Monday

Another week where rain and sub-zero temperatures are set to cause havoc across racing begins with a day which has already been depleted following the cancellation of Hereford’s fixture. 

A jumpers’ bumpers card has been arranged at Lingfield after the track was forced to cancel Tuesday’s meeting, while Sedgefield hosts the only traditional jumps fixture of the day across Britain and Ireland.

The reliable Tapeta and Polytrack surfaces at Wolverhampton and Dundalk ensure there will also be two Flat fixtures to focus on.

Tuesday

The Dan Skelton-trained Proschema, who was sent off 5-1 for the Greatwood Hurdle in November, features among the entries at Newcastle (3.55), which follows in Lingfield’s footsteps by hosting a jumpers’ bumpers card in place of its cancelled jumps fixture.

Limerick must pass an inspection on Monday afternoon if racing is to go ahead as scheduled, while Southwell stages a seven-race all-weather card in the evening.

Wednesday

The Listed Mares’ Chase at Warwick (3.05) is the highlight of the day and features 2019 winner Happy Diva taking on the Jonjo O’Neill-trained Annie Mc, who won a Listed mares’ race at Doncaster at the end of December.

Nicky Henderson’s Triumph Hurdle contender Heross Du Seuil, who runs in the Shishkin colours of owners Joe and Marie Donnelly, could also line up at Warwick (12.55).

A seven-race card on Kempton’s all-weather track can keep you entertained into the evening.

Thursday

Weather permitting, Wincanton stages a seven-race jumps fixture where some top staying chasers will vie for The Dick Hunt Trophy (2.10). Last year’s runner-up The Kings Writ attempts to go one better up against the likes of Springfield Fox and Shantou Flyer.

Further jumping action comes from Ffos Las in Wales and Down Royal in Northern Ireland, while Chelmsford and Southwell host all-weather fixtures on a busy day of racing.

Catterick will attempt to make it third time lucky in their attempt to stage racing following the cancellation of the track’s last two fixtures.

Tolworth Hurdle second Shakem Up’Arry, who trainer Ben Pauling believes will develop into a top-class chaser, could continue his education over hurdles at Chepstow (1.50).

Elsewhere, Lingfield and Newcastle both host seven-race all-weather cards.

The week explodes into life with a bumper weekend of action headlined by the Dublin Racing Festival at Leopardstown, which features eight Grade 1s across two days of top-notch racing.

Cheltenham Festival clues will be plentiful, with Champion Chase favourite Chacun Pour Soi bidding to win the Ladbrokes Dublin Chase (1.35) for the second time. He could face a tough challenge, however, in the shape of Ryanair Chase-winning stablemate Min.
