Entries & Recent Form

We were out of luck yesterday at Newton Abbot with a second, third, fourth and fifth the yield from our four runners.  They all ran respectably on what was a competitive card.  d'Jango fared best, finishing runner-up in the staying handicap chase.  He is not the most fluent over fences but has stamina in abundance and he looks capable of winning again.  Ben Lilly was not beaten at all far into third in the conditional jockeys' staying handicap hurdle, a comment that also applies to Kolisi, who was fourth despite being badly hampered two out.  Ya Know Yaseff looks likely to benefit from a stiffer test of stamina in time.

 There are five meetings taking place this afternoon with flat fixtures from Newbury, Ayr, Newmarket and Catterick and all-weather action from Wolverhampton.  There are no jumps cards today and therefore, unsurprisingly, there are no runners from the Pond House team.

It's a busy start to the day nonetheless as we make the final preparations before opening our doors to our visitors for National Racehorse Week and the David Pipe Racing Club.  The staff have started an hour early this morning to make sure the horses are exercised before their arrival and it was dark and cold, I don't mind telling you.  On mornings like this, it makes me grateful to have an office job!

Whilst there are a couple of Group races on offer at Newbury, the big race of the day is the Ayr Gold Cup at 3.40pm.  25 horses line up for the 6f handicap which is worth over £77,000 to the winner.  Khanjar looks like an improving youngster - he is short enough in the market but is a worthy favourite.

*****

There are three Premiership football matches to look forward to this afternoon with Wolves hosting Manchester City, Newcastle versus Bournemouth and Spurs hosting Leicester.  City will move top of the table again today if they beat Wolves, whilst Newcastle should be too good for Bournemouth and Spurs will be disappointed if they can't beat bottom-placed Leicester who have only one point to show from their first six games.  Looks easy doesn't it?!
