        Dromineer Winner at Taunton

It was great to win the last race at Taunton yesterday with newcomer Dromineer in the bumper under David Noonan.  Our six year old always looked like the winner and he was backed into 6/5 favourite.  He won by 11 lengths and it was a good performance.  It was particularly brilliant for owners William Frewen and MCP who have been very patient.  He has been a little difficult to train as you may have realised with him only making his debut as a six year old.  He has always shown ability at home and it was great everyone's patience has been rewarded.  William has been a great supporter of Pond House for many years and it was nice to get these colours formerly sported by the legendary Lough Derg back in the winners enclosure.

         Eur Gone West runs at Perth

Today there are five meetings, jumps cards at Perth, Fontwell, Taunton and Southwell plus a flat card at Epsom.  It looks another well balanced race day!!  David has three runners, one at Perth and two at Taunton this evening.  Eur Gone West runs in the 3.00pm race, a 3 mile listed National Hunt novices hurdle race.  Our six year old is in good form and has won his last two races impressively, the last time over three miles at Taunton on good ground.  There are only six runners but it is a competitive race as you would expect for a £30,000 added prize money.  This is tougher than his last two races but he is on the upgrade and it will be interesting to see how he gets on.  Tom Scudamore has gone up to Perth and rides.  I remember going to Perth many years ago with six runners and five of them won!  Perth is a lovely course and I recommend a visit as they look after you really well.

      Stream Lady Winner at Plumpton

Today we have five meetings, jumps cards at Ludlow and Sedgefield plus flat cards at Yarmouth, Lingfield and Wolverhampton.  David does not have any runners today but Tom Scu goes to Ludlow for one ride.  That one ride today could be a winner as Master Burbridge looks to have a good chance in the 3.25pm race.  It was a good Easter Monday for our two runners as Stream Lady won at Plumpton in good style and Picture Painter was a very close second.  The first time blinkers seemed to do the trick and she beat the well backed favourite The Tin Miner by 3.5 lengths.  The step up in trip also seemed to help and now she has got her head in front hopefully she can go on and win again.  At Plumpton they had best turned out awards in every race including the last which was a walkover, I have never heard of that before!

          Malangen - Hat-trick of Wins

It is a busy day with six meetings, four jumps cards at Plumpton, Fakenham, Chepstow and Huntingdon plus two flat cards at Redcar and Wolverhampton.  There is also the big meeting at Fairyhouse in Ireland with the Irish Grand National the feature on the card.  David has two runners today, one at Chepstow and one at Plumpton.  Picture Painter runs in the 2.00pm at Chepstow with David Noonan on board.  He has been rather disappointing of late but he is a winner on the flat and over hurdles and hopefully the application of a visor may help.  Stream Lady runs in the 4.45pm at Plumpton, a 3 mile handicap hurdle.  She has blinkers on for the first time and tackles 3 miles for the first time under rules.  She has won an Irish point to point so should stay.  Tom Scu rides and she needs to improve a bit on recent form to win this.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Plumpton, Ffos Las and Market Rasen as well as a flat card from Southwell.  David has a runner at Plumpton and Ffos Las.  Legal History (pictured above) contests the £50,000 Sussex Champion Hurdle at Plumpton over two miles at 3.25pm and our four year old is improving at a rate of knots.  He has won his last two races at Ascot and Exeter in very good style and will love this ground.  With only 10-2 on his back he must have a very good chance of completing the hat-trick under Tom Scudamore.  Over at Ffos Las old favourite Dell' Arca runs in the 3m4f handicap chase at 4.20pm.  He rarely runs a bad race but consequently is saddled with top weight here.  David Noonan has won on him before and does the steering today.

It is a busy day ahead with no less than seven meetings taking place this afternoon.  The action comes from Musselburgh, Kempton, Nottingham and Brighton on the flat, whilst there is jumps action from Haydock, Newton Abbot and Carlisle.  David has three runners at Haydock and one at Newton Abbot.  It is Challenger Finals day at Haydock so the racing is very competitive and we have Miss Tynte, Teaser and Dauphine Ereine in action.  Over at our local track Newton Abbot our representative is Malangen (pictured above).

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with all the action coming on the level.  David does have one runner today as Jacbequick(pictured above) runs in the 1m3½f flat handicap at Bath at 4.35pm.  He had a great season on the flat last term, winning on three occasions and he looks sure to run a decent race once again.  He will like the ground, has won from this mark in the past and jockey Finley Marsh (who takes 3lbs off his back) has won on his as well.  He is likely to be around the 10/1 mark and has each-way claims.
