    Darn it; family meal didn't happen so we could have gone. Would have loved to have been there. He'll get lots of media work; they were talking about him on W Hill Racing today and saying how great he is to work with.

    This is a good audio interview with Patrick Mullins - I enjoyed it

    He comes across very humble and grounded

    She's getting some good rides from WPM to add to her other supporters and weight is no problem, she did 9-6 on the flat last week in Killarney.

    Interested to watch Cieren Fallon today in the first at York (he replaced Tudhope on My Lord and Master). Missed the break but didn't panic, one smack then hands and heels to finish a good second. I was quite impressed given his inexperience. He really got the horse to run. Apparently looks after the horse at home.

    Two rides over hurdles. At this rate his price of 5/4 for the Irish jockeys title is a nonsense. The obvious alternative is Paul Townend, but the worry is that Ruby will take enough plum rides to mess him up.

    Davy maybe but plenty of his rides will be shuffled around too.
