The afternoon jumps action in the UK on Monday comes from Ayr and Plumpton, before an evening all-weather card at Wolverhampton, while Punchestown stages its rearranged card from last week, featuring the Grade 3 Quevega Mares Hurdle.

Willie Mullins has dominated the Quevega Mares Hurdle since its first running in 2014 and he will hope for more success in the race, which is scheduled for 13:45 this afternoon, with Great White Shark (11/8).

Other contenders for the standout Punchestown opener include Black Tears (7/4), Western Victory (6/1) and Global Equity (10/1).

There are eight races in total from the Irish course today, finishing up with the 17:30, and Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ offer is available in both the 16:00 and 17:00.

Monday’s racing in the UK gets under way at Plumpton at 12:30 and there are seven races with the last action from the East Sussex course due off at 15:50.

Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ promotion is included in three races, the 12:30, 14:40 and 15:15.

In the opener, Jungle Prose (10/3) is expected to head the market before the off, while Dandolo Du Gite (7/4) and Harry Skelton’s Midnight Aurora (10/3) are likely to be in the mix in the latter two races.

Ayr’s meeting this afternoon starts at 13:20 and there are eight races from the Scottish venue, finishing with the 17:10.

There’s another ‘Extra Place’ offer in the 15:40, in which Billy Ray (10/3) is expected to catch the eye. Sam England’s charge showed up very well in his first run following wind surgery when finishing second of 18 at Wetherby last month, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see more progress today.

At Wolverhampton, the all-weather card starts at 16:20 and finishes up at 19:50 with eight races in total.

A field of six is set to line up in the 17:50 when in-form Venturous (4/1) will hope to come out on top again, having won three of his five starts since returning to all-weather racing.

Even though he’s usually seen over 5f nowadays, he’s a proven C&D winner, having triumphed here in April 2019.
