Entries & Recent Form

There are three meetings taking place this afternoon with jumps cards from Worcester and Hexham and a flat fixture from Pontefract.  David has four runners today at Worcester; Port O'Clock, Al Roc (pictured above), Do Ya Feel Lucky and Cadeau d'Or.

Port O'Clock is the first of these as he contests the 2m7f handicap chase at 1.30pm.  A prolific winner between the flags in point-to-points, he won an Exeter hunterchase on his penultimate outing under similar conditions and makes his debut for the stable this afternoon.  A starting mark of 100 does not look unreasonable and Tom Scudamore takes the ride.  Let's hope that he can go well for the members of the David Pipe Racing Club, plenty of whom will be in attendance this afternoon.

Al Roc runs in the 2m4f handicap chase at 2.00pm.  He has been in terrific form this season, winning three of his last four starts, including at Uttoxeter last time.  He is 6lbs higher today which will make matters harder, but he cannot be discounted in his current vein of form.  Philip Armson gets on well with him and takes 5lbs off his back.

Do Ya Feel Lucky runs in the 2m4f handicap hurdle at 2.35pm.  She won last summer at this track from a 5lbs higher mark and would have followed up next time but for falling at the last at Newton Abbot and has claims on that basis.  She has been a bit below par since and has had a wind operation.  Each-way prospects under Tom Scudamore.

Cadeau d'Or is our final runner as he contests the 2m handicap hurdle at 3.05pm.  He ran a really good race first time out behind some highly-rated sorts but did not perform to that level next time.  A mark of 107 looks fair enough and he is another with decent claims with Tom Scudamore in the saddle.

The Canadian Grand Prix takes place this afternoon so you know where I will be.  Max Verstappen looks to have a golden opportunity to extend his lead in the drivers championship with Charles Leclerc incurring an engine penalty.  Meanwhile, Mercedes woes look set to continue with their 'porpoising' issues likely to rear it's ugly head again on this fast track which includes a couple of long straights.

It is the final round of the US Open today, but as I have been away I haven't really been following it and my knowledge of golf is near non-existent anyway!  If you are a fan, I hope you enjoy the coverage!
