Plus 14 and dry when driving in.

That was not a good day at the office.

Newton Abbot was having a minor heatwave and those who went racing in any sort of tweed would have wondered how they had misread the forecast. Sadly my runners certainly misread their script and although both looked fab both ran disappointing races..Time will tell as to why.

I have not been to Newton Abbot for a while and you could soon see why they were not allowing more than two owners per horses as they simply don’t have the room to accommodate any more.. The main hall under the grandstand has been used for the social distancing jockeys..

Those owners who I spoke to said the course made every effort to look after them.

Ciaran Gething and Chester Williams were in this morning.. we worked a few and had hoped to jump a few too, but the ground on the grass schooling ground has firmed up too much.

Panda Christie was here second lot to watch Starvoski perform up the gallops.

Maddie is away on a nail biting course in Portsmouth..I am sure not if that is really what she is up to.. whatever it something to do with her own business..

Martin Jones has just about finished with breaking in my youngster. This was the Norse Dancer 3 year old gelding cantering this morning..

We have just the one runner today at Uttoxeter. Illuminated Beauty heads there and I am going as an owner so that I can join John and Penny Perris..I could not yesterday as Newton Abbot only allowed 2 owners per horses while at Uttoxeter it is 4..Anyway for my thoughts on her chances please click here.

When ships had sails, they used to use the trade winds to cross the ocean. Sometimes when the wind didn't blow the sailors would whistle to make the wind come. My brother said they would have been better off eating beans. (William, age 7)
