Plus 10 and dry when driving in.

A very welcome winner at Warwick with Hamilton Dici..A good ride from Chester Williams who recommended him to me after he won a hurdle there last season..

I bought HD at the Goffs Yorton sale last December with the intention of him becoming my first ever 4 year old chaser and yesterday he did just that..

A good result for local owners Michael and Mary Dulverton who were on hand to celebrate and enjoy their horses impeccable jumping..

Talk Of The Moon ran well enough in what was a very hot bumper.. She was in front most of the way and carried on at the same speed as others passed her.. Softer ground and they might not have..

There was a very healthy crowd at Warwick.. Good to see Simon Claisse who heads into his last week as Clerk of the course at Cheltenham and Cornelius Lysaght who kept the Directors amused with his tales..mostly racing ones.

Clare and I had supper last night with James and Henrietta Cheatham at the Royal Oak in Prestury.. Good pub food..

England play Tonga at Twickenham

Two terrible Rugby jokes..

A friend of mine only goes to watch rugby to play pranks on people. He likes Twickenham.

A priest I know has taken up rugby. He’s scored a few tries but hasn’t made any conversions yet.

Have a great weekend and see you on Monday..
