0 degrees when waking in Liverpool.

Jockeys wore Black armbands.. What a sad day with the death of the Duke Of Edinburgh.. A remarkable man and an institution.... Deepest thoughts to Her Majesty and all her family..

Well yesterday certainly tried to test my temper..

Ajero sadly and rather annoyingly ran below par and reasons will appear.. Perhaps a typical end of season run?

Espoir De Romay well what can I say.. He probably would have won us another Grade one if he had not fallen two from home.. But you don’t win Graded races by falling!.. Hugely frustrating as he was going so well.. Thankfully he is fine and will have other days.. A huge horse with a huge future, just so annoying that yesterday he was not able to show the racing world.

Two For Gold missed the break.. the start was a fiasco and our race was over as soon as it started and then DB fell off him when TFG cut the Canal Turn tighter than DB!

So not a good day.. at least the sun shone and the racecourse looked amazing!.. And all three are ok after their races.

Saturday morning at Thorndale

Norman Carter was here third lot to see his two horses Samatian and Diamond Gait and his KBRS horse Voyburg.

We have two runners today at Aintree. Vinndication and Happygolucky and for my thoughts on their chances please click here.

Well who will win the Grand National.. Cloth Cap the shortest favourite for years..My other horses at all odds. Kimberlite Candy,  Potters Corner and Talkischeap..

At what point can we just start using 2021 as profanity? As in:  “That’s a load of 2021.” or “What in the 2021.” or “abso-2021-lutely.”
Ate salad for dinner. Mostly croutons and tomatoes. Really just one  big round crouton covered with tomato sauce, and cheese. FINE, it was a  pizza.... OK, I ate a pizza! Are you happy now?
A recent study has found women who carry a little extra weight live  longer than men who mention it.
