Plus 3 dry and foggy when driving in.

Not a good day yesterday. Monkhouse pulled up lame at Market Rasen and when I got home I found that Mrs B was in Cheltenham A&E with a similar problem. Pulled ligaments around her left knee. She is now on crutches. I hope both make full recoveries.

Tom Bellamy was here for two lots this morning before heading to ride at Southwell.

Helen Hibbert and friends Caroline and Louise were here third lot to see Helens KBRP horses Milord and Chateau Robin.

Michael and Gerry Worcester were also here to see Shaluna. Lizzie Wills called in to see her KBRP horse Un Ace

Chris Rea our vet was in for a Tuesday visit.

This weeks movers and shakers in the BHA handicap charts are..Abbreviate down 1 to 130, Braw Angus up 4 to 111, Boy In A Bentley up 5 over hurdles to 112 and up 3 over fences to 110, Milord up 5 to 122, Texas Forever down 5 to 95 over hurdles and down 1 to 99 over fences and finally  Red Spinner down 2 to 140.

We have been having a few issues with the Gallop cam.. .This mornings fog does not help but interesting enough on Saturday morning one owner was up bright an early to watch his horse working. The Last Samuri was easy to spot as he comes up on his own in front.. hope he is there next week too..!

Time flies and here we are again about to start another flat season. My string although not large will be in action in late April/early May. Yes Sunblazer will be blazing our flat trail again this summer along with Forgotten Hero?

Todays run takes him around the following racecourses.. Stratford, Warwick, Towcester, Huntingdon, Fakenham and Leicester. To support James please click here.

We have two runners at Southwell today. Fifty Bob and Champion Chase. For my thoughts please click here.

These better and warmer days are good news for our local Golf Course. Royal Shipton..

Mike Evans who owns and runs Royal Shipton is a great supporter of ours.

This one is for Mike..

Two golfers are waiting their turn on the tee when a naked woman runs across the fairway and into the woods.

Two men in white coats and another guy carrying two buckets of sand are chasing her, and a little old man is bringing up the rear.

One of the golfers grabs the old man and asks, "What's going on?"

The old guy says, "She's a nymphomaniac from the asylum, she keeps trying to escape, and we attendants are trying to catch her."

The golfer asks, "What about the guy with... the buckets of sand?"

The old man says, "That's his handicap. He caught her last time."
