Plus 6 and dry when driving in.

Newton Abbot on Saturday was heaving and frankly from what Mat said not much fun.

Balleticon ran into third. He is taking his time to come back, but he is gradually getting there.. The ground was quick enough by the last race

Ffos Las yesterday showed that Shantou Express wants further on that sort of ground.. He won on soft at Market Rasen and it was not yesterday.

We had a big family day yesterday as I am sure many of you did too. No Easter egg hunt thankfully. Church in Sevenhampton followed a goats leg cooked on he BBQ. We did not mention until eaten. It was excellent.

The best part of my weekend was a text from Oliver Sherwood with some brilliant news..

We have no runners today but he Irish Grand National will need watching. One English runner..

The Workman’s Friend by Brian O’Nolan.

When things go wrong and will not come right,
Though you do the best you can,
When life looks black as the hour of night –
A pint of plain is your only man.

When money’s tight and hard to get
And your horse has also ran,
When all you have is a heap of debt –
A pint of plain is your only man.

When health is bad and your heart feels strange,
And your face is pale and wan,
When doctors say you need a change,
A pint of plain is your only man.

When food is scarce and your larder bare
And no rashers grease your pan,
When hunger grows as your meals are rare –
A pint of plain is your only man.

In time of trouble and lousey strife,
You have still got a darlint plan
You still can turn to a brighter life –
A pint of plain is your only man.
