My children are very innocent, and it can be a joy. Maddy, my 11 year old daughter, is forever writing little stories about girls around the world. A few weeks back she walked in while Jane and I were watching tv;

Maddy : Dad – I’m writing a story about a girl in the Amazon. Should I call her Minge or Munge ?
Me : I would go for Munge
Maddy : What do you think Mum – Minge or Munge ?
Jane : Munge – definitely Munge

Her latest story is about a girl living in an indian village – she is called Titty.

The horses have gone off the boil since Ascot. Manor House has had five seconds and five thirds since the last win – frustrating. Our 2yos all seem to need the run – I’m not sure why. I have plenty of runners coming up, at Manor house and elsewhere. Electric Qatar and Juno the Muffinman should both win. I have a share of Toucan Tango with Peter Chapple-Hyam – he should go well on Wednesday in first time blinkers.
