Plus 13 and dry when driving in.

Cheltenham announced yesterday that they have a new 4 year sponsor of their Gold Cup in March.

Magners have come to the fore.. If you are living in Ireland apparently it is known as Bulmers..yes a drink I drink, so good news!

Highclere Stud today to meet the Highclere Thoroughbred Racing Team and for them to meet their new trainer and their new horse Alfie Corbitt. My first horse for them..

Highclere Thoroughbred Racing are hosting their annual National Hunt parade and BBQ.. They have quite a string of jumpers

Lords this evening.. Taking Archie and his mate Paddy Clarkson to watch the T20 bash.. Somerset v Middlesex

Next week my all weather gallop is being refurbished.. well in fact replaced..

We are taking the surface off and then removing the tarmac base and replacing it as it has become non porous in places..

Expensive yes, but our gallop has been down for 12 years and sadly these all-weather gallops don’t last forever.  So in three/four weeks time we will have a brand new gallop with a brand new surface..

Andrews Bowen are doing all the work and we are using their racing surface.

Our sand gallop will now take all the action while this is being done

Those into their Golf will be glued to their TVs for the next few days..The Open

Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they know there is not enough money? 

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?
