There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with flat fixtures from Redcar and Yarmouth, an all-weather flat card from Wolverhampton and a jumps meeting from Fontwell.  It is a fairly non-descript day with the pick of the action a 0-90 handicap at Yarmouth at 2.55pm.  Although there are only seven runners, it is a tight little race.  Farhh To Shy is the likely favourite but is short enough in the betting and better value may lie with course winner Global Esteem, who was a winner at Ascot on his penultimate start.

We had just one runner yesterday at Worcester, although Story Of Friends did not trouble the judge in the 2m7f handicap hurdle.  He is entitled to come on for his first start after a break.

We enjoyed a great day at Pond House yesterday as we hosted the last of our three open days.  Following on from the owners on Saturday, the David Pipe Racing Club on Sunday, yesterday we opened the doors to members of the public who had signed up to visit the stable through the National Racehorse Week initiative.  They saw the horses in the yard and during exercise and were treated to a parade of horses old and new, including Cheltenham Festival heroes Moon Racer and Un Temps Pour Tout (pictured above) who are doing really well in ROR classes for Clare Poole.

All that was topped off by a lovely spread of homemade cakes in the marquee afterwards, lovingly prepared by David's mother-in-law, Ange, his eldest daughter, Sophie, Angela Edwards and Jane Dougherty.  What more could you want?!

Everton joined Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea at the top of the Premier League following a 3-1 defeat of lowly Burnley last night to make it three wins from four matches.

There is Champions League action taking place tonight with Manchester United and Chelsea both in action.

I watched a documentary on marijuana last night.  Personally, I think all documentaries should be watched like that!
