Entries & Recent Form

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with flat card from Sandown and Wolverhampton whilst there is a jumps fixture from Cartmel.  ITV continue to support the weekend fixtures with coverage of some of Sandown's card as well as a couple of race from Cartmel and Naas over in Ireland.  The Sandown card looks a good one with a couple of Group 3 contests on the menu including the Solario Stakes for two year olds.  It has thrown up some top-notchers in recent years with the likes of Masar, Too Darn Hot and Kingman all successful although I would be surprised if one as good as those were to emerge today.

There are four meetings taking place on these shores this afternoon with the action coming from York, Sandown and Chelmsford City on the flat, whilst there is a jumps card from Uttoxeter.  Chepstow were forced to abandon their fixture earlier in the week due to torrential rain leaving the track waterlogged.  David has one runner this afternoon with Dell' Arca contesting the 3m2f handicap chase at Uttoxeter at 4.25pm.  Our eleven year old has been a real star down the years contesting quality races throughout his career.  He is on his lowest mark to date and with conditions to suit, he looks sure to go well under Tom Scudamore.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from York, Salisbury and Wolverhampton, whilst there is a jumps fixture from Newton Abbot.  David has one runner today as Sexy Lot (pictured above) contests the 2m1f novices' hurdle at 4.20pm.  She had some decent form on the level in Germany and acquitted herself nicely on her hurdling debut at Exeter last season.  That was on heavy ground but there is no reason why she should not handle this less testing surface and she looks to have solid each-way claims under David Noonan.

It would seem that summer has returned with a vengeance!  We have had 15mm of rain at Pond House over the last 24 hours but at least it should be a bit drier today.  Windsor have been forced to abandon today's fixture after heavy overnight rain left the ground waterlogged and it is a similar situation at Chepstow where officials have already been forced to abandon Sunday's meeting.  That leaves us with flat action from York and Chester today and unsurprisingly there are no runners from the Pond House team.

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from York and Bath, whilst there is a jumps fixture at Stratford.  David has two runners today as Jasmin des Bordes and Queen Adelaide go at Stratford.  Jasmin des Bordes contests the 3m2½f handicap hurdle at 3.35pm and he took a big step back in the right direction when a staying-on third at Newton Abbot last time.  He is 1lb lower this afternoon and the rain should certainly help his cause.  Looks to have solid prospects under stable jockey Tom Scudamore.

The stable has one runner this afternoon as Percy Street (pictured above) contests the 2m3f handicap hurdle at Fontwell at 2.45pm.  He ran his best race for some time at Newton Abbot on his last appearance, bustling up a very progressive winner.  He is 2lbs higher this afternoon but is still 1lb lower than his last winning mark.  A repeat of his latest effort would give him every chance here and he looks to have sound claims under Tom Scudamore.

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Catterick and Windsor supported by a jumps fixture from Uttoxeter.  David has three runners today at Uttoxeter; Le Grand Rocher, I'lletyougonow and Story Of Friends.  Le Grand Rocher makes his debut for the stable in the 2m4f novices' hurdle at 1.35pm.  He is a lovely type and showed signs of ability last term, particularly behind Goshen at Fontwell in November.  He will be aided by the overnight rain at the track and looks to have solid claims under Tom Scudamore.
