What a week for some!

Lambourn trainer Charlie Mann stirred a few people up this week with his facebook posts and, having spoken to him at some length today the story - in all its glory is worthy of a chapter in my book. It starts with an owner who not only owes the trainer a considerable amount of money but includes a prison sentence and a trail of destruction that affects racing folk on both sides of the Emerald Isle.

Sadly my own day ran away with me and I ran out of time to write about it in more detail but given the work the NTF and the BHA are currently doing on this important matter affecting all trainers on an ever increasing scale, the weekend might have to give way to some extra typing.

Last nights runners came home just after midnight and made sure we all heard them disembark from the lorry, Troop is a bit of a devil but ran well to the furlong pole, looking like he failed to get the trip having run too fresh and too keenly in the first half of the race. Mimics Memory ran a blinder and was just outstayed in the final half a furlong, she should win again soon and tomorrows intended runners were ballotted out.
