We had a new work watcher this morning (pictured).  The rain is upsetting our plans for runners, so made more entries for next week.

Interesting news from Yarmouth yesterday with the wrong horse winning the race – a three-year-old winning a two-year-old race.  The trainer said it was a genuine, honest mistake which was disappointing as it would have been far more fun had it been a plan.

Pricewise chooses Defoe and Crystal Ocean as his selections for the St Leger.  My two fancies are Venice Beach at 25-1 and Benbatl at 20-1.  The latter runs in the King George tomorrow and if putting up a good show, could well be shorter come the big day.  He was running on very well in the Derby and was impressive at Ascot last time.
