The stable was among the winners again yesterday when Do Ya Feel Lucky bolted up in the 2m4f handicap hurdle at Worcester under Tom Scudamore.  Making most of the running, she had most of her rivals in trouble from a fair way out and bounded clear in the straight to win by 13 lengths.  I would imagine that David will be thumbing through the programme book to find another race for her before she is reassessed by the handicapper.  Port O'Clock also ran a nice race, just being touched off in the 2m7f handicap chase on his first start for the stable.  He gave the members of the David Pipe Racing Club a real thrill and looks sure to be going one better before too long.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with a jumps card from Southwell, flat fixtures from Chepstow and Windsor and an all-weather flat meeting from Wolverhampton.  There are no runners from the Pond House team today, although we could have a couple of runners at Newton Abbot tomorrow night.

Hollie Doyle has been hitting the headlines again, winning the French Oaks aboard Nashwa, who was third in the English equivalent at Epsom a fortnight earlier.  In doing so, she became the first woman to win a European Classic at Group One level, a tremendous achievement.  She is a great ambassador for the sport and we are lucky to have her and Rachael Blackmore over the sticks showcasing their talents.

Max Verstappen was a narrow winner of the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal yesterday, beating Carlo Sainz Jr in his Ferrari by less than a second with Lewis Hamilton third and team-mate George Russell in fourth.  Verstappen is at the top of his game at present considering he may not even be in the fastest car.  The Ferrari looks very fast but a combination of mechanical and strategic factors has seen their number one driver, Charles Leclerc squander an early season lead.

27 year old Englishman Matthew Fitzpatrick landed his first golf major tournament yesterday by winning the US Open by one shot.  Golf isn't really my sport, although with over $3 million to the winner, perhaps it should have been!  It was a good weekend for the Brits, with Rory McIlroy finishing in a share of fifth place on -2.

My wife accused me of hating her family and relatives. I replied, “No, I don’t hate your relatives. In fact, I like your mother-in-law a lot better than I like mine.”
