We had a narrow miss at Uttoxeter yesterday afternoon with Lady Reset a good second in the mares' handicap hurdle.  She stuck on in her usual game fashion having been under pressure from some way out and is a really admirable horse.  The winner is a potentially well-handicapped horse, being some 18lbs lower than her highest mark, so Lady Reset really lost little in defeat here and there are clearly more races in her over hurdles or back on the flat.  Red Happy ran okay in the 2m6f handicap chase but will be better suited by a more thorough test and returning to a right-handed track.

There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with a jumps card from Kelso and flat fixtures from Beverley, Sandown and Yarmouth.  There are no runners from Pond House today and a blank day for the jumps tomorrow, our next runners are likely to come at Newton Abbot on Friday, for which we declare this morning at 10am.

There was a lovely sight as we had a few unexpected spectators this morning, with around a dozen or so deer spotted next to the gallops during first lot.

Liverpool stopped the rot to some extent last night as they beat Ajax 2-1 in their Champions' League group match, although it was not such good news for Spurs as they fell to Sporting Lisbon with goals in the 90th and 93rd minutes.

The Champions' League continues this evening with Chelsea hosting Salzburg and Manchester City at home to Borussia Dortmund, whilst Rangers and Celtic are also in action.

It would appear that the proposed fight between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua, scheduled for December, will take place after Anthony Joshua accepted Fury's tems yesterday.  Had the fight been a year ago, it would have been the hottest ticket in town.  However, Joshua has now lost three of his last five fights and whilst I wouldn't like to take him on, it would seem like a fairly straightforward task for Fury and not one likely to set the pulses racing.
