Frost strikes, p2p off, Sedgefield off, a quiet day on the yard yesterday, horses all on the walker, all calm and relaxed. Weather looks like it could go two ways later this week, either an icy blast from Siberia is going to set in or the low moving in off the Atlantic will keep things reasonable, opinions differ, time will tell. We have no runners this week, hopefully get going again at the rescheduled Jedforest p2p on Saturday, Musselburgh on Sunday (squeezing in a trip to Murrayfield in between!) and Ayr on Mon 6th. Lucy has a busy day at Ayr today, they have passed their early morning inspection and she rides Jetmaster in the 12.50, Rossini's Dancer in the 2.20, Something Silver in the 2.55, Carters Rest in the 4.00 and Lillioftheballet in the 4.30 - a marathon eight race card, small fields (50 runners in total), poor prize money but eight races - why?
