There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps fixtures from Warwick and Sedgefield as well as an all-weather flat fixture from Wolverhampton.  There are no runners from Pond House today although David Noonan heads to Warwick for an outside ride.  Of our runners over the weekend, I thought that Aurillac ran well at Exeter on Sunday to finish fourth.  He was under pressure a long way out but kept going well and was beaten only five lengths.  After three pulled-up efforts and a string of problems, this was certainly a step back in the right direction.

Today there are just two meetings, both over the jumps at Exeter and Ayr.  David has two runners at Exeter, Drama King and Aurillac.  Drama King runs in the 1.10pm handicap hurdle over 2m2f.  He was a good fifth at Ascot in a novice hurdle just over a month ago.  He is a very fragile horse and has not had many runs in his life but he has ability.  He needs to improve a bit to win this race but there is no reason he can't with that recent run behind him and Tom Scu on board.  Aurillac runs in the novice chase at 3.25pm.  He pulled up on his stable debut at Newbury but that run was not without promise.  It will be good for him to get a clear round today from which he can build on.

      Daklondike runs at Haydock today

Today there are five meetings, jumps cards at Ascot, Haydock and Taunton plus flat cards at Lingfield and Wolverhampton.  David has runners at Haydock and Taunton.  Daklondike runs in the 3.15 Peter Marsh handicap chase at Haydock.  It looks a very competitive race even though the original favourite Valtor is now a non-runner.  Daklondike won at the track just before Christmas and although he is a little quirky he will appreciate the extra distance today and we are hopeful of a big run.  Tom Scu rides.

There are only three meetings taking place this afternoon after Musselburgh's jumps fixture was abandoned due to freezing temperatures.  That leaves us with a jumps cards from Chepstow as well as a couple of all-weather flat fixtures from Lingfield and Kempton.  There are no runners from Pond House today although stable jockeys Tom Scudamore and David Noonan have picked up outside rides at Chepstow.  Our next runners will be tomorrow where Daklondike is already declared for Haydock's Peter Marsh Chase, whilst we are likely to have runners at our local track, Taunton.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Wincanton, Market Rasen and Ludlow, whilst there is an all-weather flat card from Newcastle.  David has one runner today as Friday Night Light (pictured above) contests the 2m2½f handicap hurdle at Market Rasen at 1.35pm.  It is a tight little race despite there only being seven runners with the bookies going 9/2 co-favourites of three the field.  Friday Night Light is back down to a handy mark which is lower than when runner-up at Taunton and Ascot last term.  He would have claims on that basis, although he will need to improve on his most recent outings, although they did come in a much higher grade.  Tom Scudamore and David Noonan head to Wincanton where they have both picked up some outside rides.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Newbury and Plumpton as well as a couple of all-weather flat fixtures from Lingfield and Kempton.  I wonder if the race planners have a map of the country?  How close together are these courses?  Unfortunately, if you live up north it is a case of on your bike!  David has one runner at both jumps fixtures.  Percy Street contests the 1.10pm race at Newbury, a 2m½f handicap hurdle.  He has been running consistently well without winning but has been creeping up the weights as a result.  In a tight little race, he looks to have each-way prospects again under David Noonan.  Tom Scudamore is aboard Three Star General (pictured above) who goes in the 3m1f handicap hurdle at 2.35pm.  He will handle the ground and is another with an each-way chance.

It looks like being a quiet day today.  There are three meetings taking place today; a jumps card from Lingfield and two all-weather flat cards from Newcastle and Kempton.  There are no runners from Pond House today, whilst Tom Scudamore, David Noonan and our young amateur jockey Fergus Gillard have all picked up one outside ride each at Lingfield.  I don't think I will be using the 'one ride theory' today however.
