Today's Horse Racing: Wednesday meetings

We take a look at a busy afternoon of racing action throughout the UK...

What Horse Racing is on today?

A quartet of British race meetings are scheduled for this midweek, with National Hunt action from Hexham and Warwick joined by all-weather meetings from Southwell and Kempton on a busy Wednesday.

Hexham gets the ball rolling, with seven races at the Northumberland track and ground forecast to Good-to-soft for their meeting on an afternoon when champion jockey and current championship leader Brian Hughes will be hoping to add his tally from four rides on the Hexham card. 

Hughes is the leading rider at Hexham across the previous five season with 46 winners to his name.

Warwick is next off and there's no doubting the eyes of the racing world will fix on their Highflyer Bloodstock Novices' Chase (2.45) as Nicky Henderson's Jonbon makes his debut over fences in a clash that sees him taking on smart performers in Monmiral for Paul Nicholls and West Cork for Dan Skelton.

Afternoon all-weather racing comes from Nottinghamshire with nine races on the card at Southwell. They begin with four straight sprints over the flying five-furlongs, the highlight being a Class 2 handicap at 2.38 which features the likes of Intervention for Mick Appleby and David O'Meara's Alligator Alley in a field of nine runners.

Last but by no means least on Wednesday is the evening all-weather card at Kempton Park where the Polytrack surface is expected to race Standard to slow for their nine-race offering. 

Lots of end-of-year novice action to begin the card, with some late-blossoming two-year-olds getting a chance to strut their stuff, many for the first time at the track.

One with experience is Charlie Appleby's filly Whispering Dream, a clear second-best over C&D on her debut here four weeks ago behind a John Gosden-trained debutant. Champion jockey William Buick takes over in the saddle for the Fillies' Novice Stakes (5.20) and will be hoping his partner can go one place better.
