We have made some entries on Saturday and Monday for Flying Dragon and Organdi, in the hope there are suitable conditions for both.  With no suitable races on the turf for Flying Dragon he is entered at Wolverhampton – a course he has won on previously.  Whilst hopefully there will not be too much rain at Stratford on Monday for Organdi.

It was great to visit Jersey for a few days to play in owner Bunny Robert’s annual golf day in the Hunscote Stud team.  A good day was had by all as ever.  Delighted to stay on for racing yesterday at the Jersey Race Club.  Danny Hiskett made his second visit to the course to ride and although not riding a winner, it was a great experience for him.

The course is well worth a visit if you have not been before and hopefully next season we will be having some runners at the track.

Sad to hear that former England and Liverpool striker Roger Hunt, has passed away aged 83.  A great player in my childhood, I saved up Typhoo tea tokens especially to get his photograph through the post.  I hope today’s players inspire the young in the same way.
