Plus 7 and dry when driving in.

Was it a good day at the office yesterday? Probably not, but if Abbreviate had won then it would have ..

Abbreviate was second beaten a diminishing neck. He was novicey over his hurdles and that cost him the race. He pulled hard early and looked like winning turning for home, but he was very inexperienced and it showed. All in all a good effort and as the Racing Post said, Abbreviate was the horse to take away from yesterday’s card.

Gallery Exhibition made a mistake at the 6th and was never happy after, while Snowmane just can't breath and he will now be retired; so if you are looking for a lovely horse to re home please ring me.. a non racing home please..

Over at Bangor Kilty Caul looked like she needs further and three runs..

I have said it before and will say it again. Warwick under their new management are trying to make their owners' experience better and Andy Clark and Aiden Murphy looked after my Owners Keith and Liz Ellis well while Clare and I were entertained by main sponsors Colliers.

Thanks John Webber and Richard Sheppard; it was a fun day and I am just sorry that we could not carry on in the local pub after racing!!  Love to know how you both feel this morning..

Tom Bellamy was in for a couple of lots. We jumped Trojan Star over fences.

Talking great owners experience I am heading to Ascot today for a days flat racing where they are brilliant at looking after them..

Sunblazer runs in the last and some chap called Silvestre de Sousa rides him.. Frankie was asked, but his agent said no as he had something more important to ride over the weekend, apparently.. Not sure he was impressed by Sunblazer's hurdling form?…Anyway Sunblazer will finally have his ground, but will it make a difference? For my thoughts please click here.

Please don't be offended by this joke which was sent over by somebody who has been here for breakfast recently..

Mary recently lost her husband. She had him cremated and brought his ashes home.

Picking up the urn that he was in, she poured him out on the patio table.

Then, while tracing her fingers in the ashes, she started talking to him....

You know that dishwasher you promised me? I bought it with the insurance money!"

She paused for a minute tracing her fingers in the ashes then said, "Remember that car you promised me? Well, I also bought it with the insurance money!"

Again, she paused for a few minutes and while tracing her fingers in the ashes she said, "Remember that diamond ring you promised me? I bought that too, with the insurance money!"

Finally, still tracing her fingers in the ashes, She said, "Remember that blow job I promised you?"

"Well Here it comes."
