Entries & Recent Form

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Musselburgh, Bath and Haydock and an all-weather flat card from Chelmsford City.  Unfortunately the quality does seem to pail into insignificance compared to the international action on offer overseas.  It is Arc Trials Day at Longchamp where they have five Group races including the Prix Neil, whilst over in Ireland the Curragh has four Group 1's and a Group 2 on their card.

Lady Reset (pictured above) produced another tremendously game performance to land the 1m2f handicap at Sandown yesterday afternoon under Laura Pearson.  Striking first in the straight after racing prominently, she stuck on in really well in the closing stages to see off all of her rivals to secure her third win on the flat over the summer.  She has also won over hurdles this season and continues in great form and will surely be kept on the go whilst the ground remains suitable.  I thought the Racing Post's comments were a little unjustified, suggesting she was 'not an obvious sort to go in again'...she has gone in four times already, what more does she need to do?!

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat fixtures from Sandown, Doncaster, Chester and Salisbury.  David has one runner today as Lady Reset (pictured above) contests the 1m2f handicap at Sandown at 4.05pm.  She has been in tremendous form this summer, producing a series of good efforts, whilst winning twice on the level and once over hurdles.  She again ran well at Salisbury last week and perhaps was a shade unlucky, being denied a clear run in the closing stages.  She is due to go up a pound in future handicaps, will enjoy the prevailing ground and looks to have solid each-way claims under Laura Pearson.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with the action all coming on the level.  The flat fixtures are at Chepstow, Doncaster and Epsom, whilst there is an all-weather flat card from Chelmsford City.  It is day two of the St Leger meeting at Doncaster and they have a pair of Group 2 races on their card.  The May Hill is a mile contest for two year old fillies' and looks to be at the mercy of Inspiral, who is already favourite for next year's 1,000 Guineas and Oaks.  It may be a little early to be thinking in terms of next season's Classics when we haven't even had all of this season's yet, but if she is to justify that sort of hype, she will need to win convincingly today.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps action from Uttoxeter, flat cards from Doncaster and Carlisle and an all-weather flat fixture from Wolverhampton.  David has one runner today as Ranco (pictured above) contests the 2m conditional jockeys' handicap hurdle at Uttoxeter at 2.00pm.  A winner on the level during the summer, he has shown some decent form over hurdles, including when runner-up to a progressive rival on his penultimate start.  He has to bounce back from a disappointing effort last time, but conditions should suit and Fergus Gillard take 3lbs off his back.  He is going to be a decent price so could be worth a little each-way.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with all of the action coming on the flat from Leicester, Goodwood, Windsor and Catterick.  The pick of the day should be the 0-105 staying handicap at Goodwood, but once again, is has only attracted five runners and the topweight is 9lbs below the ceiling for the race.

A foggy start to the morning in the west country.  There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Perth and Newton Abbot, a flat fixture from Brighton and an all-weather flat meeting from Newcastle.  The prevailing fast ground has obviously taken it's toll on the number of runners at any of the turf meetings with only one field in double figures.  There are no runners from the Pond House team today.  Indeed, our next runners will not come until Wednesday at the earliest, with declarations for those made this morning at 10am.
