Quiet canters for the horses and it may stay that way looking at the weather forecast, the ground at Newbury was surprisingly quick. I thought Outlawjessejames ran with credit in a decent race and Kateson found the ground on the fast side. Kateson was running a nice race until the pace lifted from three out. Johnbb is there for another day, he doesn’t want deep ground but he doesn’t want it that lively either.

I experienced something I hadn’t done previously today - eating Cottage Pie out of a cardboard box, if your hungry and that is what is on offer who cares what it is in.
Having driven from Herefordshire to Newbury I saw very little evidence of a second lockdown, it would appear that many are not going to follow the rules and this will be a long haul. The chancellor clearly listened to traffic reports before announcing furlough would be extended until March 2021.
Some of you may recall Pokémon George and the doddery old man I found lost in Herefordshire thrown across my railings one afternoon. It is hard to believe he was once a formidable point to point rider.
