David Bass was in this morning for a couple of lots along with Tom Bellamy.. Other jockeys in.. Archie Bailey..

My taxi service was useful for David yesterday although I failed to turn the meter on when driving him home; I dropped him off at his home near Swindon on my way to Newbury..not even a coin was put in my hand as a form of appreciation!

Kieran Goddard was here to see his KBRP horses Monrocco and Kayf Storm while Shane Francis was here to see their KBRP horse Monrocco.

Dean Perkins who is a member of Imperial Racing was here to see his horse Imperial Aura.

Ian and Pam Farnsworth were here third lot their KBRP horses Knockanrawley and Silver Kayf.

Fourth lot we had a visit from the Racing For Maggies team who own Another Venture and Bisccuit and The Two Timers who own King Simba.. Both partnerships are run by Henry Kimbell.

'What are you doing in there?' the husband asked.

'I'm investigating a complaint about an infestation of moths,' the man replied.

'And where are your clothes?' asked the husband.

Have a great weekend and see you on Monday..
