    100% Jac, they are a wonderful lot

    I couldn’t find my 10 to follow shortlist but have swatted up a little this afternoon
    I came up with over 20 and narrowed it down to 14

    Such a shame the season may get wiped out, fingers crossed we can beat this virus.
    Not sure on the plans of the like of Battaash or Stradivarius haven’t heard anything on possibly retirements

    Japan (Star Horse) Aidan O’Brien is a genius with these mid to late improvers 20’s for the Arc thank you very much
    Pinatubo I think the mile will be fine for this horse but if not any trip under that should clean up
    Born with Pride love this filly.. :heart:
    Earthlight Looked a monster 2 y/o
    King of Change I had to stick in one of Hannon’s won the QE11 but goes on quicker ground too
    Iridessa for me should be running over 10f more
    Star Catcher lightly raced enough to have a top season again
    Victor Ludorum would take the French prizes
    Logician Scratching my head a little why ahead of Japan in Arc betting but has potential
    Battaash very impressive at York, fast ground wonder horse
    Stradivarius Lost nothing in defeat on soft going
    Threat will win at Goodwood and all the other group 2 races for 3 y/o
    Siskin I’d like to see him run again before committing myself
    Quadrilateral should be popular so I’d need to wait on deciding to leave her in or out

    Brilliant selection with Honeysuckle, Euroalien, well done on winning
    The legend that is TAPK came 2nd I heard he made a small 7 figure profit at Cheltenham
    Thanks as always Bobby, your efforts are much appreciated and you will be pleased to know that in my time of being housebound I am setting up online banking with my internet only bank card. You can never be too careful.. :rose:

    Well done with telling the doctor, Paul
    I use to be such a wimp with doctors giving blood etc but since my kidney problems feel nothing much bothers me now with regard the tests they do etc.
    I do remember having my kidney biopsy and having to lie on my front for about 24 hours and it felt like a week
    Can I share you blog on facebook, as you say you can’t have too much exposes for this type of thing and anyone reading with symptoms could push them in the right direction of a check up

    Hello all.
    Trying to keep busy so have set up internet banking. Vtc will be happy I can transfer over prize money for his 10 to follow now…. :yes:
    Jac, not sure when or if the Flat season will get underway but we should stick a 10 to follow down at some point.
    I did make a shortlist pre Cheltenham, I’ll take a look for it and stick it on here for a bit of fun
    keep well all and keep in touch
    Alex got a strop on yesterday, we created a game of hand ball, he likes Eurovision so I used the songs as a timer to the games. Day 1 I won the 1st two games, the 3rd was a draw, I won on penalty’s. Yesterday I won all 3 games and he kicked off…Not played any games today. What a sore loser… :whistle:

    Yes, I was a big fan of Paco Boy..
    He travelled sweet as a nut in that Lockinge he won
    I think the likes of Paco Boy and Canford Cliffs were made for a jockey like Richard Hughes as they could travel at a high pace on the bridle and still find enough off it although Paco Boy was excused of not finding a mile at times I think he just ran into Goldikova at a time she was unstoppable

    I was at Newbury the day Olympic Glory won the Lockinge, met up with TAPK that day too

    No, they didn’t have tv back in the day of Bill

    I love that about your Father, Hein
    I’m like that with my Son. He had to learn the reality of life from an early age having lost his Mum and has always been mature and wiser than his age which isn’t a bad thing. I’m a bit like Peter Pan in a way and he is always telling me off for messing about. I’ve been sent to my room a couple of times this week whilst he has been doing his school work… :rose:

    Some interesting things on there at the moment
    Dessie’s Gold Cup was before my racing time so enjoyed watching the story of that the other day
    Not quite sure what I’m watching now, seems to be the running of a yard, mucking out, washing down and chatting with the lads and lasses. Got the shoe maker on now

    Nice words Hein, thank you..
    Jac, sorry to make you cry, it good to have a cry now and then, I must admit to shedding a few tears this past week. The chap sat in his car talking about losing his Mum today on social media due to the virus set me off.
    BigG you were spot on, I spoke via messenger to a few of the guys and girls I work with and they all said the same thing that I should not worry or feel any guilt and that I have always done my share of getting stuck in to any challenge and its just a case of sitting this one out.
    Alex is doing his school work in the mornings giving me a lie in. I done PE lesson with him today, somekind of keep fit thing by Jo Wicks from youtube, Christ I’m unfit… :yes:

    Didn’t think you were a gambler anyway, Ginge
    thought you were an investor like those in stocks and shares
    Would it not be classed as a bad investment

    Glad to read you are doing well tb
    My Mental Health is normal pretty solid, not a lot phases me although I’m feeling it a bit at the moment.
    Not being able to do my job at the moment due to my immune system when I’m needed more than normal makes me feel guilty and a tad useless. Also a big Liverpool fan waiting for the title for 30 years only for this to come around is terrible timing… :rose:
