Plus 11, windy and drizzling when driving in.

We have not had the rain that was promised…

Blazon was outpaced at Wolverhampton yesterday.. expected, but until he has had three runs we will not be able to choose where he goes.. hard to find races for him until he has a handicap mark.

David Bass was in. We worked a few and jumped Vinndication, Red River, Two For Gold, Younevercall, Peeping Tom, Mon Palois, Thibault and Cloone Lady. Watch videos of this morning exercise First Lot, Second Lot, Schooling

Russell and Leslie Fields were here second lot to see their horse Bandon Roc. John and Sue Stanley who are also part owners of Bandon Roc were here and they also saw their KBRP horse Peeping Tom.

We have just the one runner today at Chepstow. Balleticon runs in the lucky last and for my thoughts please click here.

Cricket better, far better,  and who is this chap Ben Foakes.. To start with he was born in Colchester in Essex (as was I). He is a wicketkeeper batsman who now plays for Surrey. His first Test yesterday and a maiden century.. I expect we will be hearing a great deal more of him.

This is a story with a happy ending...

I was sitting at the bar staring at my drink when a large, trouble-making biker steps up next to me, grabs my drink and gulps it down in one swig."

“Well, whatcha' gonna do about it?" he says, menacingly, as I burst into tears.  "Come on, man," the biker says, "I didn't think you'd cry.  I can't stand to see a man crying.”

"This is the worst day of my life," I said. "I'm a complete failure.  I was late to a meeting and my boss fired me.  When I went to the parking lot, I found my car had been stolen and I don't have any insurance.  I left my wallet in the cab I took home.  I found my wife with another man ... and then my dog bit me."

"So, I came to this bar to work up the courage to put an end to it all.  I buy a drink, I drop a capsule in it and sit here watching the poison dissolve.  Then you show up and drink the whole damn thing!  But, hell, enough about me, how are you doing?"

Hugie Morrison's birthday today.. Yesterday was so nearly the perfect present.. we hate seconds don't we, but second in the Melbourne Cup?
