, Shergar, that's about it for me.

I can easily take it out, though I wonder if it might be nice to allow the panel an occasional easy win. After all, it is Christmas, y'know.
