Entries & Recent Form

There are two jumps meetings taking place today at Huntingdon and Sedgefield but the stable does not have any runners.  We did have Barrier Peaks entered at Huntingdon but have decided to give him a few more days after his win at Exeter on Tuesday and he is likely to head to Chepstow next Tuesday and run under a penalty.  Philip Armson has picked up a ride in the Conditional jockeys race for trainer Harrier Bethell.  He rides a horse called Lopes Dancer which is about a 22/1 and he is one of the outsiders of the field.  The next stable runners will be at Warwick tomorrow, Ocean Heights and Paricolor will be representing Pond House.

There are no runners from Pond House today, we did have entries at Bangor but that was abandoned due to waterlogging on Monday.  We do have some jumps action to watch however as they race at Catterick this afternoon.  They host the Yorkshire National at 2.50pm and we considered making some entries but it is a race that has not been that lucky for us in the past and so we decided against it in the end with it being quite a long drive to get there is well.  We ran a horse called Shaking Hands in it one year and he fell at the first and last year Sidi Ismael fell mid race!  There are only seven runners but it looks a competitive race with Bushy Park trained by Phil Kirby just shading favouritism.

Barrier Peaks yesterday at Exeter after his win

It was great to get a winner at Exeter yesterday, our first of 2023.  It has been a little frustrating in the last 10 days with a few seconds and the horses running well but just failing to get that winner and so it was nice to get that monkey off our back so to speak. Held up towards the rear, Barrier Peaks travelled strongly throughout under a patient Tom Scudamore.  He moved through the field smoothly as they turned for home and then challenged the favourite who was leading, just before two out.  He then went nicely clear without the jockey ever having to get too serious.

Keppage at Leicestershire 

Today we have five runners at our local Devon track, Exeter. Kepagge, Anglers Crag, Barrier Peaks, New Age Dawning and Lock Out make up our quintet of runners. Kepagge runs in the opening contest on the card, a 2m7f handicap hurdle of conditional and amateur jockeys who have ridden less than 20 winners by a particular date. While we don’t have any eligible jockeys for the race based with us at the yard the moment we have secured the services of Toby Wynne for the ride. He is the son of former top jockey Steve Wynne and is  based up north in its Oliver Greenall and Josh Guerriero. He rode a winner for his bosses at Ayr yesterday and has ridden over 20 winners in his career so is looking one of the most experienced in this race.

Tango Arumba at Newton Abbot

Today we have four runners at our most local track, Taunton. Tango Arumba, Moodofthemoment, Via Dante and American Sniper. Tango Arumba runs in the opening contest on the card, a 2m3f novices hurdle at 12.55om and Tom Scu rides. After winning a bumper on stable debut she disappointed on hurdling debut but took a step back in the right direction at Chepstow last time. She wears a hood for the first time today and we hope she can build on last time.

  Ramses De Teillee Runs at Sandown Today

Today we have our first runners for a few days and our lorry will be setting off to Sandown very shortly with Ramses De Teillee and Poseidon on board. Ramses de Teillee runs in the valuable Veterans handicap chase final at 3.00pm with Tom Scudamore on board. This a great race introduced a few years ago to give the good older horses a chance to compete for a good prize without the younger legs getting in the way!! It is a race we won with a horse called Soll back in 2016 and we are hoping of a repeat success with Ramses this afternoon.

Today there is just the one jumps meeting again, this time at Ludlow and the stable does not have any runners. There are flat cards at Kempton and Southwell and they race on the all-weather in Ireland at Dundalk. The next stable runners are at Sandown tomorrow where we have Ramses De Teillee and Poseidon declared. David Noonan looks to have some good rides at Ludlow and I think he will be amongst the winners again today.
