A deeply restorative winner at Ayr yesterday when Daasij defied a 523 day lay off to win his fourth race in a row, I was absolutely delighted and it came as the second leg of a double for Lucy who had won the previous race on Secret Desert for Ferdy Murphy.  Isla Patriot ran well enough to finish 5th but Peter felt he was a little flat, I may have overdone him a little after needing the run first time out, then in the closing bumper Here’s to Harry had an incident free introduction to racing, travelling nicely until being outpaced turning for home, more to come from him.  Nothing for us at Carlisle today but Lucy rides Patriot in the 3.45.

Best news of the weekend was the safe repatriation by air ambulance and subsequent release from hospital of brother David who had a very nasty diving accident a week ago when on holiday in Teneriffe, smiles all round unlike this time last week.

IT problems this morning so no access to email to or from the Kinneston server, apologies to those of you who will be expecting your weekly horse report, tomorrow hopefully, and if anyone needs to contact me please text or message via facebook or twitter….. boring but a lovely day…….
