There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Plumpton and Fakenham as well as an all-weather flat fixture from Southwell.  David has two runners this afternoon at Plumpton; Shaama Grise and Tigger Two.  Shaama Grise (pictured above) makes her debut over fences today in the 2m1f novices' chase at 1.10pm.  She produced some excellent efforts last term including when last seen when runner-up at Sandown.  She gets a handy weight allowance and I don't think she will be inconvenienced by the trip so a big run is expected under Tom Scudamore.  Tigger Two makes his second start in the bumper at 3.40pm - he shaped with promise at Chepstow and while he needs to improve, the experience will have done him the world of good.

There was an excellent card from Fairyhouse yesterday afternoon and one of our old staff members Gordon Elliott enjoyed a good day with three Grade One winners - he must have learned plenty from his time with MCP!

I see that Ryan Moore won the Champions Cup in Japan on the dirt.  It was worth over £1 million to the winner so it was a good day's work.  With him returning over 12/1 it would seem that he was not that well-fancied, although it always helps to have the best flat jockey in the world.

My beloved West Ham were beaten 2-1 by Manchester City at the weekend and I have to say that it was a lot closer than I was expecting.  I thought City would have all the play but it didn't work out that way - as they say, "it's a funny old game!"  At least all my football bets came to fruition over the weekend - I hope a few of you were on.

I find it hard to believe that Paul Pogba is considering appealing against the red card he was given against Arsenal.  If you watch it back in slow motion it looks absolutely terrible.  I don't think I would appeal against it and if I were overseeing it, I think I would be inclined to increase the penalty.

Ricky Fowler wont the gold and was 8 under par after just 9 holes, shooting an incredible 28 for the outward 9.

Australia continue to look completely different class to our cricketers with our batsman seemingly unable to cope with the short balls from their pace attack.  I have an Australian relative who is really enjoying gloating at the moment.

I lost five pounds going to Weight Watchers last week - it was okay though, I found it again on the way home!
