Todays news is all about the transfer window of jockeys attracting themselves to new trainers.

Jockey Daryl Jacob has joined up with trainer Ben Pauling while Jonathan Burke has done the same with Charlie Longsdon.

Richard Johnson has now started riding for Warren Greatrex which means he has added another sting to his bow after Philip Hobbs, Henry Daly and now Ollie Murphy..

One of the reasons why Ben has aligned himself to Daryl is because Nico de Boinville is busy with Nicky Henderson and David Bass is now riding as my first jockey.. I am sure it all makes sense..

I am attending Tattersalls Ascot Sales today. Not one of my regular sales venues but since Tattersalls have taken it over it has really improved and upped its bench mark. Anyway today we are selling lot 160 Nicely Indeed to dissolve a partnership. There are a total of 200 lots on sale.

Three Aussie blokes, Mongrel, Coot and Bluey are working up on an outback mobile phone tower.

As they start their descent, Coot slips, falls off the tower and is killed instantly.

As the ambulance takes the body away, Bluey says, 'Well, bugger me, someone's gotta go and tell Coot's wife.

Mongrel says, 'OK, I'm pretty good at that sensitive stuff, I'll do it.'

Two hours later, he comes back carrying a case of Beer.

Bluey says, 'Where'd you get the grog, Mongrel?'

'Coot's wife gave it to me,' Mongrel replies.

'That's unbelievable, you told the Missus her husband was dead and she gave you a case of beer?'

'Well, not exactly', Mongrel says. 'When she answered the door, I said to her, "you must be Coot's widow."

She said, 'You must be mistaken.. I'm not a widow.'

Then I said, 'I'll betcha a case of beer you are..'

Aussies are good at that sensitive stuff !!
