Plus 14 and dry when driving in.

Pleased to be dry as yesterday was not a nice day.. It was a day for battening down the hatches.. over 2 inches of rain in my rain gauge..I still don’t believe it tells the truth..

David Bass, Ciaran Gething and Chester Williams were in to ride out. We worked a few and jumped Shantou Express, Shinobi, Red River, Commodore Barry and Sadlemor.

Mary Dulverton was here second lot see her horses Talk Of Fame, Sammeo, Sayadam, Happygolucky, Inawhilecrocodile and True Glory.

Third lot Ian and Pam Farnsworth were here to see their KBRP horse Galante De Romay

Alan James was here to see his KBRP horses Chazza, Lord Apparelli, Donnie Brasco, Shinobi, Does He Know and Voyburg.

My afternoon spent at the dentist.. more masks on them than me.. apparently.

Tonight I have a Zoom conference call with the member of the Jockey Clubs and Cheltenham Racecourse's SWS to talk about their horse Hes No Trouble.. David Bass and Simon Claisse are also on the call button..

Jimmy Anderson 600 test wickets..

The BHA announced its 9 point recovery plan ..

A doctor, whom an 80-year-old woman who had been consulting most of her life, has finally retired. 

At her next check-up, the young new doctor told her to bring a list of all the medicines that had been prescribed for her. 

As the doctor was looking through these his eyes grew wide as he realized Grandma had a prescription for birth control pills. 

"Mrs. Smith, do you realize these are birth control pills?" 

"Yes, they help me sleep at night." 

"Mrs. Smith, I assure you there is absolutely nothing in these that could possibly help you sleep!" 

She reached out and patted the  doctor's knee and said, "Yes, dear, I know that.  But every morning, I grind one up and mix it in my 16-year-old granddaughter's glass of orange juice.  And believe me it definitely helps me sleep at night." 

Got to love grandmas!
