Entries & Recent Form

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Exeter and Warwick and a couple of all-weather flat fixtures from Lingfield and Wolverhampton.  David has two runners at Exeter today; Buster Edwards and Panic Attack (pictured above).  Buster Edwards reverts to hurdles today after a spell chasing and he contests the 2m7f handicap hurdle at 2.00pm.  He stays well, will handle the ground and has won from higher marks in the past.  He needs to improve on recent outings but could have each-way claims at reasonable odds with Fergus Gillard taking 5lbs off his back.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Chepstow, Huntingdon and Sedgefield as well as an all-weather flat fixture from Southwell.  David has four runners today at Chepstow; Red Lion Lad, Eamon An Cnoic, Poker Play and Barrier Peaks.  Red Lion Lad contests the 2m3½f maiden hurdle at 1.20pm.  An Irish point-to-point winner, he  produced a promising first effort under rules when third at Exeter but was a little disappointing next time in really testing conditions at Ffos Las.  A reproduction of his first effort would give him each-way claims under Tom Scudamore.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps action from Ludlow and Doncaster, whilst there are all-weather flat fixtures from Southwell and Kempton.  David has three runners today;  Nordic Combined at Ludlow and Fort Summer and Mr Clarkson at Doncaster.  Nordic Combined (pictured above) contests Ludlow's 4.45pm race - a 2m handicap hurdle.  He has won over the minimum trip at Taunton on heavy ground so conditions should be to his liking.  He remains 4lbs above his last winning mark but  jockey Fergus Gillard claims 5lbs.  It is a competitive little race but he looks to have each-way claims.

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Taunton and Wetherby and an all-weather flat fixture from Newcastle.  David has six runners today - five at Taunton; Airton, Home Farm House, Great Tempo, Rathlin Rose and Shoot To Fame and one at Wetherby; Sexy Lot (pictured above).  Our first runner is Airton who contests the 2m3f selling hurdle at Taunton at 12.30pm.  He is a solid performer who has won at the track and this represents a drop in grade.  He should once again run his race, although he would prefer better ground.  Fergus Gillard is in the saddle.

The stable enjoyed a good weekend with a couple of winners on Saturday at Newbury and Wincanton.  Remastered was excellent in landing the Grade 2 Reynoldstown Chase at Ascot to stretch his unbeaten run over fences to three.  Jumping boldly, he was given a great front running ride by Tom Scudamore and with further good leaps in the straight he had more than enough in hand to see off the favourite on the run-in.  He has improved in leaps and bounds since the switch to obstacles and there could be more to come to yet.

Today there is a bumper afternoon of jumps action (for a Sunday) with Newbury's rescheduled Betfair Hurdle meeting the headliner among three jumps cards.  David has two runners at Newbury; Dell' Arca in the 3m handicap hurdle and Night Edition in the big race.  Well done to everyone at Newbury and the BHA who have managed to save this prestigious meeting, let's hope they are rewarded with some exciting action. The other meetings come from Uttoxeter and Market Rasen.
