Minus 3 and dry when driving in.

Oh how I hate being second..Shantou Express was just beaten, but the horror was that if he had won he would have brought up number 50 for the season.. It was though a damn good run ..

What was also a really good run was half an hour earlier when Hes No Trouble won well to bring up number 49 for the season..

Hes No Trouble was back in trip, first time cheek pieces and on better ground.. he was very tough and gave The Jockey Club Horse Racing a double on the day as they also had a winner at Southwell. They have three horses in training and all have won this season..  Photos

I seem to be on Zoom…Skype.. facetime.. you name it..all too often! 2 yesterday, Odds checker and In The Know, and more today and one most days this week in fact.. Cheltenham hysteria and with no crowds to enjoy.

All well and good doing all these calls but it is easy to miss out on a meal or two.. Not if you are like Boris..If he can, then so can you .. Try The Bundle Company and their Cheltenham hampers.. Plug over!!

I was late back home last night after the last zoom call.. I left Mrs B watching TV while I took the dogs for a walk and all  I heard as I left was her shouting 'you should try being married to a racehorse trainer!'  Lord is it that bad?

Talking abuse..the BBC have been in touch with me to talk to me about how young jockeys cope with the abuse they receive on social media.. It happens all too often.

Trainers do too and here is yet another example of what I find flying into my inbox after a horse is beaten..  ''You want to hope I don't find out where you and that scumbag Davis bass live il smash a baseball bat over your heads! what a surprise your address is on here see you soon''

I assume the email refers to Shantou Express being beaten into second place, not for Hes No Trouble winning?

At least I can laugh about it!!

Graham Potts was in for his Tuesday vet visit and this weeks movers and shakers in then BHA handicap charts were..Java Point up 4 to 121 and Wandrin Star down 1 to 139

We have three runners today. Donnie Brasco runs at Newcastle while Party Fuzz and Prince Llywelyn run at Exeter and for my thoughts on their chances please click here.

My wife and I were watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire while we were in bed.

I turned to her and said, 'Do you want to have sex?'

'No,' she answered.

I then said,'Is that your final answer?'

She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying, 'Yes..'

So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend."

And that's when the fight started...

Have you spotted my new member of staff?
