Plus 4, foggy and dry when driving in.
Fakenham is a long way from home but well worth the trip when you have a winner.
Rockys Treasure never saw another horse in his 3 horse novice chase.
David Bass jumped RT off in front and stretched the field.. Jumping well and enjoying himself to win easily.. beating one other finisher.
There was plenty of banter from ATR presenter Matt Chapman in the paddock before the race. First giving me grief for not being at Fakenham, and then persuading Nico de Boinvile to admit that he was far brighter than David Bass...Not difficult!!
Post race interviews revealed that Bass was obviously far brighter as he won the race and Rockys owner John Perriss was excellent and showed that more owners need interviewing post race to talk about their horses.
Rockys Treasure has now won in Wales, Scotland, England and Ireland….
Gallery Exhibition won best turned out and finished 4th. . Fakenham is as they say a long way from here but they look after owners well and mine all enjoyed their day.
Wincanton was a disaster as Abbreviate pulled far too hard and ended up breaking a blood vessel.

The last of Charlie Dingwall's recorded comments.. yes these were actually said in court.
ATTORNEY: Are you qualified to give a urine sample?
WITNESS: Are you qualified to ask that question?
ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
ATTORNEY: I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.
Have a great weeend and see you on Monday.
