All the latest news as jump racing regains the spotlight at start of Easter week

Taunton: conditions described as soft at the track
1 of 1

Day three of the Flat turf season and not a meeting in sight as jump racing monopolises the action with fixtures at Huntingdon, Market Rasen and Taunton.

There is all-weather action this week but Flat turf fans have to wait until Friday and Bath for another meeting on the grass following two days at Doncaster.

Monday's cards

Perhaps Flat racing should have postponed the turf start until after the Good Friday all-weather championship gala.

James Burn has set up today's highlights with Christian Williams and Denis O'Regan in the spotlight at Taunton.

Going report

Huntingdon (first race 1.30)

Good to soft, good in places on hurdle course (GoingStick: Hurdle 7.2; Chase 6.8 at 7am on Sunday morning).
Race distances: first +190yds, second, fourth and seventh +168yds, third +26yds, fifth +223yds, sixth +25yds

Market Rasen (2.10)

Good to soft, good in places hurdles; Good to soft, soft in places chase.
Race distances: first, third and seventh 
+114yds, second and fourth +156yds, fifth +132yds sixth +192yds

Taunton (2.20)

The best of Racing Post Sport

It is still international week in football and, after England tiptoed through the tulips to beat Holland in Amsterdam, it is Portugal's turn to face the Dutch in Geneva tonight and the sports team is going for goals.

Final thought 

Let's hope the weather forecast is wrong about another snow show over Easter. Make the most of today's good weather.
