Viva Rafa runs today in the 4.20pm at Warwick.  He is dropping back in trip and he will wear cheek pieces for the first time.  Hopefully this will bring about the necessary improvement to get his head in front.

He is a frustrating horse that has his issues but if he gets into a jumping rythym today, hopefully he will put up a good show.

I spent the weekend on my annual visit to Jersey as a guest of owner Bunny Roberts.  Delighted to play in her Animal Health Trust Golf day and thrilled to be in the winning team headed by owner Steven Smith.

It is always a jolly occasion for a very worthy cause and Bunny’s hospitality is legendary.

Thank you for everyone’s kind messages for my birthday and to team Phillips for the lovely birthday cake.
