A good work morning with the usual collection of stop watches and heart monitors.  It’s not only Ballydoyle that have these facilities!

Owner Rob Dalziel popped in on the way to Warwick races to see Present From Dubai, who is on the come back trail following a stress fracture.  Hopefully he will be making up for lost time next season.

I will join him at Warwick as guest of the Directors who also double up as Adlestrop owners.  Warwick is a great little course and it’s always a good experience to attend.

Following many recommendations, I’ve just watched the whole series of After Life with Ricky Gervais.  It came highly recommended and I can see why.  Although I wouldn’t agree with all of Ricky Gervais’ view on animal welfare – he is a brilliantly clever man as he proved with The Office and Extras.

Anyone who’s comedy hero is Larry David is on the right track and looking forward to the next series already.

Well done Tottenham last night.  Many of my owners are Spurs fans and although this victory may not lead to a trophy, it’s always good to beat one of the best teams in the world.
