David's Update

Chester's Chat

Brilliant Ben!


There was a somewhat truncated National Hunt programme last week with the jumps action finishing on Wednesday and as such we were limited to just the three runners. They were spread far and wide with Dell’ Arca contesting the Kerry National at the Listowel Festival in Ireland. I am pleased to report that the horses continue to perform well as the bulk of the string continue their preparation for the core part of the season – after all, the first fixture of the new campaign from Cheltenham is little over a month away!  Read more...

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Ayr, Newbury and Newcastle, while there is a jumps card from one of our local tracks, Newton Abbot.  David has three runners at Newton; Acker Bilk, Take The High Road and Dream Free.  After 20mm of rain overnight at the track the ground has changed from good/firm to good/soft (good in places) and that should suit our runners down to the ground (excuse the pun)!  Acker Bilk contests the 2m1f novices' hurdle at 3.15pm - he was a ready winner on his hurdling debut at Worcester last time and while he is penalised for that success he should go very well under Tom Scudamore.  David saddles two in the conditional jockeys' race at 3.45pm - Dream Free and Take The High Road will both need to improve on the form they have shown thus far to figure.
