30th September 2017

Plus 12 and dry when driving in.

Worcester yesterday.. Thumb Stone Blues ran a blinder to finish 3rd. Jumped well and ran the same.. delighted. Robin The Raven caught us out a bit as he needed the race. Not a bad thing with a long season to go and yesterdays aim was to get him qualified for their big final next month. Anyway he too finished third.

Last night McCoys award dinner was a big night. Lots of noise and many winners..I nominated Liam Higgins for stable staff member of the year.. Higgs did not win but out of 40 nominees he finished in the first 4.. A prize for him, although no money!

Husbands do sleep (usually) with their wives and probably chat about what they have been doing that day.. even if they are not allowed to!

Busy morning..

We have no runners over the weekend but will be watching the TV to see how the races unfold here and abroad.. Arc weekend is always a winner.

We have extended the closing date for my in house free 5 to follow competition to 9am on Wednesday morning October 4.

Thanks for all the kind messages over the demise of my car..or my brain
