***Update***
Kalifourchon non-runner, 3.50pm Worcester

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with flat action from Carlisle, Salisbury, Bath and Kempton as well as a jumps card from Worcester.  David has two runners at Worcester this afternoon; Tis What It Is who contests the bumper for conditional jockeys and amateurs at 3.20pm and Kalifourchon who goes in the 2m7f handicap hurdle at 3.50pm.  Tis What It Is has had just one run and finished a close third at Ffos Las on good/soft ground - he can only improve for that experience and should go well again under David Noonan.  Kalifourchon has to bounce back from some disappointing efforts but he did win first time last season and is now 2lbs lower.  Meanwhile, over on the flat at Kempton David runs Tobacco Road who was a close second at Chelmsford on his penultimate start - a repeat of that would see him go well again under Tom Marquand.

Today there are four meetings taking place with flat cards from Beverley, Brighton and Leicester as well as a jumps fixture from one of our local tracks, Newton Abbot.  Brighton once again are awarded the wooden spoon for their prize money - £30,000 across their seven race card is poor to say the least, meanwhile Newton Abbot offers £44,000 across a six race card...I will say no more.  David has one runner today as Nice Thoughts contests the lady amateur riders handicap hurdle at Newton Abbot at 8.00pm.  He has some bits and pieces of good form although he has been a little disappointing of late and will need to step up on his most recent efforts.  Vicky Wade (pictured above) is in the saddle and she has been riding out at Pond House since last season.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat action from Wolverhampton, Chepstow and Windsor, while there is also a jumps card from Southwell.  There are no runners from Pond House today although stable jockey Tom Scudamore travels to Southwell for just one ride for his brother.  He looks as though he will have a bit to do so I won't be trying the 'one ride' theory tonight!  Meanwhile, Chepstow kick off their card with an Arab race at 1.30pm - I am not sure how anyone can make it pay when you consider the £500 first prize - if you finish sixth you pick up a heady £40!

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon and two of them are over the sticks at Worcester and Hexham while the flat card is from Pontefract. If you live in the west country you are in for a bit of a trek as your nearest venue will be Worcester, while Pontefract and Hexham are miles up country. I have been to Hexham in the past and we were made very welcome by the course officials - David managed to get beaten aboard a 1/3 chance...maybe that is why they were so nice to us?! I don't think he will thank me for bringing that one up again!

There are six meetings taking place this afternoon with all of the fixtures on the level.  The action comes from Royal Ascot, Ayr, Haydock, Lingfield, Newmarket and Redcar.  It is the final day of the Royal meeting today and it has been a fantastic week - the big race today is the Group One Diamond Jubilee Stakes at 4.20pm.  It is a nineteen runner sprint over 6 furlongs and has £600,000 up for grabs, but the race that I really like today is the Queen Alexandra Stakes run over almost 2m6f - there are a few future jumpers among the field and it will be interesting to see if Thomas Hobson, who was a winner at the meeting is turned out again, especially as Ryan Moore has been claimed by Aidan O'Brien for US Army Ranger.

There are six meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Royal Ascot, Redcar, Ayr, Newmarket and Bath, while there is also a jumps card from Market Rasen.  There are no runners from the Pond House team today although stable jockey Tom Scudamore has picked up one ride at Market Rasen - it's in the last so it looks like being another late night for Tom.  There is another cracking day's action ahead of us at Royal Ascot with two Group 1's on the card and there are a couple of short-priced favourites in Caravaggio and Winter - Winter seems a little ironic given that we are experiencing one of the hottest June's in recent history.

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with flat fixtures from Royal Ascot, Chelmsford City, Lingfield and Ripon as well as a jumps card from Ffos Las.  David has one runner this evening as Bambi du Noyer (pictured above) contests the 2m4f handicap hurdle from Ffos Las at 8.40pm.  Our gelding finished a good second on this track last time out and was only narrowly beaten.  He has posted three solid efforts since joining the Pond House team and certainly deserves to get his head in front.  A similar run to last time would give him an excellent chance under Tom Scudamore.
