6th October 2021

Plus 8 and dry when driving in. It looks like we are in for a fairly long spell of fine weather….Oh..

A light lunch yesterday with Huw Davies at The Bay Tree Hotel.. Plenty of racing chat while we waited for our whitebait to be caught..

Grey Flint finished 4th at Huntingdon..Probably as good as he is, but annoying he has not finished closer..If you go back over his form he is rated for one non finish at Newton Abbot last year.. Such is life.. who said the handicapper was never wrong!

Wednesday morning

David Bass, Ciaran Gethings and Harrison Beswick were in to ride out and we had a few to work - First Lot, Second Lot, Third Lot

We jumped Espoir De Romay, Wandrin Star, Does He Know and El Presente

The racing world or rather the flat racing side shifts its attention to the big sale in Newmarket.. Book one..The non racing world will be keeping an eye on China..worrying times..

Graham Potts and his team were here to do a follow up on a few gastro scopes.. I feel it important to keep an eye on ulcers.. the last call was a clear call. So hope these are too..

We have two runners today at one of my favourite racecourses Ludlow..

Yeavering Belle, who is syndicate owned and one of his owners, Ian Dimmer, was up here last night straightening his Martin and Co sign!!..

Our other runner is Talk Of The Moon who is starting her racecourse life in the bumper.. For my thoughts on their chances please click here.

Short and true..

In an increasingly chaotic world with both natural and man-made disasters, we should downgrade Dennis to merely "a" menace.
