There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with three all-weather fixtures on the flat from Chelmsford City, Lingfield and Southwell, whilst there are jumps fixtures from Carlisle and Wincanton.  David has three runners today at Wincanton; Teaser, Percy Street and Stubborn Logic.  Teaser (pictured above) contests the 1m7½f handicap hurdle at 3.55pm.  A winner over hurdles and fences for us, he was disappointing when last in action and has had a little break since.  He remains 4lbs higher than his last winning mark over timber and this is a competitive contest.  He will like the ground but is a big price and will need to improve to figure under Tom Scudamore.

We are doubly represented in the 2m5½f handicap hurdle at 5.05pm.  Percy Street has top weight to contend with but he has won at this venue from a 2lbs higher mark in the past and will love this quick surface.  Fergus Gillard is in the saddle and claims 7lbs off his back so it would be no surprise to see him outrun his odds.  Our other runner, Stubborn Logic is partnered by Tom Scudamore and he ran a promising first race back from an absence at Plumpton.  He won under similar conditions at Market Rasen last season and looks to have each-way claims.

Martinhal ran a satisfactory seasonal debut at Wetherby yesterday afternoon when finishing fourth in what could turn out to be a very useful race.  He just looked to lack the gears of the front three and it would be no surprise to see him getting further in time.  The winner of a bumper last season, he remains a very nice prospect for the future.

We will have just one runner in France this weekend when Ramses de Teillee contests the Grande Courses de Haies d'Auteuil on Saturday.  He sets off this afternoon but will not be joined by stablemate Poker Play who was entered at the Paris track on Sunday.

England were poor as they lost 1-0 to Denmark, knocking them back to third in their group of the UEFA Nations League.  Harry Maguire was sent off after just 31 minutes and four minutes later Denmark scored from a poor penalty decision.

Judd Trump managed to scrape through for the second match in succession in the English Open snooker, coming back from 3-1 down to defeat Yuan Sijun 4-3 and he doesn't look in the best of form as yet.  Ronnie O'Sullivan and Neil Robertson cruised through, although Mark Allen provided the biggest shock of the day being whitewashed 4-0 by Robbie Williams.  I didn't even know Robbie Williams could play snooker!

I was in a car showroom yesterday and the salesman asked, "What are you looking for?"  I said, "Because I can't afford to buy".
