Plus 12 and dry when driving in. We had 12mm of rain last night..

Norman Carter was a very happy man when his horse Samatain went past the post in front at Stratford on Saturday under a great ride from David Bass. Their forecasted ground was as good as they predicted.. that was a good start..Thanks Nessie

A deserved win for Norman as Samatian was meant to have 'done' the same at Huntingdon 10 days ago but racing, as you may well recall was abandoned after the second race.

Stratford are certainly good at looking after owners, and their winning connections... and they produced a bottle of their finest red for the trainer to celebrate with as they know from past experience that he does not really appreciate bubbles..

Racecourse manager Ilona Barnett was on hand to discuss prizes with Norman.. Winning owners have a choice which is excellent, so Norman, who has had a winner at Stratford two years ago to the day with Diamond Gait, chose a different one this time.. The racecourse also gave Jadey a picture of her leading up her first winner.. SD Photos

Down at Newton Abbot Design Icon ran well enough for his first outing for over 500 days..

Champions day at Ascot was excellent but overshadowed in the news by Shark Hanlon and Hewick winning the American Grand National at Fair Hills in America.

Monday morning and a big week for Mat..and more so Evelyn..although not a good week for reading the papers..

The T20 World Cup has started and although England don't play until Saturday.. Scotland are today.

Bev and Jack Wright were here to see their KBRS horses Charming Getaway and Phantom Getaway..And a sad day as Stewart who passed away last week actually owned the shares..

Leigh Pollard sat her Level three travelling course.

Lets Go Amigo and Flirtatious Girl had a session with Laura Collett.

I was sent this, so dont think for one minute I did this..

My wife asked if she could have a little peace and quiet while she cooked dinner.

So I took the battery out of the smoke alarm..
