Plus 11 and dry when driving in.

British trained horses finished in the first three places in the Lexus Melbourne Cup. Yes I watched it live.

A first British success.. Charlie Appleby has had a stellar season for Godolphin and his win with Cross Counter has capped an extraordinary season. Hughie Morrison’s Marelo was second and Charlie Fellows’s A Prince Of Arran was third.

This was not good news for the Aussies who will now probably change the race rules to stop European horses run in their biggest race.. ?!

Mark and Melinda Laws were here third lot to see their two horses Ben Arthur and Full Tilt and their KBRP horse Knockanrawley

Fourth lot David Martin and Dan Hall were here to see Charbel, Johnny Ocean, Minella Warrior and Gallows Point.

This weeks movers and shakers in the BHA handicap charts were…Agent Memphis down 1 to 99, Aliandy up 2 to 119, Braw Angus down 5 to 95, Mr Macho enters at 122, Net Work Rouge down 2 to 120, Rockys Treasure up 6 to 144, Wandrin Star down 2 to 125 while Sunblazer goes down 2 on the flat to 81.

Graham Potts is away on holiday, so another of the Three Countries Vet team was here.

We have one runner today at Wolverhampton and for my thoughts on Blazon's chances please click here.

England have not started well in their first test against Sri Lanka.. They won the toss but then a batting collapse

Two great white sharks swimming in the ocean spied survivors of a sunken ship.

"Follow me son" the father shark said to the son shark and they swam to the mass of people. "First we swim around them a few times with just the tip of our fins showing."

And they did.

"Well done, son! Now we swim around them a few times with all of our fins showing."

And they did.

"Now we eat everybody."

And they did.

When they were both gorged, the son asked, "Dad, why didn't we just eat them all at first? Why did we swim around and around them?"

His wise father replied, "Because they taste better if you scare the shit out of them first!"
