There are just two meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Wincanton and Hereford.  David does not have any runners today but stable jockey Tom Scudamore heads to Wincanton where he has picked up a few outside rides, the best of which looks to be Flaming Charger in the 2.45pm race.

There are six meetings taking place this afternoon with four jumps cards from Newbury, Kelso, Stratford and Bangor On Dee, while there are a couple of all-weather flat fixtures from Lingfield and Wolverhampton.  David has one runner at Newbury as old favourite Shotavodka (pictured above) takes in the 3m2f handicap chase at 1.50pm.  He has gone well here a number of times in the past and should run his race once again - he is eleven years of age now and while the enthusiasm remains undiminished, it is not so easy to get his head in front these days.  This could well be his swansong so let's hope that he can put up a big performance - he has been a real asset to the yard down the years.  Tom Scudamore is in the saddle.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Newbury and Musselburgh while there are all-weather flat cards from Lingfield and Newcastle.  It looks like a quiet day for the horses and jockeys at Pond House.  I thought that Warthog ran creditably yesterday in the bumper at Chepstow, finishing runner-up to the four year old Dessinateur to whom he was trying to concede 7lbs.  It looks as though our former Irish point winner already needs a longer trip and he rates a nice prospect along with the winner.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Ludlow and Chepstow as well all-weather flat fixtures from Wolverhampton and Chelmsford.  David has one runner at each jump meeting this afternoon with ex-Irish point-to-point winner Warthog (pictured above) making his debut for the stable in the bumper at Chepstow at 5.25pm  The ground was yielding to soft when he ran out an impressive winner at Lingstown and with everything appearing to be in his favour, he looks to hold very good prospects under stable jockey Tom Scudamore.  It's Scu's only ride of the day and I reckon the 'one ride theory' could come to fruition today!  Meanwhile, Taws goes in the 3.40pm race at Ludlow - a 2m5f novices' hurdle.  She was second in the Queen Alexandra at Royal Ascot on the flat and was a good second to Finian's Oscar over hurdles at Exeter on her penultimate start - form that would give her a good chance here under Daryl Jacob.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Haydock and Warwick as well as all-weather flat fixtures from Newcastle and Kempton.  David has no runners today so stable jockey Tom Scudamore goes to Warwick for some outside rides and he looks to have a couple of small chances.  Of yesterday's runners The Two Amigos and Martabot finished fourth with the latter looking as though he would appreciate more of a test of stamina and possibly softer ground.  Carqalin ran his best race to date and maybe he would benefit from a slightly shorter trip.

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Exeter and Wetherby supported by an all-weather fixture from Southwell.  David has four runners at Exeter this afternoon; The Two Amigos, Martabot, Carqalin and Whitley Neill.  The Two Amigos runs in the 2.30pm race, a 2m7f novices' handicap hurdle - he put up his best performance to date last time when runner-up at Taunton and a similar level of form would give him every chance here despite a 4lbs higher mark.  Martabot was also second last time and he deserves a change of luck - he goes in the 2m2 1/2f handicap hurdle and is another with a chance under David Noonan who claims a handy 3lbs off his back.  Carqalin would have to improve on his form to date to figure while Whitley Neill contests the bumper and will have learned plenty for his racecourse debut.

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Taunton and Southwell as well as an all-weather flat card from Kempton.  We have one runner today as Lady Of Longstone (pictured above) goes in the three mile handicap hurdle at 4.50pm.  Regular rider Michael Heard is in the saddle and he claims a handy 5lbs off her back - our seven year old mare has won six times including the final of the mares' challenger series at Haydock last season.  She has dropped in the weights subsequently but would need to improve on her most recent outing when pulled up at Exeter.  She is a big price but a return to her best would see her go well.
