Plus 12 and drizzling when driving in.

Thibault ran like a horse who needs further, which we knew, but as there are no races for him over that trip so we had to go over two miles.. at least he is now qualified to run in normal handicap chases. He still ran well enough to finish second and have learnt a great deal from yesterdays first run over fences.

Station Master found Doncaster too tight so Southwell was always going to be tough enough for him, but at least he put last season poor form to bed. Better ground suited and when back on a galloping track he will find life easier

Southwell tried .. They offered foodie party bags to all..they were hugely apologetic that they could do no more to make our day easier or more fun... Their staff were smiley and very helpful.

Social distancing meant that I had to talk to my owner Penny Perriss over two barriers, but at least we could meet up after in the car park to discuss her horses run before heading home

David Bass, Ciaran Gething and Chester Williams were in this morning.

Gillian Cough was here third lot to see her KBRP horse Does He Know

Paul and Theresa Forrest were here to see their KBRP horses Subway Surf and Hendra House

John and Paul Benson were here to see John’s KBRP horse Arthurs Sixpence and Vinndication.

Graham Potts our vet was in this morning..

Sad to read that the one racecourse I would dearly love to have a runner at has decided that they will not be holding their meeting this year. Laytown..has passed us by this year..

Andrews Bowen are here later today to start on a bit of annual maintenance to our all-weather gallop..

A mother is driving her little girl to her friend's house for a play day. 'Mummy,' the little girl asks, 'how old are you?'

'Honey, you are not supposed to ask a lady her age,' the mother replied. 'It's not polite.'

'OK', the little girl says, 'What colour was your hair 2 years ago?

'Now really,' the mother says, 'those are personal questions and are really none of your business.'

Undaunted, the little girl asks, 'Why did you and Daddy get a divorce?'

'That's enough questions, young lady! Honestly!'

The exasperated mother walks away as the two friends begin to play.

'My Mum won't tell me anything about herself,' the little girl says to her friend. 'WELL' says the friend, 'all you need to do is look at her DRIVER'S LICENCE'...It's like our report cards, it has everything on it.'

Later that night the little girl says to her mother, 'I know how old you are...You are 32.'

The mother is surprised and asks, 'How did you find that out?'

'I also know that you used to have brown hair' The mother is past surprised and shocked now

'How in Heaven's name did you find that out?'

'And,' the little girl says triumphantly,

'I also know why you and daddy got a divorce.'

'Oh really' says the mother......Why?

'It's all on your driver’s licence and you only got an 'F' in sex.

To finish .. Happy birthday to India Smith.. in Sydney..
