Plus 10 and dry when driving in..very mild..

There seems to be a great deal of rain on the way.. If you believe the weather forecasters. It could well affect the weekends racing

My race debut in the bumper at Ayr was not exactly awe-inspiring..

K C Bailey.. race report....Midfield, pushed along over 6f out, soon weakened, tailed off 3f out

Prompting Nick Cook to email.. ''You didn’t seem to get the trip old boy and I thought stamina was your strong point!!''

Others were rude about my ability.. enough said… I am sure in time there might be some positive vibes?.. Ever hopeful that in time I will make a great chaser..

Tuesday morning..

Graham Potts our vet was in this morning.

This weeks movers and shakers in the BHA handicap charts were all down.. Chazza down 2 to 122, Getaweapon down 3 to 115, Rosmuc Relay down 3 to 117 and finally Blazon down 3 to 60 on the flat.

We have a runner tonight at Southwell on the all-weather.. Diamond Gait heads there and for my thoughts please click here.

Fakenham's meeting today has been abandoned.. waterlogged .. Not something I have heard of happening there before..

There is plenty of talk about what shoes you should wear in lockdown.

Nicky S-T sent this over to The Times..

My favourite story on the subject tells of old aristocrat lunching at Cheltenham in a box owned by one of the big race sponsors.

Oblivious to, bored, or probably both, by a discussion about current footwear modes, the aforementioned aristocrat was the subject of an attempt to include him in the conversation:

" I doubt that you have any trainers"?

To which in, waspishly dismissive and sardonic tone the aristocrat responded:

" Of course I do: Nicholls trains the jumpers, Stoutie the flat horses, and one of our tenants trains a couple of pointers, that his daughter rides most proficiently"

Remiss of me.. Happy birthday Fenella Tillier for yesterday..
