Plus 6 and dry when driving in. 8mm of rain here yesterday...

It was extremely wet at Fakenham yesterday and frankly it was far too soft for Lady Gwen.. Having said that she still ran an absolute blinder to finish second, especially as she was giving lumps of weight to the winner.

Lady Gwen will now have a break and return to racing in the spring. That was her 8th race since she joined us in July and her form figures read 3 wins, 2 2nds, 1 3rd and a fourth.

Excellent night of Cricket by England to level the series in The West Indies..
