Picture Painter finished 3rd at Wolverhampton

With Fakenham having already been abandoned this morning it does not look too good for the other jumps card at Wincanton but we shall keep our fingers crossed.  Temperatures are still -5 here at Pond House this morning at 7.30am so things will need to warm up a bit!  David does not have any runners today.  There are two all-weather meetings today at Southwell and Newcastle to keep us going anyway.  Southwell have managed to get away with just £39,000 of prize money for there entire card.  Picture Painter ran a good race at Wolverhampton yesterday to finish a close third.  He carried top weight and was given a good ride by Finley Marsh and he should be capable of winning a race or two on this evidence.

Today there were due to be four meetings but unfortunately Plumpton has been abandoned as has Leicester while the all-weather fixture at Lingfield is also subject to an inspection (it does now go ahead).  David was due to have one runner at Plumpton, Whitley Neill but these abandonment's means there is no jumping action across the country today.  We do still have one runner at Wolverhampton this evening, Picture Painter runs in the flat handicap over 1m4f with Finley Marsh on board.  He has been rather disappointing over hurdles for the stable but he goes well at home so fingers crossed he will enjoy running on the flat tonight.  The weather is very frosty down in the West country also and if you are out and about on the roads drive carefully.

Today there are only two meetings taking place with Lingfield having to abandon their jumps fixture after temperatures dropped to -6ºc overnight.  That leaves us with a jumps fixture from Newcastle and an all-weather flat card from Wolverhampton.  There are no runners from the stable today and it looks as though Tom Scudamore and David Noonan will be taking the day off now that Lingfield is cancelled.

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Ludlow and Kempton as well as an all-weather flat card from Wolverhampton.  The Pond House team has runners at both jumps fixtures today.  Extra Mag and Martabot run at Kempton, whilst Mrs Miggins and Three Star General run at Ludlow.  Extra Mag (pictured above) has looked very promising in two starts over hurdles since arriving at Pond House - he has a penalty to carry for his Exeter success in the novices' hurdle at 1.00pm but still looks to have very good claims under Tom Scudamore.  Martabot has to shoulder top-weight of 12-0 in the 2m5f handicap hurdle at 3.10pm but he has shown enough on occasions to suggest that he can land a race of this nature and blinkers are employed today.

There are just two meetings taking place this afternoon, but at least they are both over the jumps with the action coming from Fontwell and Sedgefield.  David Noonan has picked up three outside rides at Fontwell, whilst it looks as though Tom Scu has decided to take the day off.  There are big fields over in Ireland where there is a good looking card at Naas which features a couple of Grade 3 contests.

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Cheltenham, Doncaster and Uttoxeter as well as all-weather flat cards from Lingfield and Chelmsford.  David has one runner today; Delface (pictured above) who contests the opening conditional jockeys' handicap hurdle at Uttoxeter at 1.05pm.  Our six year old is in good form and was a winner over course and distance last time.  He is 6lbs higher today which seems reasonable enough and he would appear to have leading claims despite joint top-weight of 12-0.  Kieron Edgar takes the ride.

There is some better news...with temperatures rising there are no inspections planned ahead of today's fixtures so hopefully all of the action will take place.  There are four meetings planned with jumps cards from Huntingdon and Doncaster as well as all-weather flat cards from Lingfield and Newcastle.  Stable jockeys Tom Scudamore and David Noonan have both picked up outside rides at Huntingdon and a couple of them look to have chances.
