It is incredible how quickly we have gone from wanting rain to having far too much of it and the abandonment of racing at Newton Abbot over jumps and Newcastle on the flat tomorrow due to waterlogging isn’t something that could have been predicted at the beginning of the month!

It is likely to be a quiet week for us but we start with four runners at Ffos Las this evening, all of whom go with decent chances. I was delighted to get a winner at the last meeting with the ultra-consistent Paradise Expected, who was gaining her third win at the course this season for owner Mike Harris, and hopefully we can come home with at least one winner tonight.
