Told you I was no good at this, so a free baton to whoever can come up with a suitable offering.

The river traveler in question was MONTMORENCY.

Is there anybody there?

Just so happens that this clue has been waiting so long that it's become topical again! So refer back to the original clue.

OK I give in...

O! That was very close! (5, 6) = Photo finish

The "topicality" clues referred to the Cheltenham & Aintree festivals.

Someody else can have a go now, if anybody's there!
