Entries & Recent Form

The good news is that racing is all set to resume on Wednesday, tomorrow!!  That means we will have jumping action at Plumpton and Musselburgh plus flat cards at Kempton and Southwell.  There will be a closely controlled return to action with increased bio security and restrictions.  More news on what will actually happen will be released to trainers throughout the morning so keep an eye out for the news.  The other good news is that they are re=scheduling a few of the big races lost from last weekend.  The Betfair hurdle and Denman Chase that were lost from Newbury will now be run at Ascot this Saturday.  Again there will be more news throughout the day as to whether entries stand or trainers will have to make new ones.

While we wait for the British action to return there are two race meetings in France today at Chantilly and Toulouse.  Both meetings will be shown on Sky racing. Looking at the Chantilly card I see that there are three claimers this afternoon so I shall have to have a closer look at those!  The other good news is that Ireland have lifted their suspension on British runners being allowed to race over there as well.

I see that Simon Crisford now has to exercise his string in isolation in the afternoons if he wishes to use the Newmarket Heath facilities which makes common sense.

I read that Kempton racecourse has been fined £3,500 after trainer John Scargill found feed pellets from the previous meeting on the floor of a stable his runner was allocated on 15th January.  It turned out that the stable had not  been used for a week and that his horse was trying to eat food that had been lying on the floor for all that time which isn't good either.

Manchester United play Paris St-Germain tonight in the Champions League.  United are 7/5 to win and I think tonight we will really see how much United have improved under their new manager.

I know you might find this hard to believe but in the cricket England could win the third test against the West Indies.  Joe Root scored his 16th test century and we have a lead of 448.

I see in the darts that Phil Taylor has told bad boy Gerwyn Price not to pay his £21,500 fine.  Taylor says that all players are winding each other up.  Gary Anderson also agreed to a point " I'd object and wouldn't pay".  You can say those things when you are retired Phil!!

What is an Ig?  A snow house without a loo!!  Have a nice day.
