Beautiful People didn’t appear to finish her race at Uttoxeter on Thursday, therefore we will investigate her wind this week.  Hopefully we can find the solution as she definitely has the ability to win a race or two.

A roasting hot weekend in Adlestrop with visits from owners Dave Mahon, then Anne Ray who gave Brave Helios plenty of carrots for his game second at Worcester.

I played golf in the Heythrop Hackers Golf Tournament at Wychwood on Saturday afternoon.  Always a fun tournament – no prizes won in the prizegiving at the Kings Head at Bledington but there is always next year.

The Inverdale family popped in on Sunday lunchtime and it was good to have a thirst quencher with them down the local.

Looking forward to Royal Ascot this week when I am lucky to be being entertained by several owner’s hospitality.  I have chosen Fastnet Rock to be the leading sire at the meeting in Geoffrey Howson’s stallion completion.  He has a few chances this week and will hopefully have a few winners at the world’s greatest flat meeting.
