There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Leicester and Catterick as well as all-weather flat fixtures from Southwell and Chelmsford.  There are no runners from the Pond House team today although stable jockey Tom Scudamore has picked up an outside ride at Leicester.  I thought that Legal History ran another promising race at Taunton yesterday afternoon, finishing fourth in the maiden hurdle behind a useful winner.  He has shown enough to suggest that he will be winning races over hurdles before too long.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Taunton and Doncaster as well as two all-weather flat cards from Lingfield and Kempton.  David has one runner this afternoon as Legal History contests the 2m maiden hurdle at 1.45pm.  He was a useful performer on the flat and made a satisfactory hurdling debut over hurdles when third behind a useful type at Newbury last time.  I think this quicker ground will help him and he looks to have a decent chance under Tom Scudamore.

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Ayr and Bangor as well as an all-weather flat fixture from Newcastle.  David has runners at both jumps meetings today.  Queen's Cave (pictured above) makes the long trip up to Scotland for the 2m4½f mares' novices' hurdle and our six year old looks like a most exciting prospect.  Winner of a point-to-point in Ireland, she won her bumper before finishing a close second in a decent Listed contest.  She jumps, stays and must have an excellent chance under Tom Scudamore.  Meanwhile, over at Bangor Know The Score contests the 2m7f novices' hurdle at 3.25pm.  Our six year old has won an Irish point-to-point, a bumper and a hurdle race and looks sure to appreciate this step up in trip.  It is a very competitive little race considering there are only six runners but he should go close.  Our final runner is Catch The Swallows in the bumper at 3.55pm - he finished runner-up in an Irish point and is another that looks to have sound prospects.  David Noonan rides both of our runners at Bangor.

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Chepstow and Musselburgh as well as an all-weather flat card from Wolverhampton.  David has three runners at Chepstow today; Druide Premier, Friday Night Light and Picture Painter.  Druide Premier contests the 2m maiden hurdle at 1.40pm and our six year old has some fair placed form in bumpers, although would need to improve on his most recent efforts over hurdles to figure here.  Friday Night Light and Picture Painter contest the competitive 2m3½f handicap hurdle at 3.50pm.  Tom Scudamore is aboard Friday Night Light (pictured above) and he carries 11-11.  This race is easier than some of those he has been contesting and has each-way chances, whilst Picture Painter has disappointed on his last few starts but is at least down to his last winning mark.  David Noonan takes the ride.

There are just two meetings taking place this afternoon with a jumps card at Plumpton and an all-weather flat fixture from Newcastle.  There are no runners from Pond House today, although stable jockey Tom Scudamore heads to Plumpton for just one ride.  The 'one ride' theory may be worth a go as his mount looks to have a decent chance in the 2.40pm race.  I must say that Plumpton have put up some good prize money today and should be congratulated for a job well done.  They have even managed to attract Barry Geraghty to Sussex which is something that does not happen all that often.

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps action from Sandown, Wincanton and Newcastle as well as all-weather flat fixtures from Lingfield and Kempton so if you are living in the London area you are in luck, you have the choice of three meetings!  I wonder how race planning go about their job sometimes.  Anyway, I digress...David has one runner this afternoon as Rathlin Rose contests the very valuable veterans' final at Sandown at 3pm.  With £100,000 in total prize money it has attracted a 17 runner field - that is over twice as many as any other race on the card and shows that there is a real market for these OAP's.  Rathlin Rose was fourth on his reappearance run and is a couple of pounds lower today.  He loves Sandown and has a good turn of foot.  The only thing I would say is that he may prefer the ground a bit more testing.  Nevertheless, a big run is expected under Tom Scudamore.  Tom has also picked up a few nice outside rides so he could be among the winners.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Lingfield (who need to pass an early morning inspection) and Wetherby whilst there are a couple of all-weather flat meetings from Kempton and Wolverhampton.  There are no runners from Pond House today although stable jockeys Tom Scudamore and David Noonan have picked up outside rides at Lingfield and Tom looks to have a decent chance in the 1.30pm race aboard Dalkadam.
