There are four meetings taking place this afternoon with a jumps card from Worcester, flat fixtures from Haydock, Newmarket and all-weather action from Newcastle.  David has three runners this afternoon at Worcester. Koi Dodville, Oceanline and Free Chakarte.  Koi Dodville is the first of those as he contests the 2m½f handicap chase at 2.30pm.  He has taken to fences well this season, finishing in the frame in each of his three starts to date.  He has his first start since a wind operation today and Fergus Gillard takes 3lbs off his back.  He has claims, but there are only two places for betting purposes.

Oceanline (pictured above) contests the final of the Fixed Brush novices' handicap hurdle at 3.40pm and it is a hot-looking contest, although with over £38,000 up for grabs to the winner, it is hardly surprising.  Oceanline was a good winner of his first start for the stable over course and distance in July and the form has been franked by the performances of the runner-up since.  He is 3lbs higher today and this is a much tougher race, but he clearly relishes conditions and looks to have sound claims in a wide-open contest.  Tom Scudamore rides.

Free Charkarte is our final runner in the 2m conditional jockeys' handicap hurdle at 4.50pm.  A winner on her first start over timber, she has been placed in all of her subsequent starts.  The handicapper does not appear to have taken many chances with her mark, but she does receive a handy age allowance.  She needs to improve on her most recent outings, although a wind operation may have helped and she could outrun her odds under Philip Armson.

Meanwhile, it is day two of Newmarket's Cambridgeshire meeting and it features an excellent card with a couple of Group 2's, a Group 3 and a Listed race on offer.  I couldn't have been much more wrong in yesterday's Tattersalls Stakes with Victory Dance beating only the 200/1 outsider of four, despite being heavily backed into favouritism.  The winner, Nostrum, looked very good for Sir Michael Stoute, who is not renowned for his juveniles these days, but this one is prominent in the market for next year's 2,000 Guineas already.

Wales were beaten 2-1 by Belgium last night in the UEFA Nations League and it is the turn of England for the home nations tonight as they face their European Cup conquerors, Italy.  England currently are last in their group and will be hoping to get something out of this game or they could face relegation.

I went to the Natural History Museum the other day.  I asked how old the Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton was.
"68 million and 7 years" the curator replied.
"How can you be so accurate?" I asked.
"Well, I started 7 years ago and they told me it was 68 million years old then" he said.
