It's jumps at Newcastle today too and trainer Oliver Greenall will be hoping that last week's C&D scorer Lucky Lover Boy can make it two wins in seven days around Gosforth Park in their 2m handicap due off at 2.13.

Henry Brooke's partner races from an unchanged mark this afternoon – leaving him 7lb 'well-in' for his latest trip to the north-east.

National Hunt racing at Market Rasen on Thursday where former course and distance winner Bempton Cliffs will be eager to continue progress as a chaser in the Pertemps Network Handicap Chase (1.55).

He's won 3-4 previously in this code and has been nudged up 4lb for his winning reutnr at Sedgefield last month.

Wincanton is the local track of Britain's champion trainer Paul Nicholls and the Ditcheat supremo certainly enjoys making hay on his visits here, with a 28 per-cent strike-rate from nearly 300 runners in the last five seasons at the Somerset circuit. 

He's got some good opportunities to add to that win-rate this afternoon and his string are in flying form of late.

It's a hectic evening at Chelmsford as the Essex venue hosts an eight-race card under the floodlights.

The highlight on the card is the Class 2 sprint over six-furlongs at 6.30 with five useful performers going for the prize, including Keith Dalgleish's Soldier's Minute and the long-absent Richard Hannon runner Ventura Tormenta.
