Plus 12 and dry when driving in.

We woke to terrible news from Manchester. Thoughts for all involved.

Tom Bellamy was in this morning.. we worked Forgotten Hero, Sunblazer and Patsys Castle.

I was on the road early heading to Goffs Sales in Doncaster. It looks like a warm few days so the sales area will be dusty!

This weeks movers and shakers in the BHA handicap charts are.. Boy in a Bentley up 5 to 117, Patsys Castle new chase mark of 105, Royal Supremo up 2 to 117 and Such a Legend up 2 to 126.

Graham Potts our vet was in for his Tuesday visit.. Not much for him to see.

We have no runners today.

There was a discussion about the cost of entry into Premiership football matches where ticket prices of £60 or £100 per game is not uncommon.

An elderly chap being interviewed said he could recall many years ago arriving at the turnstiles when the attendant greeted him with:  "That will be ten quid, mate".
"What?" the old chap said, "I could get a woman for that!"

Without batting an eyelid, the fellow on the turnstile retorted, "Not for 45 minutes each way with a brass band and a meat pie in the interval, you couldn't.”
