Plus 8 and dry when driving in

Doncaster yesterday was pretty empty, although there was a decent enough turn out of owners to fill the very user friendly owners and trainers room.

Quentin and Christine Bevan along with David Bass and I all travelled together to watch and ride their horse Fubar.

Fubar ran to form and filled third place. He has been consistent and will now have a break before returning over hurdles in the first week of the new season. Hopefully he will find his preferred fast ground.

Cheltenham preview times for all those with potential runners. Jockey Club Racecourses seem to have their own production company and the were down here; Kyle Mitcheison in charge of filming Charbel (Ryanair), Vinndication (JLT or RSA), Minella Warrior (Pertemps), Rocky Treasure (Ultima Handicap Chase) and Diamond Gait (Dawn Run Mares Novice Hurdle)..

I am heading to Sky Sports Racing Sunday week and Dermot Cumiskey, the Producer of Sky Sports Racing email  instructions over.. They never arrived.. Yes they were sent to Kim Bailey but another...They were sent to a Kim Bailey in Hollywood.. That Kim Bailey replied and copied me in......  

'While I am flattered that someone would like to interview me, I do believe you have the wrong Kim Bailey.  I am the Kim Bailey from the Hollywood Film Industry..'

We have two runners today at Huntingdon. Hes No Trouble and Illuminated Beauty. For my thoughts please click here.

I am not going to Huntingdon, Matt is doing the honours there as I am heading just down the road to Cheltenham to yet another Sale.. Tattersalls 

Norman Carter sent this one over..

A man was sitting quietly reading his paper one morning, peacefully enjoying himself, when his wife sneaks up behind him and whacks him on the back of his head with a huge frying pan.

MAN: "What was that for?"

WIFE: "What was that piece of paper in your trouser pocket with the name Marylou written on it?"

MAN: "Oh honey, remember two weeks ago when I went to the horse races? Marylou was the name of one of the horses I bet on."

The wife looked all satisfied, apologises, and goes off do work around the house. Three days later he is once again sitting in his chair reading and she repeats the frying pan swatting.

MAN: "What in the world was that for this time?"

WIFE: "Your horse called."
