Plus 13 and dry when driving in.. 3mm of rain overnight. Pitch black for first lot..

Traffic.. one of the many nightmares for trainers and jockeys alike..Friday traffic especially..

Yesterday was a shocker as I failed to make Uttoxeter..The M5 through to and past Worcester was grid locked and the M5/M6 corridor was no better…. Frustratingly I watched Inflagrante run on my phone while sitting in a service area on the M6...The benefit of modern technology... It took just as long to get back to Thorndale..

Inflagrante finished 4th and David Bass said the ground rode faster than when he rode him there last time and that Inflagrante was never happy on it…. Good ground??

Blazon has retired after his 50th run.. Sadly no fairy tale exit. He finished 5th.. He will have a great home once we or rather Clare has found him one.. Blazon has been a star for his owners and given them many fun days, mostly on the all weather. In fact he won eight races on his favoured surface, including one bumper.

Saturday morning...David Bass and Johnny Burke were in to ride out.. Ciaran Gething is off today.. he has a broken bone in his hand and has a very bruised arm after his fall off Thruthelookinglass...Could have been far worse..

We jumped a few and worked a few too.

Today is World Stroke Day... Symptoms

Not good news that England’s T20 match against Australia was washed off.. They might not qualify now. they need to win their next two matches and then they are still not guaranteed to make it to the semis..

A cabbie picks up an Irish Nun in San Francisco. She gets into the cab and notices that the VERY handsome cab driver won't stop staring at her.

She asks him why he is staring. He replies: 'I have a question to ask, but I don't want to offend you.'

She answers, 'My son; you cannot offend me. When you're as old as I am and have been a nun as long as I have, you get a chance to see and hear just about everything. I'm sure that there's nothing you could say or ask that I would find offensive.'

'Well, I've always had a fantasy to have a nun kiss me.'

She responds, 'Well, let's see what we can do about that: you have to be single, and you must be Catholic.'

The cab driver is very excited and says, 'Yes, I'm single and Catholic!'

'OK,' the nun says. 'Pull into the next alley.'

The nun fulfils his fantasy with a kiss that would make a hooker blush.

But when they get back on the road, the cab driver starts crying.

'My dear child,' said the nun, 'Why are you crying?'

'Forgive me, but I've sinned. I lied, and I must confess; I'm married, and I'm Jewish.'

The nun says, 'That's OK. My name is Kevin, and I'm going to a Halloween party.'

On that note have a very good weekend and don't forget the clocks go back at 1am tomorrow..
