Good to school some of the string first thing this morning.  Looking forward to some runners in the next couple of weeks over jumps and on the flat.

Yesterday we had our annual ‘Apistles’ lunch (similar to the Apostles but we like a drink) – a twelve horses to follow competition for the flat each each year.

This year the winner was Chris Humber who took the trophy from last year’s victor Aiden Murphy.  A very enjoyable lunch was had by all at the Chequers at Churchill and we look forward to next year’s competition with relish.  I finished mid div this year and blame it entirely on Aiden O’Brien.
