Made some flat entries for the end of next and hopefully we will have some entries for next weekend.  There is some welcome rain about this morning.

I had an enjoyable day at Lords yesterday despite there being no play thanks to rain.  It was great to be a guest of Simon Tindall in his wonderful box, with lots of friends in attendance including owner Willie Murdoch, J A McGrath and the Hendersons.

Many of racing’s great and good were there despite the weather and I travelled up on the train with Charlie Longsdon.  It took him 14 minutes to realise we were in a quiet zone.
