Outside Cheltenham and Aintree the best racing is to be found at Punchestown.. Their big week starts today and it is all about Elliott and Mullins.. again..It is going to be exciting to say the least.

We have a busy day on the runners front and will be hoping for a few better runs than of late..

We have 6 runners today.

Trojan Star at Exeter, Involve and Imperial Aura at Ludlow and Cloone Lady,  Milord and Chateau Robin at Huntingdon. For my thoughts on their chances please click here.

I am heading down the M5 to Exeter with Trojan Star.. I have not been racing with Matt Lambert for a while.. Mat is heading to Huntingdon ..

A Nun, badly needing to use the toilet, walked into a local pub.

The place was hopping with music and loud conversation and, every once in a while, the lights would turn off.

Each time the lights would go out, the place would erupt into cheers.

However, when the revellers saw the Nun, the room went deadly silent.

She walked up to the bartender, and asked, "May I please use the toilet ?"

The bartender replied, "OK, but I should warn you that there is a statue of a naked man in there wearing only a fig leaf."

"Well, in that case, I'll just look the other way," said the Nun.

So, the bartender showed the Nun to the back of the pub. After a few minutes, she came back out, and the whole place stopped just long enough to give the Nun a loud round of applause.

She went to the bartender and said, "Sir, I don't understand. Why did they applaud for me just because I went to the toilet ?"

"Well, now they know you're one of us," said the bartender. "Would you like a drink ?"

"But, I still don't understand," said the puzzled Nun.

"You see," laughed the bartender, "every time someone lifts the fig leaf on the statue, the lights go out."
