Plus 8 and dry when driving in.

A very cold wind all day yesterday certainly dried what moisture there was out of the ground; another similar day today?

Thursday is our easy day.. Not that many left in to be easy on.

Diva Reconce headed home today along with Mr Macho. Diva Reconce won her bumper impressively at Wawick and has been waiting too long for another chance to run on soft ground. .

Home means a summer being rightly spoilt by her owner Nanette Sellars in Cheshire… Philip and Sandra Arkwright are partners in this lovely filly and I am sure they too will be ogling at her over the fence.. a glass of red wine in hand I hope?

We have four runners today at Towcester. Billy Elliott, Champion Chase, You’re a Lady and Monroco. For my thoughts on their respective chances please click here.

A man asked a waiter to take a bottle of Merlot to an unusually attractive woman sitting alone at a table in a cosy little restaurant.

So the waiter took the Merlot to the woman and said, 'This is from the gentleman who is seated over there.' ..and indicated the sender with a nod of his head.

She stared at the wine coolly for a few seconds, not looking at the man, then decided to send a reply to him by a note.

The waiter, who was lingering nearby for a response, took the note from her and conveyed it to the gentleman.

The note read:

'For me to accept this bottle, you need to have a Mercedes in your garage, a million dollars in the bank and 7 inches in your pants'

After reading the note, the man decided to compose one of his own in return. He folded the note, handed it to the waiter and instructed him to deliver it to the lady.

It read:

'Just to let you know things aren't always what they appear to be, I have A Ferrari Maranello, BMW Z8, Mercedes CL600, and a Porsche Turbo in my several garages; I have beautiful homes in Aspen & Mauritius, and a 10,000 acre winery in France. There is over twenty million dollars in my bank account and portfolio. But, not even for a woman as beautiful as you are, would I cut off three inches. Just send the bottle back..
