It was an excellent jumping performance from the stable's Mamlook at Fakenham yesterday when he made a successful chasing debut under Tony McCoy.  He jumped like an old hand on ground which would not have suited him and I am sure there will be further improvement on decent going.  He is a fantastically versatile performer who landed the Chester Cup on the flat for us last year, as well landing a Grade 2 Hurdle at Ascot last jumps season and he looks sure to go onto better things over fences.

Trainer David Evans is quite vociferous in his views about the prize money he received for winning a 61-75 handicap on the flat at Wolverhampton yesterday with Urban Kode.  He rightly pointed out that after expenses, there is not a lot of money left over.  If the organisers could get away with dropping the prize money even more, I am sure they would.  The trainers need to get together and not enter or run their horses at these meetings - if there was no racing due to lack of runners then something would have to be done.  The longer the trainers keep competing for peanuts, the worse things are going to get - I agree with David Evans, it's a disgrace.

Talking of money, how on earth can Aston Villa bid £18 million for Darren Bent?  Not so long ago there was talk of Gerard Houllier's job being in question,  now they are letting him spend £18 million on one player!

As with humans, horse’s teeth are very important and require regular check ups. At Pond House we have an equine dentist visit on a regular basis and check each horse’s teeth at least once a year.

If a horse loses condition for no apparent reason, starts dropping half-chewed food, salivates excessively, has bumps or swellings on its face or jaws, it could be experiencing some tooth trouble. Other signs include, head throwing when being ridden, stiffness on one rein, tilting of the head to one side, rearing and unusual tongue carriage. Horses that are normally even-tempered may become generally ‘off’ if they have a problem in their mouths. This is why we keep a regular check on our horses’ teeth at Pond House because very often happy teeth can lead to a happy horse and they are more likely to perform better on the racecourse!

Below you will see a couple of pictures of horses that have recently arrived at the yard who were suffering from mouth ulcers, following treatment from our equine dentist they are fine again and looking a million dollars.
