                         CADEAU D’OR
             N/R 4.30PM NEWTON ABBOT

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with a jumps card from Newton Abbot and flat fixtures from Chepstwo, Ripon, Epsom and Carlisle.  David has five runners today at Newton Abbot; Cadeau d'Or, El Paso Wood, Dindin, Lady Reset and d'Jango.  Cadeau d'Or runs in the 2m2½f maiden hurdle at 4.30pm.  A winner on the flat, he has already shown a good deal of promise over hurdles, including when a close third at the track under topweight in a handicap last time.  This looks easier and he has a good chance with Tom Scudamore aboard.

We have had a lovely start to this Bank Holiday Monday and there are five fixtures to look forward to today with a jumps card from Cartmel, flat fixtures from Chepstow, Ripon and Epsom and all-weather action from Southwell.  There are a couple of quality races at Cartmel, but on balance the pick of the action today comes from Ripon where they host a Listed race for two year old's as well as a 0-100 handicap.

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with flat cards from Goodwood, Yarmouth and Beverley.  That's three days in a row without all-weather racing!  I'm sorry if you're a fan, but I can't say I miss it that much.  The pick of today's action comes from Goodwood where they have a real mixed bag featuring Group 3 action at the top end and a seller at the opposite end of the spectrum.

After a slightly murky start to the day, the sun has begun to burn off some of the early morning mist.  There are six meetings taking place this afternoon with a jumps card from Cartmel and flat fixtures from Beverley, Newmarket, Goodwood, Windsor and Redcar...and once again, not an all-weather card anywhere.  What's going on?!  The pick of the action on these shores comes at Goodwood where they host Grade 2 and 3 events on the card.

There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with flat fixtures from Thirsk, Newmarket, Ffos Las, Hamilton and Goodwood.  I know, I can scarcely believe it either...not an all-weather card to be seen!  There was no measurable rainfall at Pond House overnight (and only 1mm from the previous 24 hours), but that was not the case in many parts of the south.  Heavy rainfall has clearly got into the ground at Newmarket (where they had been watering) and Goodwood where the official going is soft.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat fixtures from Carlisle and Ffos Las and all-weather action from Chelmsford City and Newcastle.  There are no concerns about field sizes today with Ffos Las offering good/soft ground, whilst at Newcastle the Racing League initiative means that there is plenty of prize money on offer and minimum fields of 10 runners.  The first race at Newcastle is at 5.45pm and the entire meeting is covered by ITV4 as well - let's hope that it continues to be a worthwhile exercise for them and helps to attract new fans.

The stable was back among the winners at Bangor yesterday afternoon with Red Happy (pictured above) running out a good winner of the 3m handicap chase under Tom Scudamore.  Our five year made much of the running under a positive ride and despite shifting a bit to the right at some of his fences, he jumped well in the main and had his rivals in trouble from a fair way out.  Keeping on well in the closing stages, he was much better than the progressive runner-up at the last as he recorded a seven length success.  Still only a youngster, he stays well and will be even better going the other way around.
