Entries & Recent Form


    Three Star General runs at Ffos Las
It is a bank holiday weekend which means a busy racing weekend!  There are seven meetings today, flat cards at Haydock, Goodwood, York, Chester and Salisbury plus jumps cards at Cartmel and Ffos Las.  David has four runners at Ffos Las, Delface, Three Star General, Bambi Du Noyer and Tis What It Is.  Delface runs in the 6pm race, a 2 mile novice hurdle.  He won a 2 mile maiden hurdle at Wexford on soft/heavy ground.  They have had 14mm of rain at Ffos Las overnight so this will hep but the ground will still probably be quicker than when he won.  He works well at home and Tom Scu rides so hopefully he has a good chance.  Three Star General runs in the 7.30, a 2m6f novice hurdle.  He is a 70 rated flat performer who finished fourth in a decent novice hurdle at Ascot on his stable debut.  A similar level of form would give him a great chance but Positively Dylan looks the one to beat.  Don't forget he also won the Cheltenham Charity race in the meantime with Ben Moore on board.

     Work runs at Worcester Tonight
Today there are six meetings, flat cards at Goodwood, Haydock, Bath, Musselburgh and Pontefract plus a jumps cards at Worcester.  David runs Work in the 8.50pm, a 2m4f mares handicap hurdle with Tom Scu on board.  She ran well on the flat last week over 2 miles at Chepstow but her runs over hurdles have been disappointing so far.  She should be able to win off a mark of 91 so looks to have a good chance tonight.  Gabrial the Great finished third at Warwick yesterday and it was a good run but the winner won fairly easily and it was fairly tight between all the other runners.  His handicap mark of 134 looks quite high and is above his last winning mark so hopefully he may drop and pound or two and he can be even more competitive again next time.

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with flat action from Sandown, Goodwood, Catterick and Chelmsford City, while there is a jumps fixture from Warwick.  David has one runner today as Gabrial The Great (pictured above) contests the two mile handicap chase at Warwick at 4.30pm.  Our eight year old won from a 3lbs lower mark at Uttoxeter last season so is not without a chance although he will need to improve on his most recent efforts.  Stable jockey Tom Scudamore is in the saddle.

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with flat fixtures from Ayr, Yarmouth, Lingfield and Kempton while there is a jumps card from Southwell.  David has one runner this evening as old favourite Purple 'N Gold contests the 2m4 1/2 f handicap chase at Southwell at 6.20pm.  He wears a visor this evening and should like the prevailing good ground.  He has won from higher marks than this in the past but does have to shoulder the welter burden of 12-2.  Tom Scudamore is in the saddle.

This afternoon there are five meetings taking place with flat cards from Newcastle, Nottingham and Brighton while there are also jumps fixtures from Hexham and Huntingdon.  Stable jockey Tom Scudamore heads to Huntingdon where he rides The Two Amigos for the Pond House team in the 8.05pm race, a 3m1f handicap hurdle.  He was a good second at Taunton over three miles on good ground on his penultimate start and while he is 3lbs higher here, a reproduction of that effort would see him go close.

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with a flat card at Ripon as well as jumps cards from Market Rasen and Stratford. David has one runner today as Stay Out Of Court contests the 3m2 1/2f handicap hurdle at Stratford at 3.50pm.  He was a faller last time out when in with every chance and if he can repeat his previous efforts he should be in with every chance this afternoon.  Stable jockey Tom Scudamore is in the saddle.
