A great sporting weekend, highlighted by Jordan Spieth’s incredible composure in winning the open.  Great to see England’s women win the cricket world cup, may it encourage many others and hope they get paid more than the men, as they find it hard to win world cups.

Many of the string are now back in from their summer holidays, looking happy and well.  Made entries for the weekend and the beginning of next week.

Saturday at Ascot is one of my favourite races of the year with the King George.  It will be fascinating if Oaks winner Enable, takes on the older horses.  She would surely have a great chance if she runs.

Although it will only be two weeks since she won the Irish Oaks, I believe Dahlia won it just seven days after victory at the Currah.
