Entries & Recent Form

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Chester, Bath and Chelmsford as well as jumps fixtures from Kelso and Newton Abbot. David has three runners at Newton Abbot this afternoon; Prospera Pascha, La Vaticane and Gabrial The Great.  Prospera Pascha contests the 2m5f mares' novices' hurdle - she has shown promise in bumpers and has schooled well at home.  Hopefully the longer trip and hurdles will help to bring about some improvement.  La Vaticane runs in the 3m2f handicap chase having run with credit in the Grand National last time.  She will find this a lot easier although she does have to concede weight all round.  Gabrial The Great runs in the 2m5f handicap chase and this looks to be a good race for the £13,000 prize money.  Our charge ran well behind Fox Appeal last time out on this track and should be sharper for that.

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon and we are spoiled by there being three jumps cards from Fakenham, Exeter and Ffos Las, meanwhile there are a couple of flat fixtures from Ayr and Leicester. David runs Mister Drifter in the 2.15pm race at Ffos Las and Purple 'N Gold and Gone Too Far in the 7.15pm from Exeter.

Today we have five fixtures taking place with flat cards from Ayr, Southwell, Chelmsford and Windsor as well as a jumps card from Stratford. David has one runner this afternoon as Citrus makes his chasing debut in the 2m6 1/2f novices' handicap chase at 3.50pm. He was a winner on good ground over hurdles and has schooled well at home. Tom Scudamore is in the saddle and I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him run well at a big price.

It is a quiet day with just two meetings taking place and flat action from Newmarket and Hamilton. The card at Newmarket is a high quality affair and it features the first fillies' Classic - the 1,000 Guineas. Meanwhile, there is also a Listed contest and a Group 2 in support.  It could be another good day for the Aiden O'Brien team - he saddles favourite Rhododendron as well as Hydrangea and ante-post gamble Winter...there could be more flowers for the Ballydoyle stable.

There are six meetings taking place this afternoon with flat action from Newmarket, Goodwood, Thirsk and Doncaster, while there are jumps fixtures from Uttoxeter and Haydock. David has a rare runner at Goodwood on the flat this afternoon as recent Cheltenham charity race winner Three Star General runs in the 1m6f handicap at 1.35pm. He had some fair form on the level in Ireland for Aiden O'Brien and ran well on his hurdles debut at Ascot before winning at Cheltenham. Pat Dobbs is in the saddle and I thought that he had sound each way claims.

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with action from Chepstow, Lingfield and Musselburgh, while there are a couple of jumps cards from Cheltenham and Fontwell. Lingfield get the wooden spoon today with just £30,000 up for grabs across their seven race card. Something has to be done about this poor prize money - the trouble is, as long as they keep getting owners and trainers running for these sums, the tracks will continue to try their luck.

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Redcar, Lingfield and Mussleburgh as well as a couple of jumps fixtures from Towcester and Sedgefield. I know it is the summer, but the most prize money on offer comes from Towcester who have £42,000 up for grabs - it doesn't say an awful lot for the other four fixtures I'm afraid.  You may recall that I was talking about flat jockey Joe Fanning yesterday, well he rode Cardsharp to win the first yesterday so he should have been able to afford to travel home again!
