Where has all the common sense gone?  Darryl Holland failed to weigh-in after finishing fourth at Southwell yesterday afternoon and was consequently handed a four day ban which rules him out of the Chester Cup meeting next month.  Fair enough I hear you say, but dig a little deeper and you will realise that with only nine runners, it wouldn't affect betting on the race, and furthermore there was no prizemoney for the fourth horse - so where is the problem?  Surely a slap on the wrist would have sufficed rather than putting him on the sidelines for four days - the world has gone mad!

Johnny_HatJohnny "The Hat" Farrelly has been nominated for an award at tonight's Lesters awards.  Johnny is in contention for the conditional jockeys award and goes up against Rhys Flint, Campbell Gillies and Harry Skelton - I would pay good money just to be there to hear Johnny's speach if he were to win it!  I wonder if he has a special hat put back just for the occasion?!  Unsurprisingly A P McCoy is up for three awards - he has just recently moved to a bigger house and I understand that was because he didn't have enough room for all his awards and trophies!

I had better wish Her Majesty The Queen a happy birthday.  Our monarch is 85 years young...maybe I shouldn't have mentioned her age - it could be off to the Tower for me!  If this blog isn't updated tomorrow, you probably know what has happened!

What an entertaining football match between Spurs and Arsenal last night culminating in a 3-3 draw.  Personally I think they should have an extra official sat next to Gunners manager Arsene Wenger for the entire evening - that way it would save him standing up all night moaning at the officials on the touch line!  I reckon he would be a great candidate for the television series Grumpy Old Men!
