Plus 1 and dry when driving in.

David Bass, Ciaran Gethings, Chester Williams and Harry Beswick were in this morning.. we worked a few

First day of full lockdown.. Hardly fun for anybody...

This text came from one of my esteemed owners..

'We’re all in for a quiet few weeks again but as far as we’re concerned that’s a very small price to pay in order to get life back to normal.

The most important thing is that we all live to tell the tale and get the most out of life beyond these unfortunate times!'

Moving on..

One of my pet gripes.. Early closing races.. Yesterday we had several of the big races closing for Cheltenham Festival.. Why do we have to make entries for these races at Cheltenham so early? So much time and so much to miss.. Do you enter horses who you hope might improve to be good enough for these races?. Is it an excuse to try and cover as much of the prize money as possible I wonder..!

Other pet gripe.. 48 declarations.. OK or flat racing but with jump racing it is just not so easy.. weather/ground play a major part of our descisions..

We have a runner on the all weather at Kempton tonight. Diamond Gait heads there for what will be her first venture in a flat race. For my thoughts on her chances please click here.


Everyone PLEASE be careful because people are going crazy from being locked down at home!

I was just talking about this with the microwave and the toaster while drinking my tea, and we all agreed that things are getting bad.

I didn’t mention any of this to the washing machine, because she puts a different spin on EVERYTHING!! Certainly couldn’t share with the fridge, cause he’s been acting cold and distant!

In the end, the iron straightened me out! She said the situation isn’t all that pressing and all the wrinkles will soon get ironed out!

The vacuum, however, was very unsympathetic…told me to just suck it up! But the fan was VERY optimistic and gave me hope that it will all blow over soon!

The toilet looked a bit flushed but didn’t say anything when I asked its opinion, but the front door said I was becoming unhinged and the doorknob told me to get a grip!! You can just about guess what the curtains told me: they told me to “pull myself together!”

We will survive!!
