Entries & Recent Form

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from York, Salisbury and Newmarket as well as jumps cards from Perth and Fontwell.  Stable jockey Tom Scudamore was riding at Newton Abbot, Britain's most southerly track yesterday and today he is off to Perth which is Britain's most northerly track.  Talk about one extreme to the other!  Today he rides Legal History (pictured above) in the 2m handicap hurdle at 4.15pm.  Our four year old has been in great form, winning twice at Exeter and Ascot .  He carries top weight of 11-12 here but he has earned the weight and looks to have solid claims once again.

I was looking through the racecard at Fontwell and wondered why there is only £15,000 on offer for their seven race card.  Then I realised that it was a hunter chase card.  Even so, there are professional trainers represented on the card and I am not sure that is right.  You would have thought their facilities were considerably better than that of their amateur counterparts.  If they win, they pick up £1,247 and by the time you have taken all of the expenses out I don't suppose there would be much left.

I went to Newton Abbot yesterday afternoon and had a nice time.  I saw a lot of old faces and I mean old faces...then I realised that I am the same as them!  Even the bookmakers look old...where are all the young people?  Luke Harvey was there conducting interviews in his shorts...if I had legs like his I think I would keep them covered up!

The US PGA golf starts this morning and I will be having a little wager on Brooks Koepka at 11/1 and D Johnson at 12/1.  I couldn't have Woods or McIlroy on my mind at the moment, with Woods in particular a big drifter.

Portsmouth take on Sunderland this evening and at odds of 13/10, Portsmouth will do for me.

Snooker bosses are planning to clamp down on toilet cheats.  World snooker chairman Barry Hearn said there was concern that some players were using loo breaks as a "form of gamesmanship".  What are they going to do?  Knock on the toilet doors to make sure they are going to the loo?  Seems like a load of crap to me!

I have learned down the years that 3½ inches is enough to please most women...doesn't matter if it is Visa or Mastercard!  Keep smiling...
