Plus 5 and dry when driving in

Another bloody second!! Shocking..

Rockys Treasure actually ran an absolute blinder and was almost back to his best.. Certainly the best he has run all season and jumping off in front he was only headed at the last..

So Annoying for John Perriss who had a second on Monday with Bobhopeornohope at Ludlow and Penny had a second on Sunday at Ascot with Wandrin Star..

Annoyingly we said at Ludlow that we would be delighted to finish second with Rocky, but then when you do, you don’t like it.. as Sgt Wilson would have said..

Or as Hal Higson said.. 'You didn't beat me. You merely finished in front of me!'

My lunch yesterday was excellent.. the company was very special.. Brilliantly organised by Cornelius Lysaght, who is just back from being paid to cruise the Danube with Brough Scott..

Fellow guest Nick Cheyne drove Hugo Bevan and Commander John Ford..

All, bar Cornelius, were hugely successful clerks of the courses in their time.. Nick was Ascot and Sandown, Hugo was at Huntingdon, Worcester, Towcester and part time at Aintree, while John, who is affectionally knows as ’up periscope' was Stratford, Wolverhampton and Uttoxeter.

Wednesday and a work morning for some.

David Bass and Ciaran Gethings were in to ride out

Eloise O'Connor, who rides out here, brought her parents Toby, Jamie and sister Jemina and her Uncle Rory up to watch her ride. Eloise is heading to the BRS in the summer to do a 6 weeks course.

Phil Case was here third lot to see his KBRS horses Percy Veering, Parc d'Amour and Fair Frontieres

Graham Potts was here for his Vet visit.

We have one runner today at Market Rasen..Shantou Express heads there and for my thoughts please click here.

I am taking Archie to Bristol mid morning..

As Boycie said..'Fuel prices going up don't affect me.. I only ever put £20 in..'

To finish Happy birthday to Mick Easterby.. 91 today..
