Plus 3 and dry when driving in.

I was probably not expecting miracles when driving to Ludlow but I was not expecting Firth Of Gold to be that bad.. Percy Veering and Charming Getaway ran as expected, but FOG was just shocking. Or was it just stage fright?

The best part of the day was Ludlow’s generosity by allowing us a box to entertain in.

My drive was with David Bass and the journey home was almost in silence as neither of us were happy with the day..

I finally broke the silence when talking about his veggie boxes for food.. Not quite food bank, but food boxes arriving on Monday to supply him for the week.. David swears by the quality of the food.. obviously I would not be ordering quite the same… Anyway I am married to a very good cook..

Arriving back in the office last night I found a very welcome delivery of Tidal Rum....Harry Coultard, via Tim Caven, asked for some advice on a racecourse introduction re selling his Tidal Rum.. I offered some help and hence a bottle on my desk.. I was keen to try and certainly needed some uplifting spirits after my day at Ludlow. And Boom it worked a treat.. I now like rum..

Thursday and we have four runners..

..Lots Of Luck and Saint Bibiana run at Huntingdon while Phantom Getaway and Those Tiger Feet run at Ffos Las.. For my thoughts on their chances please click here.
