Entries & Recent Form

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Brighton, Pontefract and Windsor as well as a jumps card from Worcester.  David has three runners at Worcester; Kalifourchon, Just Midas and Ardmillan.  Kalifourchon (pictured above) contests the 2m7f handicap chase at 2.45pm and he is well treated on the best of his hurdle form.  He fell last time out in a chase at Stratford but was still going well at the time and is capable of a big run with a clear round.  Just Midas runs in the 2m4f maiden hurdle at 4.45pm.  He has run creditably in a couple of bumpers but was disappointing in a hurdle race last time out and would need to improve on that effort to figure here.  Our final runner is Ardmillan who is owned by David's partner Leanne.  He is having his first start for the stable in the 2m7f handicap hurdle at 5.15pm.  He is well handicapped on his old form so let's hope that the change of scenery has done him good.

It is a quiet day ahead with just two meetings taking place this afternoon, both on the flat with the action from Goodwood and Nottingham.  Unsurprisingly there are no runners from Pond House this afternoon.  Indeed, the next runners are likely to be at Worcester on Monday.

This afternoon there are seven meetings taking place with six flat cards from Haydock, Newmarket, Musselburgh, Beverley, Catterick and Lingfield as well as a jumps card from Stratford.  There are no runners from Pond House today although stable jockeys Tom Scudamore and David Noonan have both picked up outside rides at Stratford.

There are no less than six meetings taking place this afternoon with five flat cards from Carlisle, Brighton, Wolverhampton, Haydock and Goodwood supported by a jumps fixture from Stratford.  The jumps fixture from Stratford is an all hunter chase card so unsurprisingly there are no runners from Pond House today.  There is still some local interest however with Gerry Supple's talented wife Jo taking the mount aboard the Leslie Jefford trained Master Baker at 6.40pm.  Leslie used to work for Martin in the early days and rode for David in point-to-points.  I wouldn't be surprised to see this one bring home the dough!  The race is for the John Corbet Cup - a contest that David's secretary Gail won many years ago with a horse called Trentishoe, something that she may have told us about once or twice over the years...

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon and they are all on the level with the action coming from Haydock, Ripon, Yarmouth, Sandown and Carlisle so you are out of luck if you are a fan of the jumps.  Still, there was plenty of memorable scenes from yesterday's jump card from Uttoxeter as Andrew Thornton brought the curtain down on his 29 year riding career.  He went out with a winner aboard Amirr in the maiden hurdle.  It wasn't a champagne bath like the Formula One drivers' get, but he was soaked with buckets of water by his weighing room colleagues.  He wasn't the only one to get wet with present Luke Harvey getting a bucket over the head...what a waste of water!

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Hamilton, Wolverhampton, Kempton and Wetherby as well as jumps action from Uttoxeter.  There are no runners from Pond House today, although stable jockeys Tom Scudamore and David Noonan have both picked up rides at Uttoxeter so let's hope they have a productive day.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with a flat card from Newcastle and three jumps fixtures no less, with the action from Fontwell, Bangor and Southwell - we are being spoiled!  David has one runner today as ex-French Grade One bumper winner Delirant makes his debut for the stable and has his first start over timber in the maiden hurdle at 2.30pm.  His French form was on heavy ground, but he looks as though he will handle conditions and has schooled well over hurdles at home.  He hasn't run for a while but is a fascinating runner.  Tom Scudamore is in the saddle and he is in for a busy day as he then has to head to Southwell for three outside rides.  Meanwhile, David Noonan who rode a double at Newton Abbot yesterday has picked up three outside rides at Fontwell and he looks to have a couple of decent chances.
