Entries & Recent Form

There is quite the mixed bag this afternoon with four meetings taking place.  We have flat cards from Ayr and Newbury, an all-weather flat fixture from Kempton and a jumps meeting from Newton Abbot.  The pick of the action comes courtesy of a couple of Listed contests at Ayr and another at Newbury today.  Sadly for Newton Abbot, the Devon track seems to have suffered at the hands of the latest dry spell with the ground, which is good/firm in places has only drawn several small fields.

The run of winners this week ended at three yesterday, I should have quit whilst we were ahead!  Still, in for a penny, in for a pound and today I'm siding with Albasheer in the Dubai Duty Free Stakes at 3.30pm.  He is entitled to come on for his recent reappearance in France and the return to 7f should also help.  At odds of around 6/1, he looks to have sound each-way claims under Dane O'Neill.

There was a good night for West Ham as they beat Dinamo Zagreb 2-0 away from home in their opening Europa League match.  The Hammers, who are currently flying high in the Premiership, maintained their good start to the season with an excellent performance.  Meanwhile, as predicted, things were not quite as straight forward for Leicester as they drew 2-2 with Napoli.

In Formula One, Aston Martin have signed four-times world champion Sebastian Vettel for another season next year.  The driver line-up's have taken shape very quickly this season, with all bar three seats now decided (those at backmarkers Alfa Romeo and Haas).

Washington managed to get the better of the New York Giants in a close game in the NFL last night.  Meanwhile, I can sympathise with BBC pundit and former Giants player, Osi Umenyiora, who says he is 'sick' of Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers.  As a fan of the Vikings, who have to face one of the finest ever quarterbacks twice a year, I don't mind telling you, I'm sick of him too!

I witnessed an attempted murder earlier.  Unfortunately only one crow showed up!
