Today there are two meetings at Kelso and Uttoxeter but don't forget there is also just a small meeting in Paris!  All eye's will be on Enable in the hope that she can win her third Arc.  She is following exactly the same pre-race routine as she has the past two years and spent the night in Chantilly last night.  They tell me there were more spectators than normal watching her final piece of work on Warren Hill gallops before she left for France.  All sports need stars and Enable is certainly one of those.  I shall be tuning into watch Longchamp this afternoon and I really hope she can land the hat-trick, there will be some atmosphere and it would be great for racing.

Today we have five meetings, flat cards at Ascot, Newmarket, Redcar and Wolverhampton plus a jumps card at Fontwell.  David does not have any runners today.  The big race is the Sun Chariot stakes, a Group 1 at Ascot at 3.25pm.  Aidan O'Brien has two runners and Ryan Moore is on board Hermosa so that is the one for me.  It is also of course Arc weekend and there is racing at Longchamp.  The English trainers have four favourites but I am not sure I will be backing any of them, lets hope I am wrong.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Ascot and Southwell as well as two jump fixtures from Fontwell and Hexham.  It looks like a quiet day for David Noonan (pictured above), perhaps he is off celebrating his birthday?  David is 24 years old today so let's hope that he has a great day.  Wouldn't I love to be 24 again?!

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Lingfield, Wolverhampton and Chelmsford City as well as a jumps fixture from Warwick.  Warwick have done a good job securing the most prize money on offer today, so well done to them.  David Noonan has picked up an outside ride at Warwick today, although I won't be testing the 'one ride' theory today as his mount seems to have problems completing the course.

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Nottingham, Kempton and Newcastle as well as jumps cards from Huntingdon and Bangor.  There are no runners from Pond House today, although David Noonan has picked up three outside rides at Huntingdon.  It looks to me like he might struggle to ride a winner, I hope I am wrong.  They have clearly missed all of the rain as the official going is being described as good, unlike Nottingham who have had to survive an early morning inspection.  They have fared better than Salisbury however as they have already had to abandon their fixture scheduled for tomorrow as following lots of rain, the course is unfit for racing.  There was plenty of rain around Pond House again yesterday, although there were a few glimpses of sunshine as captured by David's assistant Ali Galliers-Pratt with another great photograph...I taught her all she knows (obviously!).

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Ayr and Kempton as well as jumps fixtures from Sedgefield and Southwell.  There are no runners from Pond House today.  Despite more rain overnight there are no problems with the meetings going ahead, although it is going to be pretty testing.  Ayr are describing their going as heavy in places so make sure if you are betting that your selection will go on the ground.

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Bath, Hamilton and Wolverhampton.  Following the heavy downpours over the weekend it is hardly surprising that Newton Abbot have had to abandon their jumps fixture today.  At least we have a flat runner to keep us entertained today with Ekayburg a runner on the flat at Bath - he contests the 1m2f handicap at 3.05pm.  Our five year old was the winner of a couple of bumpers in France, including a Grade 2 contest and ran a good race on his last flat start at Leicester when runner-up back in June.  Finley Marsh, who was on board that day, is in the saddle again and he claims a useful 3lbs off his back and he looks to have a decent chance.
