Plus 12 and raining when driving in. 20mm of rain overnight. Very dark for first lot..

Oli and Panda Christie, Clare and I went to The Nook for supper last night.. We thought it would be a good idea to see what it was like before my night  there next week (sell out).. We enjoyed our night and the food was good..

This email arrived last night from Wyn and Helen

'Just a note to thank you so much for your warm welcome this morning, the lovely breakfast and the tour of the immaculate stables and gallops.  We thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity of meeting you and having a back stage view of such a prestigious racing yard.  It was lovely to see happy staff who obviously enjoyed their work along with quality horses.'  

The great Kohli scored a ton to power India's victory over Bangladesh ....Australia take on Pakistan today

Wet it was for a schooling session this morning.. we jumped…Brendas Asking, Derstroythevidence, El Rio, Fair Frontiers, First Flow, Heros De Romay, Grande Escaparde, Lady Gwen, Law Of Supply, Magical Escape, Percy Veering, Sprucefrontiers, Halligator, Tregele, Von Halliers and Zmiinyi.

Sorry but no videos and not many good photos.. too wet and dark..even the gallop cam has gone on strike!

Friday brought a vet visit as per norm.. ever hopeful that one day it will be for coffee only!

We have two runners today weather permitting, hard to believe I am saying that when we took a horse (Samatian) out earlier this week at Hereford for being too firm!

Uttoxeter failed to pass its inspection..Bugger! Fakenham off too! and now Stratford and Market Rasen tomorrow..

I am sorry but this world is so depressing at the moment that I thought this little bit of Irish humour might make a few of you chuckle?

Out of manners and to prevent sunburn, he keeps a hat over his private parts..

A women walked past sniggering and says..’’If you were a gentleman you would lift your cap’’

Paddy replies, If you weren’t so fecking ugly it would lift itself!
