Minus 7 and dry when driving in.

A winner and the first for 2019.

Subway Surf was impressive when winning the bumper at Ludlow giving the new KBRP Surf On The Turf a winning start with their first runner..

Well done to her owners who include Mindy Hammond, Carol Vorderman, Stuart Higgins, Ron Brotherton, Paul Forest, Marcus Miller, Richard Sheppard, John Webber, Ken Gray, Dave Price and Vince Burmingham.

This former Irish point winner was bought by Aiden Murphy and I at the Tattersalls Cheltenham Sales last May and she has always pleased us at home, and yesterday she just jumped off in front and was never headed.

Our other runner in the race Miss Gemstone ran well, when she finally understood what she was doing, and she will strip a far better horse next time around.

The rest of the day was not that good as Silver Kayf ran rather disappointingly and Agent Memphis needs stronger handling and sharp reminder that she was not on a day out, but a racehorse with a job to do.. She will be better next time..

Well done to my racing team. Leigh Pollard, Poppy Greenway and Oliver Puffet won the best turned out wards in all three of our races ..

We have two runners today at Wetherby, Abbreviate and Prince Llywellyn. For my thoughts on their chances please click here

Is this something that has happened to you I wonder. Please note this is not me...Subject.. Car keys...

Several days ago, I couldn't find my keys. I quickly gave myself a  personal search "Pat Down."

They weren't in my pockets or handbag. 

Suddenly I realized I must have left them in the car.Frantically, I headed for the car park. 

My husband has scolded me many times for leaving my keys in the car's ignition. He's afraid that the car could be stolen.

As I looked around the car park, I realised he was right. The car was gone. I immediately called the police. I gave them my location, confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that it had been stolen.

Then I made the most difficult call of all to my husband: "I  left my keys in the car and it's been stolen."

There was a moment of silence. I thought the call had been disconnected, but then I heard his voice. "Are you kidding me?" he barked, "I dropped you off!"

Now it was my turn to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, "Well, come and get me darling."

He retorted, "I will, as soon as I convince this policeman that I didn't steal your damn car!

Welcome to the golden years..
