Plus 11 and dry when driving in.

There is quite a noise here and has been for the last couple of days.. Not the drumming of the steam cleaner against walls but the bleating of sheep from the barns opposite my office..

The sheep are having their hair cut and like many youngster that is not much fun although I have to say the ewes look happies with less wool now that summer has arrived. A team of shearers are in action all day. Music and bleating. Party time.. not.

Records just keep being broken at the sales..Tattersalls Ireland Goresbridge breeze up sales in Newmarket yesterday shattered a few more.. extroadinary.

Hannah Hawkins who is National Hospitality Sales & South West Syndicate Executive was here along with Freya Trotter who is Head of Customer Relations for The Racing Manager to meet The Jockey Club’s Cheltenham and South West Syndicate new horse Marton Abbey..

Peaked Too Soon is a non runner today at Market Rasen, so our next runners are tomorrow at Worcester and Sunday at Perth.

Great cricket at Lord's.. A draw still looks on the cards but an absorbing game to watch.
