Festival Ahead!

A couple of winners on the week courtesy of Doctor Harper (pictured above) and Taj Badalandabad kept the scoreboard ticking over and at the time of writing our seasonal tally stands at 52. With Cheltenham Festival Trials day already in the rear view mirror, the focus now switches to the big event itself which is now only six weeks away. As you can tell from the countdown timer on the left-hand side of every one of my web pages, the entire season is geared towards the Cheltenham Festival which is to all intents and purposes the ‘Olympics of horseracing’.  Read more...

Well, it's another wet and windy start to the day and we have three meetings to look forward to with jumps action from Fakenham and Musselburgh as well as an all-weather flat card from Wolverhampton.  David runs Navanman (pictured above) in the 4.20pm race at Fakenham which is a 2m7 1/2f handicap hurdle.  He runs with a 7lbs penalty for his easy success last week at Towcester and if he reproduces that form he will win again.  He is due to go up 15lbs in future handicaps, so he is effectively 8lbs 'well-in' this afternoon.  As a former Irish pointer he should appreciate the extra distance and Tom Scudamore takes over on board.
