StableTalk: Dan Skelton with the lowdown on his 15 runners on Saturday and Sunday

| 01.01.2017

Saturday 12.40 Newbury – Welsh Shadow We’ve put a tongue strap on Welsh Shadow. This is a very competitive novices’ handicap chase and he’s got to put a bad run behind him but I hope he can do that. I have always thought highly of him. This race is very hot but the handicapper has given him a bit of help so I think he can be competitive. I have spoken to the clerk of the course, Richard Osgood, wh... more...

Luke Morris is confident of his chances at Wolverhampton on Saturday

| 17.09.2016

I, along with many others, was delighted to see Laura and Ian Mongan win the St Leger last weekend with Harbour Law, but I was especially pleased for the winning rider George Baker. George is one of the good guys. He’s a genuinely nice lad and one of the most dedicated in the weighing room. We all know about his height and day in, day out he’s hugely committed to make the weight and he goes about ... more...

| 24.08.2016

David Metcalf | August 24, 2016 Baron Bolt poised to follow-up at Catterick Baron Bolt scored in terrific style last time out and can make light of a penalty to follow-up in the 7f handicap on today’s card at Catterick (15.20).

| 02.08.2016

David Metcalf | August 2, 2016 Dynamic Drive can collect at Catterick Dynamic Drive can cash-in on what looks a handy mark to land the extended 1m 7f handicap on today’s card at Catterrick (16.45).

| 29.06.2016

David Metcalf | June 29, 2016 Tarnend Lass to cash-in on class drop at Catterick Tarnend Lass shaped well last time out and can take advantage of a drop in class to land the 5f handicap on today’s card at Catterick (14:30).

| 03.05.2016
