There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with a jumps card from Sedgefield, flat fixtures from Ffos Las, Carlisle and Lingfield and an all-weather fixture from Chelmsford.  The pick of the action today comes from Lingfield where they have a card full of 0-90 handicaps.  It is for that strange racing league thing...whilst the powers that be should be applauded for trying something new, I'm afraid I still fail to see how racing could ever be a team sport.  Having said that, the 20/20 cricket has brought a new generation of enthusiasts to their sport, so what is the harm in trying something new?

There are no runners from the Pond House team today.

Talking of cricket, David is off to the Taunton ground tonight for Somerset versus Lancashire's quarter final match in the T20 Vitality Blast.  I reckon there could be a few sore heads in the morning, especially if Somerset justify favouritism!

England had a day to remember in the test match against India at Headingley.  After bowling the tourists out for just 78 runs owing to some great bowling, notably from the ageless Jimmy Anderson, England finished the day on 125-0 a lead of 43 runs with all ten wickets in hand.  Hopefully they can go on to build a commanding lead on day two.

There were some big wins in the Carabao Cup football last night with Southampton hammering Newport County 8-0 away from home, whilst Arsenal finally managed to win a game by putting six past West Brom.  This will have done their confidence no harm whatsoever.

I see that the US Open, the final Grand Slam of the tennis season, is set to take place without a host of the game's top players.  Defending champion Dominic Thiem, Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal are all out of the tournament, whilst in the women's game the Williams sisters and fifth seed, Sofia Kenin have all withdrawn.

Two nuns driving at night in Transylvania. Suddenly a vampire jumps out in front of the car, making them stop the car. The driving nun, Sister Mary, cries out to her companion, "Quick, Sister Margaret, show him your cross!" Sister Margaret rolls down the window, leans out and yells to the vampire, "Get out of the way, you idiot!"
