Entries & Recent Form

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Haydock, Newcastle and Redcar, whilst there are jumps fixtures from Fakenham and Uttoxeter.  David has one runner today as Eden du Houx (pictured above) makes his debut over fences in the 2m6½f novices' limited handicap chase at Uttoxeter at 1.50pm.  A winning Irish point-to-pointer, he was a good bumper horse and did well over timber last season, winning at Chepstow before filling the frame in hot races at Ascot and Kempton (with the form of the latter working out particularly well).  It is a competitive contest, but he jumps well at home and looks to have a good chance under Tom Scudamore.

Stubborn Logic ran well at Wincanton yesterday afternoon to finish a close third in the 2m5½f handicap hurdle.  Taking it up before the penultimate flight, he looked as though he would hold on up the run-in but was just nabbed close home, being beaten only a neck and ½ length.  Percy Street finished sixth in the same race, travelling well for much of the way before his effort petered out after the last.

Teaser was far from disgraced on his first start back from a break in the 2m handicap hurdle, racing enthusiastically in front until weakening after the last.

There was good news yesterday that star flat stayer Stradivarius will be kept in training for another season.  The son of Sea The Stars is favourite for the Long Distance Cup at Ascot this weekend and will be bidding next season to join Yeats as the most successful horse in Ascot Gold Cup history by adding a fourth success in the race.  Racing needs it's stars and whilst Enable may have been retired, it is great to see him race on.

The big names made it through to the quarter-finals of the English Open snooker yesterday.  After a couple of shaky matches, Judd Trump looks like he has now hit form with a commanding 4-1 win over Gary Wilson.  John Higgins, Neil Robertson and Kyren Wilson completed routine victories, although Mark Selby continues to have to work hard to scrape through, this time beating Hossein Vafaei after trailing 3-1.
