The stable enjoyed a good across the card double yesterday courtesy of Plumpton winner Gericault Roque and Leicester scorer Paricolor.  Gericault Roque stayed on in good style to land the 2m maiden hurdle, picking off the odds-on favourite on the run-in under a determined ride from Tom Scudamore.  He had shown promise in an Irish point-to-point and again on his rules debut in a Newton Abbot bumper so it was no surprise to see him go well.  He will surely benefit from further in time and rates another nice prospect for owners Bryan Drew and Professor Caroline Tisdall.

Meanwhile, over at Leicester Paricolor was winning for the fourth time this season under Fergus Gillard (and the third time at the track) when successful in the 2m4f selling hurdle.  He was given a good, sensible front-running ride from Fergus and it was clear early in the straight that he had most of his rivals in trouble.

Grangeclare Glory shaped with promise in the second division of the maiden hurdle at Plumpton, finishing a close fourth.  This was a big step forward on his previous run and hopefully he can build on this, whilst Major Robinson also finished fourth in the novices' hurdle at Leicester.  The ground at Leicester was very testing and he looks as though he will be better suited to a sounder surface.

David has one runner this afternoon as Umbrigado contests the 2m3½f novices' chase at Fontwell at 2.00pm.  He ran well on his seasonal debut when second in a valuable handicap hurdle at Haydock and again performed creditably when runner-up on his chasing debut at Uttoxeter last time.  He was the best of these over timber, conditions should suit and he looks sure to take plenty of beating today under Tom Scudamore.

Manchester City dug deep to beat a determined Brighton side 1-0 last night, although Spurs were held to a 1-1 draw by lowly Fulham.  There is more Premiership action to look forward to tonight with a mid-table battle between Arsenal and Crystal Palace.

Ronnie O'Sullivan dug deep to turn a 3-0 deficit around to beat Ding Junhui in the Masters snooker yesterday.  With Judd Trump out due to Covid and Neil Robertson and Mark Selby losing in surprise fashion it is fast looking like O'Sullivan's trophy to lose, although you never quite know what 'The Rocket' is going to do next.  He will play John Higgins, who has largely been out of form in the quarter finals.

What's the difference between ignorance and apathy?  I don't know and I don't care.
