Plus 14 and dry when driving in.

Dry it was not at Goodwood.. Not when you are with Keith Ellis..

A fun day and it is so beautiful in that part of Sussex. The view from the top of the grandstand is breath taking. Huge crowds enjoying their days racing in the heat. And good racing to boot.

Charlie Deutsch has come out and by that I meant he has left his last hotel and now back on track.

I don’t know Charlie but I do know his parents..what Charlie has been through over the last couple of months will never be forgotten and I am sure it was pretty tough. But positively he will be stronger and now has to prove that he has the ability (which he has ) to succeed.

I wish him the best and I am sure those of us who follow jump racing will be hearing far more about this talented young man. What he did was wrong and he has paid the penalty.

Over in Ireland yesterday Willie Mullins won the Galway Hurdle.. actually he finished 1st and 2nd with his six runners The dominance of Willie and Gordon Elliott in Irish jump racing carries on.

Graham Potts our vet was in this morning for his Friday visit .. Tom Siddall has been here most of the week rasping away at our horses teeth.. Equine dentistry is very important.

Mat and Evelyn and John and Penny Perriss had supper at The Frogmill last night.. Mat said it was excellent..

Charlie Dingwall asked yesterday if I had  this gone fishin' story?

A doctor in Dublin wanted to get off work, so he approached his assistant!

"Murphy, I am going fishing tomorrow and don't want to close the clinic so I want you to take care of the clinic and take care of all me patients."

"Yes, sir!" answers Murphy.

The doctor goes fishing and returns the following day and asks: "So, Murphy, how was your day?"

Murphy told him that he took care of three patients. "The first one had a headache so he did, so I gave him Paracetamol."

"Bravo Murphy lad, and the second one?" asks the doctor.

"The second one had indigestion and I gave him Gaviscon, so I did sir" says Murphy.

"Bravo, bravo! You're good at this and what about the turd one?" asks the doctor.

"Sir, I was sitting here and suddenly the door flies open and a young gorgeous woman bursts in so she does. Like a bolt outta the blue, she tears off her clothes, taking off everything including her bra and her knickers and lies down on the table, spreading her legs and shouts: 'HELP ME for the love of St Patrick! For five years I have not seen a man!'

"Tunderin' lard Jesus Murphy, what did you do?" asks the doctor.

"I put drops in her eyes, and sent her to Specsavers.

Cricket.. Edgbaston .. dropped catches could be England's downfall. India are not likely to let them off lightly.. yes a Test match that looks finely poised..Vital Kohli..149..

To finish..Mikey Hamill organised, on behalf of all my staff, a surprise birthday cake for Sinead yesterday.. A sponge cake in the shape of her favourite food.. 20 chicken nuggets and chips....The cake was a huge success..and tonight for the real thing..
