Plus 9 and raining when driving in.

Another Bank holiday today.. Yesterday has historically been the worse day to drive and yet again it was.. 4 and ½ hours to Wetherby.. normally just under 3.

We had a good turn out of owners, The PG Tipsters, to see their horse Phantom Getaway run. He looked an old fashioned 3 mile chaser in the paddock and ran like one to finish 5th in what could be a well above average bumper. This lovely horse will now go hurdling and long term fences and staying chasing.. David Bass was very complementary after.

One For Rose has been a very difficult horse to train and sadly his problems have caught up with him.. He won two last season and frankly we have to say that was a job well done. Now new pastures..

Shall I talk about the cricket.. England spent more time in isolation than they did when loosing the first three Ashes Test matches.. Shocking..

A Welsh Grand National staying in Wales .. again.. Well done to Sam Thomas.

Shishkin brilliant.. I am sure NJH just wanted to say FO to those who doubted that he was doing the right thing by missing The Tingle Creek at Sandown ..

This weeks movers and shakers in the BHA charts were Lady Of The Night down 2 to 117 and Samatian enters at 95.

We have one runner today at Leicester. Starvoski heads there and for my thoughts please click here.

A woman is giving birth and her husband rushes to the hospital to be there.

On his way, he decides to call the hospital to see how she’s doing but he accidentally calls Lords cricket ground instead.

Someone answers and the husband asks, “Hi. How’s everything going there?”

The reply came, “Well… we have three out and hope to have the rest out by lunch. Last one was a duck.”
