Plus 7 and dry when driving in. Happy.. Go.. Lucky.. what a gem you are.

A first Cheltenham winner for Michael and Mary Dulverton and with a few extra people around it did feel more like a reason to celebrate.

Happygolucky jumped for fun and loved the track and distance.. Ground was certainly soft but that did not stop him.. he was impressive… well at least I thought so.

The most annoying thing is that he really should be 3 from 3 not 2 from 3! Narrowly beaten at Fakenham last time was frustrating.

Equally frustrating was not being able to celebrate with the Dulverton’s after their win.. Not the racecourses fault but being in the green zone is probably the worst experience you can have on a racecourse.. You are locked away from everybody i.e owners and the crowds.. So dull was it that I left the racecourse soon after Happygolucky’s win and spent the rest of the afternoon watching on TV at home!

Ciaran Gething, Chester Williams and Harry Beswick were in to ride out this morning..No David Bass here as racing starts early and he was in the first at Doncaster..

Busy here this morning.. like the old days!

John and Mandy Battershall were here second lot to see their KBRS horses Younevercall, Lord Apparelli and Hendra House

A mother and her son are sitting on an airplane, which is ready to take off.

The son admires the parked planes’ through the window.

At one point, he turns to his mother, who was reading a magazine, and pops the question: "Since big dogs have little dogs, and big cats have little cats, how come, big airplanes have little planes?"

The child’s mother, bored to think of a reasonable answer, consultant him to ask the flight attendant.

Therefore, it happened: "Since big dogs have little dogs, and big cats have little cats, how come, big airplanes have little planes?" little boy asks the flight attendant.

Then, with a smile on her face, stewardess replied: "Did your mom told you to ask me?"

The boy shook his head positively.

So, she says back: "Tell your mother, that our company knows better and.. pulls out in time!"
