All the latest news as RSA Chase faller Top Ville Ben runs at Wetherby

Wetherby: racing today
1 of 1

A good geographical spread with today's three meetings coming from the West Country, Yorkshire and the Fens.

The fact that the top three trainers in this season's table have one runner between them – Paul Nicholls with the odds-on Bird Of Prey at Taunton – hints at a low-key day.

Wetherby does offer a first opportunity for redemption for Cheltenham Festival faller Top Ville Ben who looks to put his RSA Chase mishap behind him in the 2.40.
