     Mutanaqel runs at Plumpton today

Today we have three meetings and two of them are over jumps at Plumpton and Uttoxeter.  There is also a flat card at Hamilton.  David has two runners at Plumpton.  Malangen and Mutanaqel run in the 4pm race, a juvenile hurdle.  There are 10 runners in the race and both of our runners have the benefit of experience as they have both run well on their hurdles debut.  Malangen was fourth at Worcester and Mutanaqel was fifth at Fontwell.  Both horses were quite green on their hurdling debut and should improve quite a lot for their experience although they will have to to win this race.  Tom Scu is on board Malangen while David Noonan rides Mutanaqel.

Today there are six meetings, all on the flat at Ayr, Newbury, Chelmsford, Newmarket, Catterick and Wolverhampton.  It was not quite as we hoped for the yard at Newton Abbot yesterday.  We were expecting a big run from Acker Bilk but unfortunately our four year old pulled up 3 out.  He was found to be lame so fingers crossed we can get him back right and I am sure he will be back in the winners enclosure again in the non too distant future.  Dream Free ran well enough on his handicap debut to finish fifth and I thought it was a decent enough run.  Maybe better ground and a slightly shorter trip may help next time.

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.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with the action all coming on the flat from Ayr, Pontefract, Yarmouth and Chelmsford City.  Tom Scudamore's long journey up to Kelso failed to pay off yesterday as Geordiesbest could finish only fourth - it looks like he is not as good as the great footballer that he was named after...mind you, not many players were.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Yarmouth, Sandown and Beverley while there is a jumps fixture from Kelso.  There are no runners from Pond House today although stable jockey Tom Scudamore makes the long journey all the way up to Kelso for just one ride in the last race.  Let's hope that it goes well otherwise it is going to seem like a very long journey home!  It could well be worth following the 'one ride' theory today.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with the action all coming on the flat from Yarmouth, Redcar, Lingfield and Kempton.  Midnight Sapphire finished fourth at Worcester yesterday afternoon.  It could well be that she just did not perform as well on her second run back after a long lay-off - she didn't run badly, although this was not an improvement from her Newton Abbot effort where she always seems to go so well.  She looked to be giving of her best all the way and you can't ask for more than that.  There are certainly races in her based on her reappearance effort.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Brighton and Kempton as well as jumps fixtures from Hexham and Worcester.  Well done to the jumps tracks who have managed to provide better prize money than either of the flat courses.  There is one runner from the stable today as Midnight Sapphire (pictured above) contests the 2m7f handicap hurdle at Worcester at 4.20pm.  She ran a lovely first race for the stable after a long absence when runner-up at Newton Abbot last month and she is entitle to improve for the outing.  She is 5lbs higher today but a repeat of that last effort would see her right there again under Tom Scudamore.
