Entries & Recent Form

A busy day lies ahead with no fewer than six meetings taking place.  There are flat cards from Newbury, Newmarket, Thirsk and Doncaster while there are a couple of jumps fixtures from Bangor and Uttoxeter.  David has three runners at Uttoxeter this evening; Monetaire, Abracadabra Sivola and Bambi du Noyer.  Monetaire and Abracadabra contest the three mile handicap chase at 6.35pm - Monetaire has run creditably twice at Stratford and Haydock and should go well under Tom Scudamore, while Abracadabra Sivola was a winner on his penultimate start at Taunton and is partnered by winning jockey David Noonan.  Bambi du Noyer runs in the 2m4f handicap hurdle at 8.05pm - he ran well last time when fourth at Ffos Las on his debut for the stable and if he gets this longer trip he is not without a chance.

          David & David Redvers at a
             Local Point to Point

Today there are six meetings, flat cards at York, Newbury, Newmarket, Newcastle and Hamilton plus a jumps card at Aintree.  David has three runners at Aintree this evening, Dell'arca, Juste Pour Nous and Max Do Brazil.  Dell'arca runs in the 6.40pm 2m4f handicap hurdle.  He won last time out at Ascot on good ground which he seems to like and a similar run should put him in the picture.  Free Stone with just 10st 2lb could be the  big danger.  Just Pour Nous runs in the 7.10pm, 2m1f novice hurdle.  He finished third on his debut hurdle run last time at Kempton.  He pulled a bit hard that day so if he settle a little better hopefully he can be in the shake up.  Max Do Brazil has decent form in France but he is yet to show that in two runs in England.  Maybe the step up in trip tonight will help.

There are five meetings today, flat cards at York, Salisbury and Newmarket plus jumps cards at Fontwell and Perth.  Well after non-stop rain at Pond House yesterday we have some nice sunshine this morning!  The Two Amigos was a non-runner at Worcester yesterday as rain at the track changed the going to soft.  It is a hunter chase meeting at Fontwell and they have £15,000 on offer for all their races.  I still don't think it is right for professional trainers to have runners in these type of races.  David Noonan is up at Perth for one ride in the last race, a horse called Important Moment and let's hope it is!  I like the bookmakers comments at Worcester, "is there anybody out there"!  The weather was pretty bad at Worcester yesterday and so hardly anybody was going outside!  The jockey to follow at Worcester yesterday was Noel Fehily who rode a treble and he won on a 20/1 shot, it is so easy after the results!

    The Two Amigos runs at Worcester
Today we have five meetings, flat cards at York, Yarmouth and Bath plus jumps cards at Worcester and Perth.  David has one runner at Worcester, The Two Amigos in the 4.45pm with Tom Scu on board.  This is a 2m4f handicap hurdle and although he is yet to win over hurdles he did run a good second over three miles at Taunton and has other okay form.  He is an Irish point to point winner who has a small each way chance at 12/1.  Richard Johnson goes all the way to Perth for two rides so he must think they have a good chance.  It looks a cracking card at York today with a couple of Group races on the card, mind you they all look competitive.

    Work runs on the Flat at Chepstow
Today we have five meetings, jumps cards at Warwick, Sedgefield and Southwell plus flat cards at Beverley and Chepstow.  The low prize money today is at Chepstow where they have £32,000 on offer for a seven race card.  Tom Scu goes to Southwell for a couple of spare rides, Buble looks the best of them in the 8.00pm.  David has a runner on the flat at Chepstow this evening.  Work runs in the 8.40pm, a 2 mile handicap.  Pat Dobbs is on board and she won her last two starts on the flat at Chelmsford.  If she runs to that form she would have a chance but she was a bit disappointing over hurdles last time.

There are five meetings today, flat cards at Wetherby, Brighton and Windsor plus jumps cards at Kempton and Towcester.  It seems strange to have a jumps card at Kempton and a flat card at Wetherby!  Tom Scu goes to Kempton for a couple of rides and then he travels onto Towcester for their evening meeting.  Herbert Park finished fourth yesterday at Ludlow but he was beaten a fair way.  He has dropped nine pounds but looks like he needs some more help from the handicapper.  There is a quote from a winning owner Sue Howell yesterday which I love, "putting Richard Johnson up halves your odds but doubles your chances of winning"!

This afternoon there are just two jumps cards taking place with the action coming from Ludlow and Plumpton. David has one runner at Ludlow with Herbert Park contesting the three mile novices' handicap chase at 2.30pm. It is an open contest with £12,000 up for grabs and our charge has the ability to go well in a race of this nature although he is yet to replicate the best of his hurdles form over fences. Tom Scudamore is in the saddle.
