Soft weather, as they would say in Ireland, here this morning – ie steady warm horizontal drizzle – but an excellent one with the horses, all cantering 10f in the deep sand round school then once all the way up the all-weather and two faster halves – all seem in very good fettle, just need to do my best not to mess things up over the next month.  Quiet day on the walker and in the padocks tomorrow and then another step forward next week, beginning to think we might even have one or two ready for Perth……..

Scratch my back……..
