We had a very good lunch in The Malt with an old owner of mine called Bill Hagon and John Davies, plus their wives. I picked my daughter Tildie up and we went down to Olympia to do a lot of Christmas shopping and we watched some very good show jumping. It was a fun evening!!
Denis O'Regan was in on first lot on Friday.
Mark Grant came in on Saturday to ride work on Elmore Back. We sent Seventh Sky up to Haydock for the Tommy Whittle. Gavin Sheehan rode him and he made all the running to win by 7 lengths. It was an extraordinary performance under top weight. It will be interesting to see what the handicapper does and I am not sure where we are going next.
We took Airpur Desbois to Fakenham on Sunday and he didn't really fire and I think he probably needs a break.
