It's a cold morning once again, very overcast and we have had some light drizzle for about half an hour. We've had no wind but it's certainly not a lovely spring day. There are plenty of staff in this morning and we have been able to get on well at first and second lot mainly using the Rubbing House polytrack. We have no runners over the weekend and it's not until Tuesday that I have anything entered.

I thought that the starts this week at Cheltenham had been going reasonably well considering what is at stake and how all the jockeys want to be in the right place. However I think the starter was at fault yesterday when he released the tape with a horse at right angles to it. There was no excuse for not seeing the horse and it must be so disappointing for all involved. Let's hope it all goes smoothly today.

We are covering the mares well at the moment and it will be a very busy time in the next fortnight. They are gettting in foal well but in this day and age of such scientific timings you often get twin pregnancies. This means that one has to be pinched out at an early stage which is quite a tricky procedure but nowadays is very common.

Well done to Richard for taking the lead in our competition but it is not over until the last result is called and let's hope there are a lot of twists and turns along the way today. It's been a fantastic Cheltenham with some sparkling performances and now everything moves on to Liverpool and Punchestown. (See below for the final tips and the results so far.)
