Off to Newbury today now the course has passed their inspection.  Hoping Present From Dubai can put up a good show.  We have made a few entries for next week and hoping that the rain finally stops.

We had a productive work morning preparing runners for next week.

Nick Rust yesterday announced his intention to step down as Chief Executive of the BHA at the end of this year.  Nick is a great character and engaging company and no one could doubt his love and enthusiasm for the sport.  Anyone in that job has my sympathy and in many respects he has been a breath of fresh air compared to previous appointments.

He deserves a life of less stress in 2021 and we look forward to him being one of Adlestrop’s owners once again.
