    Well done Digger and Roddy.

    For those that's interested, Airlie Beach (in foal to Mount Nelson) just sold for 140k euro. Her unraced half-sister, in foal to Shantou, went for 42k.
    The older I get the better I was.

    Nice one Digger!

    Our syndicate horse Cape Hideaway runs in the 3.25 Hexham - he is expected to handle the ground and thought to be in good form - the worry is the weight he has to carry so a small e/way for me.

    Un Guet Apens is expected to run in the last at Newcastle on Saturday. We should be bottom weight and go with an ew shout in what is a very good race.

    That's disappointing for you after being so patient and finally getting him back to winning form.

    I'm hoping we get a Talking Horses title-fight in the Borders Nash at Kelso on Sunday.

    Buachaill Alainn entered for Roddy 'Hammer of the Valleys' Owen, and Un Guet Apens entered for Dave 'The Prince' Graham.


    Let's get ready to rumble!

    If only we hadn't declared for Haydock instead! We'll beat Roddy another day.

    Congratulations once again with Play The Ace today, Roddy. Four in a row, six this year, winning is an excellent habit no matter how narrow the margin.

    The roll of honour for the Fairyhouse race reads
    2016 Yorkhill
    2015 Killultagh Vic

    Kemboy also entered in the Thurles race.

    Excellent performance from Play The Ace Roddy. Good luck Archie with Bunk Off Early, which is something I wish I could do today.

    Cornborough gives our syndicate its first runner at Cheltenham 1.20 today. I don't believe he is strongly fancied but you never know? Hopefully he'll get some prize money and come back safe and sound. Can't be there as have booked all holidays left for Christmas but the race will be interesting as our trainer will be in competition with his brother, who has a runner, for bragging rights.
