Entries & Recent Form

After a cracking day of racing yesterday featuring Trials Day at Cheltenham, it is very much back down to earth with a bang today.  There are just two meetings taking place today with jumps cards from Sedgefield and Fontwell.  There are no runners from the Pond House team today and stable jockeys Tom Scudamore and David Noonan also have time for a bit of r&r as they do not have any booked mounts.

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with jump racing from Cheltenham, Doncaster and Uttoxeter as well as a couple of all-weather flat cards from Lingfield and Kempton.  There will be a busy day ahead for the team as David has runners at all three of the National Hunt fixtures.  Night Edition and Warthog(pictured above) are in action at Cheltenham, whilst Golden Jeffrey and Ramses de Teillee run at Doncaster and Main Fact at Uttoxeter.

There are four meetings this afternoon with jumps action from Doncaster and Huntingdon, whilst there are a couple of all-weather flat cards from Lingfield and Wolverhampton.  David runs Taj Badalandabad, Eur Gone West and Stream Lady at Huntingdon, whilst Ghost Serge runs at Wolverhampton.  Taj Badalandabad (pictured above) and Eur Gone West contest the Pertemps handicap hurdle qualifier at 2.35pm and Taj Badalandabad won this contest in 2016 and 2018.  He has had his share of problems but shaped better than his finishing position would suggest last time and is now 1lb lower than when winning this 2 years ago.  He clearly likes it here and would have a good chance under Tom Scudamore.  Eur Gone West would have to improve on his most recent efforts but won twice last term in good style.  The ground may just a little softer than ideal.  David Noonan rides.

There was a good winner for the stable yesterday when Main Fact ran out a cosy winner of the 2m handicap hurdle at Warwick yesterday.  He travelled nicely throughout and stayed on nicely after the last when Tom Scudamore asked him to quicken and he readily drew clear.  The form of his previous start at Exeter has worked out particularly well with the first three home all winning subsequently.  Such was the manner of victory, it would be no surprise to see him turned out again quickly under a penalty.  It was great to get a winner on the board for owners the Munrowd's partnership who have been very patient.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Warwick and Catterick and a couple of all-weather flat cards from Lingfield and Kempton.  David has two runners today; I'lletyougonow and Main Fact.  I'lletyougonow (pictured above) makes her debut for the stable in the 2m juvenile hurdle at Warwick at 1.00pm.  This is also her first start over hurdles but she showed a decent level of ability on the flat at distances of around a mile.  This looks like a decent contest with several of her rivals already showing a good level of form.  She is entitled to learn plenty for the experience but has schooled well at home.  Tom Scudamore is in the saddle.  Our other runner is Main Fact who contests the 2m handicap hurdle at 4.15pm.  He produced a very good effort last time after a 600 day absence to finish a very close third at Exeter.  He is 6lbs higher this afternoon, which obviously makes life harder, but that form has been well advertised with the first two home winning again since.  Good chance under Tom Scudamore.

It is another cold start to the day with a white frost on the ground.  Unsurprisingly there are early morning inspections at both jumps meetings; Exeter and Leicester.  There are no such problems at Newcastle's all-weather flat fixture where they host a seven race card.  Should Exeter get the go ahead David will have four runners - Flou Artsistique, Sexy Lot, Ekayburg and Great Tempo.

Ghost Serge Winner at Wolverhampton

Ghost Serge emerged out of the thick fog at Wolverhampton to win the 4.10pm race yesterday under Finley Marsh over 1m4f.  Ghost Serge is a bit of a character to say the least but a very talented one on his day!  We were particularly delighted for his owners Keith and Lynne Webb as we have had a few issues since he arrived but a win makes it all worthwhile.  They have been great supporters of Pond House for many years so it is fantastic he won in their colours.  He was a little reluctant going to the start but he did nothing wrong in the race.  Drawn widest of all Finley Marsh rousted him away from the stalls and took up a good position behind the leader.  As that one began to tire he took over the running and kept galloping all the way to the line on his first try at the trip under a fine ride from Finley Marsh.
