Plus 4 and dry when driving in.

Even the BBC are now forecasting it to get cold.. Must be true..

Wetherby racecourse.. What a difference since my last visit. Their new stand and new owners and trainers facility is a revelation.. Gone the curled up sandwiches and now a plush room with good food and helpful staff..

Rosmuc Relay was impressive winning his second hurdle race yesterday. He seems to love soft ground, which is rare for a son of Presenting.

This big horse who was bought by Aiden Murphy for John Perriss at the Tattersalls Cheltenham December sale has now won both of his hurdle starts and looks a very progressive horse. He is crying out for 3 miles and fences.. that is for next season..

Yes John has a horse to dream about when he goes chasing which is what John loves to race.

I thought David Bass gave RR a very canny ride as it was not to late on in the race that he galvanised RR to win.

Bandon Roc our other runner was second.. on the face of it a far better run but he really should have won.. No blame placed on jockey as David Bass tried everything to make him win but it was not to be..Nice touch from the raceourse.. A bottle of champagne for those owners who finished 2nd, 3rd or 4th..

Talking David Bass.. He was in this morning to work and jump a few..

We jumped. Agent Memphis, Chateau Robin, Dandy Dan, Doctor Haze, El Presente, First Flow, Red River, Rhaegar, Rocky's Treasure, Sainte Ladylime, Silver Kayf and Vinndication.. A video can be seen here of the horses working and schooling here.

No owners today but a big thank you to Vince Burmingham who brought a huge bag of Ludlow sausages when he came yesterday.. Always popular here..

We have four runners today.. Kilfilum Cross , Lake Field and Milord at Ludlow and Two For Gold at Doncaster and for my thoughts on all their chances please click here.

Sorry to read that David Barons, the former West Country trainer, has died in New Zealand.. David was a hugely successful trainer who pioneered bringing New Zealand horses over to the UK..

John Disney sent this over..

As BUDDHA was quoted: "There are three things that cannot be easily  hidden, the sun, the moon, the truth."

Two Truths and 5 Rules of Life


Lovers help each other undress before sex.

However, after sex, they always dress on their own.

Moral of the story -- In life, no one helps you once you're screwed.


When a lady is pregnant, all her friends touch the stomach and say, "Congrats."

But, none of them comes up to the man - touch his penis and say, "Good job."

Moral of the story -- Hard work is rarely appreciated.
