Paricolor completed a nap hand of victories this season by winning the selling hurdle at Wetherby yesterday.  Making much of the running, he was always in control despite a heart-stopping moment where he blundered at the final flight of hurdles.  He has had a tremendous season and it would be no surprise to see him add to his tally before the end of the season.  He clearly gets on very well with conditional jockey Fergus Gillard and the pair were recording their seventh success together.  Meanwhile, Major Robinson took a big step forward, finishing second to hot favourite Roxboro Road who was well-in on his return to hurdles.  He kept on in good fashion over this longer trip and there are definitely races to be won with him.

What A Moment finished fourth in the staying handicap chase, plugging on in the closing stages.  They went very fast early on and he was closing on the leaders in the straight, albeit not quickly enough.  He is another that is capable of winning again from his current mark.

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with three all-weather flat meetings taking place (hold me back!) from Newcastle, Lingfield and Chelmsford City.  The big meeting of course is at Lingfield where it is all-weather championships day.  One race is worth £25,000, whilst the remaining six races are worth at least £75,000.  I know that there never used to be racing of any description on a Good Friday, but I am still not convinced at the value of having three all-weather meetings on.  I would have thought that at least one jumps card would have been a good idea.

Two men were watching a Western on television.  As the hero rode on horseback towards a cliff edge one of the men said, "I will bet you £50 he goes over the cliff."
"You're on," said the other man.
The hero rode straight over the cliff.
As the second man handed over the money, the first man looked at it and said, "I feel a bit guilty about winning because I have seen the film before."
"So have I," said the second man.  "But I didn't think he'd be stupid enough to make the same mistake twice."
