4th May 2021

Plus 6 and dry when driving in.

16mm of rain over the last 24 hours and the coldest early May Bank Holiday on record.. Yes another record broken weather wise!

Welcome rain at Warwick..although two seconds were not so welcome..

Inca Rose and Subway Surf both ran well, but both were held at the line..You know how much I hate being second and a double dose was not what I wanted..At Kempton Mon Palois again ran rather below par having travelled so well until the third last… Yes a frustrating day..

Off early this morning to take 4 youngsters for an away day..Percy Veering, My Telescope Gelding, Tantoli and Parc D’Ämour all went away for a gallop..

We jumped The Bull McCabe, Yeavering Belle, Shinobi and Java Point over fences.

This weeks movers and shakers in the BHA handicap charts are.. Dandy Dan down 5 to 129 over hurdles and 135 over fences and Adjourned down 2 to 63 on the flat

We have three runners later today at Southwell..Aliandy, Voyburg and Grey Flint and for my thoughts please click here.

I am heading North for a few days fishing on the Helmsdale.. Tonight I break my journey to stay with Ian and Tocky Mckie. (In one of their cottages) ..Maddie in charge of the blog for the rest of the week.

The old ones are always the best..

A man calls home to his wife and says, "Honey, I've been invited to fly to Scotland with my best man and several of his friends to go fishing, for four days.

This is a good opportunity for me to do something I've been wanting to do for a while, so could you please pack enough clothes for a four-day stay. And also, would you get out my rod and tackle box up from the garage?

We're leaving at 4:30 pm from the yard and I'll swing by the house to pick-up my things. Oh! And please pack my new navy blue silk pajamas."

The wife thinks this sounds a bit odd, but, being the good wife, she does exactly what her husband asked.

Following the four days away he returns home a little tired, but, otherwise looking good.

The wife welcomes him home and asks if he caught many fish?

He says, "Yes! A few sea trout and the odd salmon, and a pike." "But", he said, why didnt you pack my new blue silk pajamas, like I asked?''

You'll love the answer.

The wife replies, "I did, they're in your tackle box".
