A glorious spring morning and a glorious week ahead – a good day at the Alnwick point-to-point yesterday with Ocarina winning the Mens Open and Present Potential improving again to finish a close 2nd in a competitive NPPA race, Here’s to Harry jumped very well on his debut but predictably became a little tired and Kit pulled him up 3 out.

All eyes on the Cotswolds now but I won’t be indulging any of my guest tipsters this year, ┬áhad too much flak for the poor performance, but let’s celebrate what should be a wonderful week’s racing and hope all horses and jockeys come home safe, we have nothing heading there but will hopefully have our next runners at Hexham on Thursday (“little fish are sweet” said the late great “WA” when questioned as to why he was there rather than watching his horse The Thinker win the Gold Cup – sweet they might be but a big fish would be even sweeter – one day!).
