Quiet Sunday ??

The long journey to Cartmel passed quickly thanks to Fivelive's excellent coverage of the racing at Epsom and a stunning Group 1 double for team Ballydoyle, our own evening slightly less productive with The Paddy Premium finishing 7th and Flaming Thistle 6th, the former was the victim of (another) bedraggled start whilst the latter struggled to go the pace on ground that was quicker than ideal for him, I always seem to come away from Cartmel smiling though despite a late evening and a long drive home, it's just that sort of place. Weary today but horses seem fine and "Blue" about to hit the road for Hexham..... not me I am sorry to say, a lot to catch up with here, meeting with builder this morning re a few new boxes and plans for the summer to be made.  Lucy back down the road to Cartmel tomorrow where she rides Srimenati in the 2.10, Lutin du Moulin in the 3.10 and Shooting Times in the 5.30 - she could do with a winner, creeping up the "cold" list, keeps hitting the cross bar but riding well so sit tight and they will come....... a few pics from yesterday thanks to my new camera (thank you Mrs A!)
Kit dodges the autograph hunters after his first ride against the "pro's"

Sister and brother head back to the Weighing Room, unplaced but unscathed!

Flaming Thistle cools off..............
