There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with flat fixtures from Haydock, Yarmouth, Hamilton and Kempton as well as a jumps card from Worcester.  David runs Tis What It Is, Three Star General and Baby Sherlock at Wocester, while Work contests the two mile handicap on the level at Kempton at 9.10pm.  Tis What It Is contests the conditional jockeys and amateur riders' race at 3.20pm - our four year old has only run once and shaped promisingly when third at Ffos Las.  He should have learned plenty from that experience and looks to hold each way claims at likely odds of around 10/1.  Meanwhile, Three Star General (pictured above) looks to have one to beat in the novices' hurdle at 4.20pm - the slight drop back in trip should not inconvenience and Tom Scudamore is in the saddle.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Salisbury, Yarmouth and Lingfield as well as a jumps fixture from Southwell.  The next runners from Pond House will come tomorrow when Work runs on the level at Kempton, while declarations are made this morning for tomorrow's jump meeting at Worcester where the stable has a few entries.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with the action all coming on the level at Ayr, Brighton, Pontefract and Windsor.  Brighton offer only a miserly £31,000 across the seven race card...they will certainly try to get away with it if they can!  Unsurprisingly there are no runners from the Pond House team today.

There are just two meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Goodwood and Nottingham - it still never fails to amaze me why there are not more meetings on a Sunday when most people are able to go.  The best card looks to be over in Ireland at the Curragh where there is a flat fixture hosting Group 3 and Listed contests.  Hardly Group company I know, but there is a seller at Goodwood for two year old's over five furlongs today - I love sellers, although they are much better if they are over 1m2f or 1m4f then there is a much better chance that they will stay two miles over hurdles.

There are seven meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Haydock, Newmarket, Chester, Beverley, Catterick and Chepstow while there is also a lovely jumps card from Stratford.  David has one runner today as Tobacco Road contests the 1m2f flat handicap at Chester at 5.30pm.  He ran a cracker last time out under today's jockey Tom Marquand when narrowly touched off at Chelmsford City and he should go well again from only a 2lbs higher mark.  The big negative is that he is drawn widest of all in stall 12 and even over these intermediate trips, the draw is important at Chester.  Hopefully he will break well and be able to secure a good position - if he does that he would not be without a chance.  Meanwhile, over at Stratford Pond House jockey David Noonan looks to have picked up a nice outside ride so it would be good if he were among the winners.

There is a bumper day of action ahead with no less than six meetings taking place including flat fixtures from Brighton, Carlisle, Goodwood, Haydock and Wolverhampton while there is also a jumps card from Stratford, although this is a hunter chase meeting.  We have had two days of torrential rain down here in the west country and if that has been replicated throughout the rest of the country, keep an eye on the going as it is bound to have eased considerably.  Talking of the hunter chase fixture, I still cannot believe that they allow professional trainers to compete in these events - where else do you hear of professionals taking on amateurs on a level playing field?

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Ripon, Haydock, Sandown and Carlisle as well as a jumps card from Bangor.  David has two runners this afternoon; Vincent's Forever and Arkadios.  Vincent's Forever (pictured above) contests the 3.20pm at Bangor, a 2m3 1/2f handicap hurdle - he was decent on the flat and put up his best performance over hurdles to date last time when third at Taunton.  He wouldn't need to improve a great deal on that to figure here under Tom Scu.  Arkadios runs in the 2m7f handicap hurdle at 4.20pm.  He was in the process of running a cracker at Newton Abbot last time out until making bad mistakes at the final two flights.  He steps up in trip today but that could help him and he has the ability to go well in a race of this nature under regular rider Michael Heard.
