Plus 5 and dry when driving in.

Vinndication…Great name for a horse.. Good horses have good names..Moremoneythan Partnership have a good name too..

I said on 'my insights' about yesterdays winner .. ‘Simply don’t know how good this horse is.. He has won a bumper and has been jumping well at home.. we like him and hope he will go very close.’

I have to say I was hugely impressed by his win as on paper it looked a very decent race. Vinndication was always travelling like a winner and when he made a mistake at the second last I wondered, but like his bumper win he put his head down and just powered home..

All very exciting and well done to his happy team of owners.. Yes Peter Kerr’s run Moremoneythan partnership of Gary and Phil Andrews, Philip and Sandra Arkwright, John Benson, Susan Brien, Chris Hill, Geoffrey Irving, David and Fran Ratcliffe, Darren Smith, Colin Stewart, Dave Wharton and Geri Worcester were very happy people last night.

Laval Noir was slightly disappointing but should now qualify for a handicap mark which will help. On Saturday El Presente was third at Bangor.. Ground too soft for him and he will probably now have a break until the spring.

Leicester racecourse really have improved their Owner experience.. well done..

We had a fabulous day yesterday too.. Pandora, James, Clare and I discussed wedding venues, dates and guest lists most of yesterday morning.. getting there. Nipped to their local pub to watch Vinndication win and then lunch with Charlie Egerton.  A lovely day.

Cricket dire...

David Bass in this morning and no runners.

Big awards HWPA lunch in London. The 2017 Qatar Racing & Equestrian Club Horserace Writers & Photographers Association Derby Awards at the Royal Lancaster Hotel....

When we got home last night we found all the windows and doors open and everything gone.  What kind of sick bastard does that to someone’s advent calendar?
