Plus 5 and dry when driving in… Not for much longer judging by the forecast.

Christmas Day. Always a great family day and it started early with a phone call from Harry who is in Singapore for the holiday period.. Rainy season there which is far removed from where he is based in Sydney.

Church in Whittington packed and then lunch with Clare’s parents and brother. Yes a lovely family day.

Back to Boxing Day..

A normal working day for us even though we don’t have any runners. Our planned runners were going to have been at Huntingdon.

So a chance to watch racing from home with no pressure and then write my article for the Horse and Hound.

The King George might only have 6 runners but what a good race it is too...

Will Cyrname stay. Yes…

will Clan Des Obeaux win it for a second time ..No..

Will Lostintranslation show that last season novice chaser were the best for years. Yes.

Basically I dont know who will win..

When Jimmy Anderson steps on the Supersport Park cricket ground today in South Africa it will be his 150th England cap..

Whatever you are doing today.. enjoy..

Hat Trick..

Batsman was out first ball of the over. New man in got out in the next ball.

On the walk back to the pavilion, he passed the incoming batsman, a pompous rival. "Tough luck. Better luck next time, old man," he said tongue in cheek.

"Yes. It's a shame I had to be right in the middle of a hat trick, see you soon" the other shot back.
