Plus 7 and raining when driving in.

There is no greater topic for an Englishman than the weather (well that was the case before Covid) and the next 24 hours seem to have a bit of everything in it..More meetings will go by the wayside I fear.

We have water in places I have never seen it before.

I am really sure I need to miss Fakenham.. certainly for a while.. Just not for me or Shanacoole Prince who pulled up never going..Better times when you can appreciate their wonderful hospitality..

David Bass was in this morning to ride out before heading North for two days.

We have three runners today at Doncaster. The Edgar Wallace, Starvoski and Inawhilecrocodile.. For my thoughts on all their chances please click here.

Sadly Grey Flint is for sale at £3000.00..The executors of his late owner Annabel Buchan have asked me to sell him..A genuine reason for sale. - NOW SOLD

Grey Flint has had three runs in total .. one bumper and two hurdle races and is very much a good ground horse..He was running well at Newton Abbot on his first try over hurdles and looked like being second when the saddle slipped and Ciaran Gethings slipped off..

He is sound and this lovely looking grey he will make an good summer jumper. Please ring Peter Kerr on 07901763643 or you can call me direct..

A little, silver-haired lady calls her neighbour and says, “Please come over here and help me. I have a very difficult jigsaw puzzle, and I can’t figure out how to get started.”

Her neighbour asks, “What is it supposed to be when it’s finished?”

The little lady says, “According to the picture on the box, it’s a rooster.”

Her neighbour decides to go over and help her with the puzzle. When he arrives, the old lady shows him the puzzle spread out all over the table. He studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, then turns to her and says:

“First of all, no matter what we do, we’re not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a rooster.” Then he takes her hand and says, “Secondly, I want you to relax. Let’s have a nice cup of tea, and then...” and he says this with a deep sigh...

“Let’s put all the Corn Flakes back in the box.”
