Plus 8 and drizzling when driving in.

A long day in London..Great lunch, good company.

Eric Clapton amazing, as is a packed Royal Albert Hall for watching. Again great company. Keith and Liz Ellis in cracking form..

Mark and Melinda Laws here third lot. Their Ben Arthur has been retired and now has a new home down in Devon where he will have a great life..

What a good day for the small trainer yesterday at York.

Not saying Hughie Morrison is a small trainer, but in the great scheme of things his win with Telecaster was  welcome relief to see a Derby Trial won by somebody other than an O’Brien trained or even an Arab owned winner…

It will be interesting to see who owns him when he next runs .. if it happens to be the Derby..

Ramifications of Michael O'Leary's descion to scale down his Gigginstown operation..Life will change for many who have been involved with him..Willie Mullins is not one who will not be that worried.

Sadly this did not happen to me yesterday..
