Entries & Recent Form

There are five meetings taking place this morning with jumps cards from Musselburgh and Chepstow supported by flat action from Nottingham, Kempton and Wolverhampton.  There are three runners from Pond House today; Jasmin des Bordes, Into The Woods and Kepagge (pictured above).  Jasmin des Bordes contests the 2m7½f handicap hurdle at 2.40pm.  A former Irish point-to-pointer, he has some solid pieces of placed form to his name (including at this course) and will certainly appreciate a bit of cut underfoot.  He made a decent seasonal reappearance at Worcester (the second has franked the form since) and looks as though this trip should suit.  He should go well under Tom Scudamore.

Into The Woods and Kepagge both run in the concluding bumper at 4.15pm.  Our pair have both shown decent form in Irish point-to-points with Into The Woods finishing runner-up on his last couple of starts, whilst Kepagge was still in with every chance when taking a last fence fall.  David Noonan rides Into The Woods and Tom Scudamore takes the mount aboard Kepagge.  There are plenty of promising types in the line-up as well as some unknown quantities so it is hard to know what to expect, although both of ours go nicely at home.

Queen Adelaide fared best of our runners at Exeter yesterday when finishing a creditable fourth in the 2m2½f handicap hurdle at Exeter on her first start since March.  She is entitled to improve for the run and can certainly be winning something similar before long.

There was bad news for big spending owner Darren Yates yesterday when the most expensive jumps horse to go through a public auction, Interconnected was ruled out for the season by Dan Skelton due to a leg injury.  The horse was originally sent to Phil Kirby but moved before he could run him owing to the owner's superstition.  I wonder if he has broken any mirrors lately?

What a cracking finish to Chelsea's Champions League match against Ajax last night with the final score 4-4.  There is more European action to look forward to tonight with Spurs away to Red Star Belgrade on BT Sport tonight at 8pm.  Manchester City are away to Atalanta and Arsenal travel to Vitoria Guimaraes so it could be a good night for the English sides abroad.
