Entries & Recent Form

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with a flat fixture from Ayr, an all-weather flat card from Chelmsford City and jumps cards from Exeter and Worcester.  David has three runners today as Nabvutika, Paricolor and Major Robinson all run at Exeter.  The first of them is Nabvutika, who runs in the 2m½f mares' maiden hurdle at 1.55pm.  She had some fair form on the flat and certainly won't mind the prevailing ground.  She has schooled nicely at home and would have a small each-way chance with Fergus Gillard taking 3lbs off her back.

Paricolor (pictured above) contests the 2m3f handicap chase at 2.30pm.  A winner five times last season over hurdles, and already on his first start this term, he switches back to the larger obstacles today.  He remains 7lbs above his last winning mark over timber, so this will be tougher.  He has schooled well over fences at home and has an each-way chance.  Fergus Gillard, who has been aboard for all his wins in this country, rides again and claims 3lbs.

Our final runner is Major Robinson (pictured below), who goes in the 2m2½f conditional jockeys' handicap hurdle at 4.50pm.  A winner of an Irish bumper, he has some decent form to his name over hurdles, notably when runner-up to a well-treated rival on good ground at Wetherby three starts back.  If he can put his best foot forward, he would not be without a chance.  Philip Armson takes the ride and claims a handy 6lbs off his back.

Tensions were rising at the final press conference before Saturday night's fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.  The media session developed into a shouting match between the two participants with Fury throwing a volley of insults at his opponent.  Let's hope he can throw as many punches on the night.  Such was the animosity that the stare down had to be abandoned.  I am sure much of this is just showbusiness - as I said earlier in the week, they have to sell it to the audience.

I was really pleased when I finished my jigsaw puzzle yesterday...it only took me six months.  The box said it would take four to five years!
