Plus 8 and dry when driving in. We had 5mm of water land on us last night.

David Bass was in for a couple of lots and we worked a few and then jumped Aliandy, Dueling Banjos, Ballyknock Lad, Allez Encore, King Simba and Charbel. A video of the mornings workings can be seen here and the horses schooling here.

John and Liz Wills were here first lot to watch Net Work Rouge go though his paces and discuss plans.

Martin Kidson-Trigg and Clive Webb-Carter were here for 'a morning on the gallops followed by breakfast'.. Another Charity auction prize which was bought two years ago.

Sue Tagg and Mel Pyman were here late morning to see their two KBRP horse Boolavard King and Our Belle Aime

Steve Dennis was also here late morning to write my Stable Tour for the Racing Post.. Keeps Mat happy!!

Yesterdays visit from the vet was encouraging as we gastro scoped over 20 horses and all were OK. Having said that Nam Hai my intended flat runner today at Nottingham scoped marginally wrong in his trachea wash so he remains here.. annoying.

We do though have one runner today and that is Gold Man at Fakenham.

Gold Man has certainly had his mishaps ..a former point to point and bumper winner he was brought down first time out this season and un seated his jockey last time. David Bass takes over and for my thoughts please click here..
