Plus 10 when driving in.

Drumreagh finished 9th at Worcester, she will come on from the experience.

We will be doing a bit more schooling today under the assistance of Rob Bevis. It really is nice that the horses get a change of scenery and further educated on their jumping. 

Brendan Conneely was here with his brother John to see his KBRP horses Yeavering Belle and Donnie Brasco.

Andrew Tinkler retired from the saddle yesterday, well apparently not retirment just a change of career to go and work alongside ex jockey Charlie Poste's horse preparation business.

On that note, we are currently looking for new staff to join the team at Thorndale for the upcoming season. Please do send through your cv or call Matt should you be looking for a job in racing. 

I stopped in to see Clare on my way home yesterday, you will be pleased to read that she was in fine form! 

Happy 50th Birthday to KBRP owner John Battershall.

Joke today provided by Charles Dingwall (thank you)

A beautiful young woman on an International flight asked the priest beside her ...

"Father, may I ask a favour?"

"Of course you may, what can I do for you?"

"Well, I bought this expensive electronic hair dryer that is well over the customs limits and I am afraid that they'll confiscate it from me. Is there any way you could carry it through customs for me? Under your robe perhaps?

"I would love to help you dear but, I must warn you, I will not lie!

"With your honest face Father, no one will question you!"

When they got to customs, the young lady let the priest go ahead of her...

The customs officer asked, "Father, do you have anything to declare?"

"From the top of my head down to my waist, I have nothing to declare!"

The Officer thought this answer strange..."And what do you have to declare from your waist to the floor?"

"I have a marvelous little instrument designed to be used on a woman but which is, to date, unused!"

Roaring with laughter, the officer said, "God bless you Father, go ahead!
