Have been sitting on a boat going round the Greek islands which l can thoroughly recommend as long as your skipper knows what he’s doing. Luckily we where in the hands of Johnny Seth-Smith who was far more able than l gave him credit for and had a lovely boat which we all took turns to steer.

We had a wonderful day last Friday at Sandown where we sponsored a race for a great friend and owner of mine in Judy Maynard. We called the race The Judy Maynard ‘Hello Darling’ Maiden Stakes, and we had a box with lots of Judy’s friends in, and the racecourse looked after us really well.

We have hardly got any horses in at the moment and are getting ready to get them back next month when l should think they will be quite pleased to come in.  This week l have got four days at Royal Ascot where l can catch up with a lot of my owners and maybe sell the odd horse!  I remember an Ascot week a few years ago when my ex said ‘I’m a very naughty girl,’ biting her lip,’l need to be punished.’ So l invited my mother to stay for the weekend!
