Off to Kempton today to saddle Secret Look in the 3pm. He has had a bit of a break and hopefully he will run well despite the draw.

Getting back to normal after last week’s brilliant Festival and looking forward to Sizing John, Douvan, Yorkhill, Neon Wolf etc taking each other on in the Gold Cup in a couple of years from now.  Would be nice if Thistlecrack could join in as well.

Happy birthday to Norman Francome, father of John who is 90 today.  We gave him a call from the office this morning and he has kindly offered to take my secretary Jo, on a cruise when he is a bit older.

Norman is a wonderful character and you can see where John gets all his charm and goodwill from.
