After racing at Wincanton and Catterick was called off due to the weather, there are now just three cards to come on Wednesday, with punters still able to get their racing fix at Lingfield, Kempton and Thurles.

Wednesday’s racing starts in Ireland, with Thurles’ card passing an early-morning inspection. More rain overnight means the going is soft, but further bad weather is expected on Wednesday.

The opening race is one to savour, with the Grade 2 Coolmore N.H. Sires Kew Gardens Irish EBF Mares Novice Chase up first.

Willie Mullins’ Colreevy (4/6) has won back-to-back races and demands respect, but Gordon Elliott’s Mount Ida (5/1) is one to watch after a recent success at Cork.

Racing at Thurles comes to a close at 16:15, after the eight race of the afternoon. Churchstonewarrior (11/8) and Calagogo (13/8) are expected to fight it out in the Thurles (Pro/Am) Flat Race over two miles and three furlongs.

Lingfield’s card features seven races on Wednesday, where the going is standard on the polytrack.

Ruby Red Empress (5/2) was unlucky not to finish closer over course and distance 11 days ago, and that performance means she could land the spoils this time around.

Racing at Lingfield finishes at 16:05, just before Kempton’s bumper card gets under way at 16:10.

There are nine races scheduled at Kempton, with the going standard to slow on the polytrack.

The first race over seven furlongs starts at 16:10, while Betfred will pay an extra place in the 19:20 as well as the final contest at 20:20.

Alexandra Dunn’s Jersey Grey (13/2) has failed to impress of late, but he will race off a basement mark, and the two-mile trip may suit him.
