Plus 11 and dry when driving in.

It was wet here yesterday (14mm) but nothing like it was further down South.. Ascot (43mm) looked testingly wet whether for horse, rider or racegoer

Difficult day for Archie Watson who lost to the American in the stewards room and a good day for Hughie Morrison.

I tuned in early afternoon yesterday to watch the Funeral Director's livestream of the Service for Richard Morgan.. sadly it suffered from technical problems (I thought it was just my slow broadband).. Richard was a very good man and played a major part in mine and my son Harry’s life..

I don’t often watch football and last night I remembered why.

This came from a mate who has just come out of hospital..

Thank God that’s over…once a year or so I watch a game of football, just to check if I was always wrong or if it’s still shite!!

It’s still shite!!! The ways in which it is shite are too numerous to list here and I really can’t be bothered…I wasted 90 minutes of precious life last night watching the rubbish!!

Thankfully I can now resume watching fully dedicated athletic, professionals who are totally committed, play for each other, without cheating to gain advantage…and are fearless…

Thank god for Rugby!!!

Mat back from Devon.. 2 day stag party.. clay pigeon shooting, golf, go karts and drinking!

A box of Gold Cup Salmon Flies arrived in the post .. A gift from Cheltenham Racecourse for my zoom call to their in house South West Racing Syndicate to discuss their new horse Marton Abbey.. I hope both will collect plenty of prizes!!

Ciaran Gethings was in this morning.. Videos taken of horses in the yard.. that did not take too long..
