Plus 14 and dry when driving in, and no it did not rain yesterday.

Politics in racing are not for me, but I have to say I enjoyed meeting and discussing horse welfare issues yesterday.

Horse welfare and especially post racing careers or life after a horse leaves our sport is something I really do believe in. We or rather Mrs B try our hardest to find good homes when we retire our beloved horses.

It is hugely important part of our job and responsibility, well at least I feel it is.. Frankly it probably should be widely known by all involved in racing and that includes owners .. When a horses career finishes we should take responsibility to make sure that horse has a good post racing life…

As I have mentioned before all our horses are rehomed on the proviso that if there is a problem whether it be financial or health problems then that horse has to come back here for us to rehome again or make other decisions… I know not many will agree, but that is our policy..

The ROR has been the biggest help to us when rehoming. ROR clases are hugely popular and there was a huge show last weekend at Aintree

Another fascinating first day of the fourth test at the Oval.. England looked in a strong position when bowling India out for 191..but then we lost 3 quick wickets including the worlds number one batsman Joe Root..Game on!!

The weather looks shocking in New York and it has caused problems for the US Open but at least our latest British star Emma Raducanu has sailed through the second round with a 2 set to 0 win.

Friday morning.

David Bass was in .. what a good chap..David looked very tired when arriving.. He had a late night .. His sister Elizabeth was playing in the BBC concert orchestra at last nights Proms

Martyn and Sandra Steer-Fowler were here second lot to see their horse Trelawne.

Poor old Jonny Portman.. He had his car stolen at Bath races..
