     Know the Score - Winner at Hexham

It was great to get a winner at Hexham yesterday with Know the Score.  It certainly made the long journey worthwhile and he looked to win with a bit in hand.  He is a lovely prospect going forward especially when stamina comes into play later down the line. He has a bright future.  Jacbequick ran another good race to finish second at Leicester and the horses remain in good form.

        Jacbequick runs at Leicester

Today there are four meetings and David has runners at three of them!  There are jumps cards at Hexham and Leicester while there are flat cards at Lingfield and Kempton.  David runs Know the Score in the first race up at Hexham, a 2m4f maiden hurdle.  He is an Irish point to point winner and a Towcester bumper winner on soft ground.  He's Tom Scu' only ride of the day and he will go off a short priced favourite and should be a good thing.  He was third at Chepstow on his hurdling debut and the form of that race looks very good, the fourth has come out and won since and fingers crossed we can do the same this afternoon.

                    Eur Gone West  
  Carries the Sunflower Colours at Uttoxeter

Today there are three meetings, jumps cards at Fontwell and Uttoxeter plus a flat card at Southwell.  David has two runners at Uttoxeter.  Eur Gone West runs in the 2 mile maiden hurdle at 2.00pm.  He finished close up in an Irish Point to Point and he also ran well on his hurdling debut at this track back in October to finish fourth.  Tom Scu rides and he looks to have a good chance.  Three Star General runs in the 2m7f handicap hurdle at 2.30pm.  He ran is best race for a while at Exeter last time to finish third over today's trip.  Blinkers replace cheek pieces and Tom Scu rides.  He looks to have a good each way chance.

Today we have three meetings, jumps cards at Lingfield and Musselburgh plus a flat card at Wolverhampton.  David runs Max Do Brazil in the 3.00pm at Lingfield, a 2m3f handicap hurdle.  Although he has been a bit disappointing his wins in France came on soft/heavy going and so he shouldn't mind conditions this afternoon.  He is working well at home and fingers crossed he can show what he is capable of at home.

There are just two meetings today, both over the sticks at Huntingdon and Kelso but David does not have any runners.  Tom Scu has some rides up at Kelso while David Noonan has some at Huntingdon.  The big race at Kelso is the Scottish Borders National.  There are 16 runners and it has attracted some nice horses with some good prize money on offer.  Meanwhile over in Sha Tin I see that Oisin Murphy, Neil Callan and Silvestre De Sousa are over there.  If you ever get a chance to go racing in Hong Kong I highly recommend it.  Racing is very popular over there, and the atmosphere is fantastic, it is more like a football crowd.

       Warthog - Winner at Sandown

Today we have five meetings, jumps cards at Aintree, Sandown, Chepstow and Wetherby plus a flat card at Wolverhampton.  David has runners at three of the meetings.  Vieux Lion Rouge runs in the Becher chase at Aintree at 1.30pm.  This is over the Grand National Fences and is a race he won two years ago.  He has in fact won 11 times in his career and loves plenty of cut in the ground which he will have today.  His last run was in the Grand National in April where he finished ninth.  He returns from his break fresh and well and a big run is expected with Tom Scu in the saddle.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Sandown, Exeter and Sedgefield as well as an all-weather flat card from Kempton.  We have had loads of rain in the west country so if you are thinking of going to the races make sure you pack your welly boots.  I will be making a rare visit today, I don't go as often as I used to so if you see me, come over and say hello (unless I owe you money!).  David has runners at Sandown and Exeter today.  Warthog makes his chasing debut in the 2m4f handicap chase at 1.55pm at Sandown.  He was a winner of an Irish point-to-point and had some decent placed form over hurdles, although he has always looked like a chaser in the making.  David Noonan is in the saddle and he looks to have place claims.  Our other runner at Sandown is Malangen who contests the 2m handicap hurdle at 3.30pm - he has run some sound races in defeat and would have a chance on the best of his form, although this will be the softest surface he will have encountered.
