A record breaking weekend and yes it was hot here too.

Todays racing news..

ITV racing might be losing its crown jewels, well flat racings at least, as they are in discussion with Ascot as to whether they keep their coverage.. It would be a huge shame if Ascot and ITV were to part.

The other big news is that Paul and Clare Rooney are cutting back on their racing commitments and reducing the size of their string.

About 25 of their horses will be heading to Doncaster’s Goffs sales in September including the two horses that we currently have in training for the Rooney’s ..the bumper winning mare The Milan Girl and an unraced mare called Catch Me Not.. If anybody is interested in either of these two horses please do get in touch.

Found in today Times...As wickets fell in Leeds, one man made a wordplay out of the drama.

Benedict Bermange, the Sky Sports statistician, tweeted that England’s last three batsmen formed the real name of Cary Grant.

Well, they did if you said Archer-Broad-Leach with a slur, which most people at the Test did by that stage.
