Plus 15 and dry when driving in.

They do a good job at Southwell and for a small racecourse they try hard.

Sadly I am not sure Gerard Mentor needs to go there again as it is the second time he has fallen at the last.

Both times he jumped the hurdle fine and both times he failed to extend his landing gear.. Why? I don’t know because he is normally a good jumper… Thankfully he is none the worse for the experience.

Tuesday morning brings a vet visit and possible mover and shaker in the weekly BHA handicap charts. Ajero went up 1lb to 97 which annoyingly rules him out of trying to win the race he won at Goodwood last year..

John and Paul Benson were here mid morning to see their KBRS horses Parc d'Amour, El Rio and Phantom Getaway.

A big happy birthday to my daughter Pandora.. We had the pleasure of her son Otto here for last weekend while she was down at Hickstead helping her Mother..

A man and his wife check into a hotel.

The husband wants to have a drink at the bar, but his wife is extremely tired so she decides to go to their room to rest.

She lies down on the bed. Suddenly a train passes by very close to the window and shakes the room.

Thinking this must be a freak occurrence, she lies down once more. Again a train shakes the room and throws her onto the floor.

Irritated, she calls the front desk and asks for the manager.

The manager says he’ll be right up. The manager is skeptical but the wife insists the story is true.

“Look, lie here on the bed — you’ll be thrown right to the floor!”

So he lies down next to the wife.

Just then the husband walks in.

“What are you doing here?!” the husband asks.

“Would you believe I’m waiting for a train?” the manager says.
