Plus 7, foggy or perhaps murky and drizzling when driving in.

Tiger Roll's participation in this years Randox Health Grand National is all down to the handicapper.. Is this really what Eddie O'Leary said, or is it what the Racing Post believed he might have said..

Scare mongering won't change the handicapper, and it is not the BHA's job to tell the handicapper what to do.

The Grand National weights are normally compressed otherwise half the horses that run would be out of the handicap..

Tiger Roll will of course head the weights and the weights will be compressed whatever Tiger Rolls connection say..

I am sure it is all about promoting the big race.. good or bad news keeps the Grand National in focus before the count down to the big race really starts

Thursday is our easy day...

We have two runners today at Wincanton..Espoir De Romay and Wandrin Star and for my thoughts on their chances please click here.

Wandrin Star is owned by Penny Perriss and Clare and I had a very jolly evening with John and Penny last night at The old Butchers in Stow.. Excellent food and company.. Fun.

Paul Fereday sent this one over..

A store that sells new husbands has opened in London where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:

You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increases as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor or may choose to go up to the next floor but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs
She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.
'That's nice,' she thinks, 'but I want more.'

So she continues upward. The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.

'Wow,' she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.

'Oh, mercy me!' she exclaims, 'I can hardly stand it!'

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please and are all just want, want, want.

No wonder you are on you own, you deserve being left on the shelf.!

Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.


To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opened a New Wives store just across the street.

The first floor has wives that love sex.

The second floor has wives that love sex, have some money and like a beer and go to bed whenever you fancy!

The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited.
