All the latest going news, market movers and key punting pointers

Market Rasen: stages the only jumps action on Wednesday
1 of 1

The loss of Nottingham leaves just Market Rasen's jumps fixture on the turf today, supported by all-weather meetings at Lingfield, Kempton and Dundalk.

The wet weather has also claimed Leicester's meeting scheduled for Friday, which has been cancelled due to waterlogging and false ground. 

Frankel's jockey Tom Queally returns from a spell in America over the winter to take two rides at Kempton, while Nicky Henderson and Paul Nicholls, who will both be hoping for a big week at Aintree, are among the trainers represented at Market Rasen.

The best of Racing Post Sport

The sports team is not expecting another amazing Italian job tonight after Roma pulled off the Champions League's most outrageous heist at the expense of Barcelona in Rome. Real Madrid, led by Cristiano Ronaldo, have home advantage as well as the lead against Juventus in their quarter-final second leg.

Steve Palmer is not resting on his laurels after his 50-1 win with Patrick Reed in the Masters at Augusta. He is going higher in price in the Heritage with tips at 66-1 and 100-1.

Final thought 

Grand National-winning trainer Venetia Williams has sent out seven winners from her last 13 runners with a treble yesterday after a four-timer the day before. She has Houblon Des Obeaux (50-1) and Tenor Nivernais (100-1) in the big one on Saturday. Surely not?
