Getting back to winter ways

Aagh, those late-night evening meetings kill you.  Well, in the middle of the summer it never really seems like late-night racing, but when it's already dark by the time that you race, and you're still three or four hours from home when you do race - well, it does seem like the middle of the night.  As it also does when you get up the following morning, when it's still dark.  Ah well, that's the next six months of winter ahead of us, so we had better get used to it.  Still, at least the weather is still good, and at least Blue Sea Of Ibrox (pictured) ran adequately behind what seems a very high-class filly, Bess Of Hardwick - even if it would have been nicer if it had been merely Bess Of Hardwick in front of us, rather than Bess of Hardwick plus four others.  Let's hope that there are fewer horses in front of Cottesloe in the 5.15 at Newmarket in a couple of hours' time - and the boon is that, whatever happens, the journey home should be shorter.
