It was great to welcome owners Steven Smith and Dave Mahon to the gallops on Saturday on a beautiful work morning.

We have entered Beautiful People for Fontwell and the weekend and will decide whether she goes there or to Huntingdon on Wednesday.

Looking forward to having runners at Huntingdon on Thursday with Totterdown and Arctic Chief entered.

Enjoyed my annual golf match against my old teachers and schoolmates at West Byfleet on Friday.  Pretty unique that we all meet up some forty years later and annoying that the teachers look younger than we do.

Fortunately a few of my schoolmates have done well enough to own a share in a racehorse or two.

Delighted to attend yesterday’s lunch at Bangor racecourse with John Francome in aid of Horatio’s Garden.  A wonderful charity that creates gardens attached to hospitals with spinal injury patients.

Bangor was the racecourse that our great friend Sharron Murgatroyd had her accident and Sharron was very much in our thoughts yesterday and would have great approved of this excellent charity.
