Racing fans can take in six meetings on what promises to be a busy day of action across the UK and Ireland on Wednesday.

Nottingham will be our first port of call for a seven-race card on the Flat that goes to post from 13:00-16:30, with the offerings at 14:45 and 15:55 benefiting from Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ promotion.

They will also go on the Flat for seven races at Catterick between 13:44-17:09, with the opener at the North Yorkshire track seeing Betfred’s ‘Super Extra Place Race’ offer come into play, meaning they are paying out four places rather than the usual three.

Secret Equity (4/1) could be the one to beat in that 5f Handicap, as she was a scorer at Thirsk less than a month ago, finishing a short-head in front of Polam Lane (7/2), who could be her nearest rival once again.

Bangor-On-Dee will be our next port of call for a seven-race jumps meeting from 13:55-17:16, with the penultimate race on the card – a three mile Handicap Chase for four-year-old’s and above – covered by Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ promotion.

Latest Horse Racing Events

The sole offering of the day on Irish soil will come from Bellewstown between 14:00-17:25 where the inaugural Barney Curley Charity Cup will take centre stage.

The team event will see leading trainer Willie Mullins and top rider Frankie Dettori pick two teams of seven jockeys and they will compete for points across two races at 15:10 and 17:25, with points being awarded on a sliding scale for the top-eight finishers in each race.

The latter of those races will also benefit from Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ promotion, with Arctic Blaze (11/4) expected to go close under the guide of jockey Rachael Blackmore.

There is then a double-header of evening action on the all-weather to look forward to, starting at Kempton where there will be eight races from 17:00-20:30, with Betfred’s ‘Free Bet if 2nd’ offer coming into play for the 19:00 from the Middlesex track.

Newcastle will then round off the day with six races, with the action in the north east getting underway at 17:45 before reaching a conclusion at 20:15.
