The card at Huntingdon may have been postponed due to flooding, but there are still four race meetings to look forward to in the UK and Ireland.

The UK action gets under way at 11:55, with a seven-race card at Kelso. The going at the Borders track is Soft for their jumps meeting.

The biggest race of the day at Kelso comes at 14:45, with nine runners set to go to post for the Novices’ Chase over 2m 7f and 96y.

Minella Encore (9/2) is one to be considered, with the eight-year-old looking for improvement on a disappointing chase debut at Market Rasen last month.

Prior to that run, the gelding had been impressive over hurdles and looks to have a chance in what is a pretty open contest.

Sunday’s other UK meeting is on the all-weather at Southwell, with another seven races to look forward to on the fibresand. The opener, a handicap sprint, is due off at 12:01 and the lucky last is a Handicap over 1m 4f and 14y at 15:25.

The standout race is at 14:20, where seven runners are set to go in the Bombardier British Hopped Amber Beer Handicap.

The Ollie Pears-trained Mosakhar (7/1) is a course and distance winner and a return to this track today could see a return to winning ways, especially after a good run at Chelmsford last time out.

There are also two meetings in Ireland on Sunday, with an early start to proceedings at Cork (Soft to Heavy) – with the opener at 11:45.

There is a 42,000 euro winning prize up for grabs in the 13:25 – the Kerry Group Hilly Way Chase over 2m 160y.

Five runners are set to go to post with the Willie Mullins-trained Chacun Pour Soi the 1/4 favourite after showing real promise last season.

There is also a seven-race card at Punchestown, where the going is Soft to Heavy ahead of the opening race at 12:35.

The highlight of the meeting is John Durkan Memorial Chase (13:40), with seven set to go to post for the Grade 1 contest.

Ryanair Chase winner Min (2/1) is amongst the contenders, one of four runners for trainer Willie Mullins – who also runs Melon, Allaho and Tornado Flyer.
