Plus 13 and dry when driving in.

Uttoxeter was busy for a mid week meeting. Free entry to celebrate their new local hero Gold Medalist Adam Peaty. Sadly Adam was on holiday but his father was there to hand out the winning trophy to Jonjo O’Neill whose In The Rough beat our horse Jimmy The Jetplane.

Jimmy ran well but as expected all we did was set the race up for the winner, who had to be held up. Jimmy was not in the mood for being held up to play a waiting game.. he jumps too well and was keen to get on with it.

Jimmy looked as though he might stretch the winner but it was not the case. Second again and the third time in a row for Jimmy but again he ran to his form and rating, but again it was frustrating to finish second.

What was frustrating was the dismal run from Policy Breach. He was never really going and finished totally exhausted and distressed.. Something wrong.. something will appear as there has to be a reason for his poor run.

Both horses seem fine this morning..

David Bass was in this morning for a couple of lots. We jumped a few on the all weather. Aliandy, Another Venture, Ascotdeux Nellerie, Boy In A Bentley, By The Boardwalk, Champion Chase, Coco des Champ, Gaelic Myth, Grand March, King Simba, Monkhouse, Mr Brinkley, Nam Hai, Patsy Castle, Sainte Ladylime, Shaluna, Silver Eagle, Sonneofpresenting, Younevercall and Laval Noir.  My photography was not great this morning.. so sorry if your horse is not seen jumping.

Archie heads back to school today.. He is going to a school in France for the term. Hopefully he will be better at the local language than either of his parents when he returns in December.

Nikki Heath's home bred grey gelding by Schiaperelli out of Ladylliat arrived here last night.

Andy Murray beaten by a butterfly? Pakistan hammered England.. The Paralympics starting in Rio.

We have no runners today.

John Turner sent this one over...?

A woman arrives home from work and her husband notices she's wearing a diamond necklace.

He asks his wife, "Where did you get that necklace?"

She replies, "I won it in a raffle at work. Go get my bath ready while I start dinner."

The next day, the women arrives home from work wearing a diamond bracelet.

Her husband asks, "Where did you get the bracelet?"

She replies, "I won it in a raffle at work. Go get my bath ready while I start dinner."

The next day, her husband notices she arrives home from work wearing a mink coat. He says, "I suppose you won that in a raffle at work?"

She replies, "Yeah I did! How did you guess? Go get my bath ready while I start supper."

Later after supper, she goes to take her bath and she notices there is only one millimetre of water in the tub.

She yells to her husband, "HEY! There's only millimetre of water in the tub."

He replies, "I didn't want you to get your raffle ticket wet."
