Entries & Recent Form

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Beverley, Brighton and Newbury as well as a jumps fixture from our local track Newton Abbot.  The best prize money is at Newton Abbot so they deserve a pat on the back for their efforts.  David has three runners at Newton Abbot this evening; Skinflint, Jacbequick and Delface.  Skinflint contests the 3m2f novices' handicap chase having shown good form in point-to-points for Gerry Supple.  He is ridden by regular pilot Bryan Carver who also claims a handy 7lbs off his back.  If he can convert his useful point form to rules then he would have every chance.  Jacbequick and Delface both contest the lady riders' handicap hurdle.  Jacbequick never runs a bad race and was a creditable second at Southwell on Sunday - he has a chance once again with Isabel Williams in the saddle, whilst Delface will be partnered by Tommy Eyston who rides out regularly at Pond House.  He has been in good form of late and should go well once again.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Chepstow, Windsor and Wolverhampton as well as a jumps card a Southwell.  There are no runners from Pond House today although stable jockey Tom Scudamore has picked up an outside ride at Southwell for his brother Michael and it looks to have a chance.  I thought that Jacbequick ran another solid race to finish runner-up at Southwell yesterday afternoon in what looked to be a competitive little contest.  He keeps running well without quite getting his head in front, although I don't suppose the handicapper will be dropping him anytime soon based on this effort.

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Hexham and Southwell as well as a flat fixture from Pontefract.  There is one runner from the stable today as Jacbequick (pictured above) contests the 1m7½f handicap hurdle at Southwell at 3.35pm.  He has been in good form, finishing runner-up behind a useful looking rival last time.  The good ground should suit well and with a good round of jumping he should be bang there again under Tom Scudamore.

There are seven meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Royal Ascot, Ayr, Haydock, Lingfield, Newmarket and Redcar as well as a jumps card from Perth.  It is a quiet day for the stable with no runners today and that comment applies to the stable jockeys too.  Meanwhile, over at Ascot it looks as though Godolphin trainer Charlie Appleby could be the man to follow at the Royal meeting.  Space Blues, Masar and Blue Point all look to have leading claims which augurs well for jockey James Doyle.

I thought that Van Gogh du Granit ran another respectable race last night reverting to hurdles at Ffos Las.  He looked as though he had every chance of winning at the last but was run out of it in the closing stages and finished third.  He is tough and clearly versatile so I am sure he will be winning again before too long.

There was a good day for the stable yesterday afternoon as two of our three runners won, whilst the other finished a close third.  Mrs Miggins (pictured above) won the 2m4f mares' handicap hurdle in good style, easily accounting for the odds-on favourite under a good front-running ride from Tom Scudamore.  She jumped really well and hopefully she can build on this and improve further.  Max do Brazil made it two out of two over fences with success in the staying novices' handicap chase and he also put in a good round of jumping given his inexperience over the larger obstacles.  Hot Ryan was a close third in the novices' handicap hurdle, looking the likeliest winner at the second last.  This was still a good run and she looks capable of winning something similar before too long.

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Royal Ascot, Hamilton Chelmsford and Ripon as well as a jumps card from Uttoxeter.  David has three runners this afternoon with Mrs Miggins, Max do Brazil and Hot Ryan.  Mrs Miggins contests the 2m4f handicap hurdle at 2.10pm and she has some decent placed form that would give her a chance here under Tom Scudamore.  Max do Brazil (pictured above) won last time out at Fakenham on good/firm ground but he should not be inconvenienced by the recent rain.  He is higher in the weights and this is a tougher race but he looks to have claims nonetheless.  Hot Ryan is our final runner in the 2m7½f novices' handicap hurdle at 5.45pm.  She is another with some decent place form and has each-way prospects.
