With no racing in Ireland on Saturday, the full focus will be on the five meetings across the UK – three on the turf and two on the all-weather.
The action gets underway on the Polytrack at Lingfield, where they host an eight-race card, beginning with the opener at 11:45.
The standout contest takes place at 14:00, with eight runners set to go over 1m 2f in the Listed Quebec Stakes.
Dubai Warrior (6/4) is a three-time course-and-distance winner and is likely to go off the favourite, but Sir Michael Stoute’s Sangarius (2/1) – with Ryan Moore on board – is certainly one to consider.
Haydock, where the going is heavy, hosts a seven-race meeting with the opener being a handicap hurdle at 11:50 and they conclude the card with a 3m 58y handicap hurdle at 15:15.
The race of the day at the North West track, in terms of prize money, is the 14:40 – the Tommy Whittle Handicap Chase – with 10 runners set to go to post.
A six-year-old won this race last year and another, Highest Sun (8/1), looks to have a chance of landing the spoils for Colin Tizzard, after a much-improved display at Newbury last month.
We then head east for the third UK meeting, with the going described as soft for Newcastle’s seven-race card – which begins at 12:00 and concludes with the final race at 15:25.
Betfred are paying 3 places in the 14:50, where seven runners are set to go to post for a Novices’ Handicap Chase over 2m 75y.
There are six high-quality National Hunt races on the card at Ascot, where the going is soft-heavy in places.
There is £45,500 up for grabs for the winner of the Long Walk Hurdle at 14:25, with 10 runners set to go in the Grade 1 contest.
The Worlds End won this race in 2019 and is back again this time to defend his title (28/1), but others look more likely this time to claim the victory.
Paisley Park (2/1), last year’s Stayer’s Hurdle winner at the Cheltenham Festival, goes into this race after finishing second in the Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury last month.
The evening meeting on Saturday takes place in the Midlands, with Wolverhampton hosting a nine-race all-weather card.
In the 19:00 race, Trevie Fountain (2/1) rises 6lb after winning at the track earlier this month, but is still capable of another success this 11 runner handicap.
