OUR second week in and we have started as we mean to go on...

I forewarned you about the Dettori/Gosden/Enable roadshow - well, it entertained the Americans in no uncertain fashion last weekend.

Enable was superlative and so was Frankie Dettori, who also rode Expert Eye to win for the same owner.

He may be 47 but he is at the top of his game and surely now one of the all-time greats.

On to the winter game and we still need rain.

We've had some this week and more should come over the weekend, so the action should start to ramp up.

It is Badger Ales day at Wincanton on Saturday and looking at the entries and the prediction of heavy rain, Friday into Saturday, we could be in for a treat.

I notice Bags Groove is entered in the Novice Chase.

He went in my notebook after two wins at Taunton early in his career and hasn’t let the side down.

Wincanton is tough to jump around for a novice, but he looks rock solid and could be worth a bet at a reasonable price.

The main race of the day for ‘H on H’ will be the last when, hopefully, this season’s Taunton Racecourse Owners Club horse, At Its Own Expense, will make his debut in the Club’s colours.

Known as ‘Timmy’ to his friends, he is pleasing connections at home and we can’t wait to get him on the track.

If you fancy getting involved, there are three places left as I type... just email businessclub@tauntonracecourse.co.uk for the full details.

Two horses to follow this week:

Sliding Doors, trained by Ian Williams

He ran at Aintree just over a week ago and the five-year-old showed plenty of promise on his handicap debut and will stay three miles plus; there looks to be a couple of races in him this season.

Sneaky Feeling, trained by Philip Hobbs

He ran in the Tote Silver Trophy at Chepstow and was backed into 5/1, with Champion Dicky Johnson taking the ride.

He was plenty keen enough in the parade ring, with two handlers, and if that race has settled him down then he could fulfil his potential.
