0 degrees and dry when driving in.

I have to say the pleasure of watching Lucy Verasamy waving here arms at me while in bed might be enjoyable but this weeks weather forecast has been wrong again.

At the beggining of the week we were warned that we were in for the coldest snap of weather for some years, but frankly it has been most leading.

David Bass and Tom Bellamy were in this morning as was amateur rider Will Ramsey. Will is staying here for the weekend.

We worked Gallery Exhibition, Harry Topper, Boy In A Bentley, Texas Forever, Vital Evidence, Call Claude, Cascaye, Minella Warrior, Thedrinkymeister, Our Belle Amie, Aliandy, Aunty Ann, Mon Palois, Beyond Supremacy, Diva Reconce, Bily Elliott, Bandon Roc and Champagne to Go.. all the rest cantered.

Second lot we were joined by Paul Gold and Matthew Fenton, Safron and Colin Ball, Paul and Joe Mulford and Paul and Kenneth Cox for a 'Morning On The Gallops followed by breakfast' as booked through CD Tours

Steve, Gabriela and Thomas Winter were here third lot to see to see Derrintogher Bliss and Steve's KBRP horses Younevercall and Silver Kayf

We have one runner this weekend and that is Knockanrawley at Warwick today. For my thoughts on his chances please click here.

Gerald Delamere on page 27 of todays Racing Post mentions KAR by saying that ''the dry auntumn was presumably the reason he didn't run in the Welsh National''... KAR was balloted out otherwise he would have..

Watch ITV4 today for racing and this mornings programme has the Jockey Club discussing Kempton.. should be interesting..

This weekends joke comes from Jeff Cole..

A woman answered her door to a vacuum cleaner salesman, 'Hello Madam can I interest you in our latest powerful cleaner?'

'I'm sorry she replied, I am having a hard time and have no money', persistently he carried on, 'but Madam this is an opportunity not to be missed, look, I will demonstrate',

The salesman produced a bag of horse droppings and threw them on the floor, ' Madam, watch, If my cleaner does not remove all traces of this mess I will eat it myself'.

The woman turns away, 'Madam, where are you going'? 'To the kitchen to get you a spoon, my electric was cut off yesterday'.

Have a good one and see you on Monday.
