Plus 12 and dry when waking in Dublin..

Lets start with yesterdays racing..

A winner with Peaked Too Soon was certainly very welcome after the last two days which were not so much fun.. Anyway PTS, who is owned by Julie and David Martin and Dan Hall, was having his first run for us and his first over hurdles having been bought by Julie Martin when the old partnership who owned him with Jamie Osborne decided to sell him.. Julie was already involved and just loves his sire Iffraaj.. A good hold up ride from Ciaran Gethings..

Shinobi was outpaced but actually did not run too badly and with a bit of luck the handicapper might give him a bit of light relief.. Gerard Mentor had a nasty fall at the last..  He travelled well into the straight but emptied out all rather too quickly. all are ok.

Trade was very strong at Goffs sales and it was tough buying.. Aiden and I struggled, but at least we manged to buy the horses we wanted.. we lost a few too… 

Yesterdays purchases were of Lot 5 a good looking 3 year old Gelding by Mahler out of graded winning mare Emily Gray and Lot 52 a big 3 year old Gelding by Telescope out of Jennifer Eccles.. Lot 86  a fine big easy moving son of Getaway and finally  Lot 106 a stunning son of Kayf Tara who was bought for Phil and Gill Andrews.. I hope this horse might be good enough to head back to Punchestown next year for the Landover bumper..

It was a long day and it starts again today..Mrs B keen that I keep my hands in my pockets!

We one runner tonight at Kempton.. Blazon heads back ther after his last win and for my thoughts please click here.

A bakery owner hires a young female shop assistant who liked to wear very short skirts and thong panties.

One day a young man enters the store, glances at the shop assistant and at the loaves of bread behind the counter.

Noticing her short skirt and the location of the raisin bread, he has a brilliant idea.

"I'd like some raisin bread please," the man says.

The shop assistant nods and climbs up a ladder to reach the raisin bread located on the very top shelf.

The man standing almost directly beneath her is provided with an excellent view, just as he thought.

When she descends the ladder, he decides that he had better get two loaves.

As the shop assistant retrieves the second loaf of bread,

One of the other male customers notices what's going on and requests his own loaf of raisin bread.

After many trips she is tired and irritated and begins to wonder,

"Why the unusual interest in the raisin bread?"

Top the ladder one more time, she looks down and glares at the men standing below.

Then, she notices an elderly man standing amongst the crowd.

Thinking that she can save herself another trip,

She yells at the elderly man,

 "Is it raisin for you too?"

 "No," he stammers, "But it's quivering a little."
