What a good weekend for the stable runners with the success of Make Me A Believer (pictured above) in the bumper at Chepstow on Saturday.  It looked like a good race on paper and I am sure it will be throwing up plenty of winners.  I particularly liked the way he fought off a string of challengers in the straight to win under David Noonan.  He looks like another smart recruit and I cannot wait to see him tackle hurdles.  On Sunday Rathlin Rose finished a very creditable sixth in the Velka Pardubicka, one of the strangest races anywhere on the calendar.  I thought that he was going to win at the penultimate fence, but the 4m2½f trip proved too much for him in the closing stages.  He still picked up almost £7,000 for his efforts.

Hopefully there will be four meetings taking place this afternoon so long as Windsor pass their precautionary inspection.  If so, they will be joined by fixtures from Musselburgh, Yarmouth and Wolverhampton.

Looking a little further ahead I understand that Ascot are saying that the track is the softest and wettest they have known it according to their clerk of the course, Chris Stickels.  It looks as though they are going to switch to the inner track for the first time for their upcoming fixture.  Let's hope they don't get too much more rain as it is always a good meeting.  There has been plenty of money for The Revenant for Saturday's Queen Elizabeth II Stakes - he will love the going.

Ronnie O'Sullivan is due to face Jamie O'Neill in the first round of the English Open at Crawley.  Let's hope they have sorted out the odour before the Rocket's appearance.  He lambasted the venue last year for "stinking of urine".  Hopefully there will be no reoccurrence otherwise Ronnie is going to be p****d off! 

Former Chelsea and Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech was named man of the match in his first ice hockey match.  He played for Guildford Flames against the Swindon Wildcats, starring in the shootout win.  He has signed up for the remainder of the season.  I wonder how his wages compare to those from his footballing days?

Britain's Heather Watson was beaten in the final of the Tianjin Open.  It is a shame as it was her first final in years.  Meanwhile, 15 year old American Coco Gauff won her first WTA tournament in Linz and looks a superstar in the making.  Many of you will remember her run to the fourth round of Wimbledon back in the summer.  I am sure she will be going much further in future.
