Going news, market movers and punting pointers as Fontwell passes inspection

Batallion, who makes his hurdling debut at Southwell today
1 of 1

Make the most of racing today as meteorologists forecast upcoming snow and ice disruption.

Naas starts the ball rolling and features Grade 2 and 3 races with unsurprisingly Gordon Elliott having a hand in both.

Fontwell has passed an 8am inspection and it is feature time at the track, with the course's seasonal highlight, the Grade 2 totepool National Spirit Hurdle, taking place. It features the 2016 winner Lil Rockerfeller, who was last year's Sun Bets Stayers' Hurdle runner-up. 

Southwell completes the action with seven races.   


Going report

Naas (first race 1.40)

Soft

Southwell - 2.00

Soft, good to soft in places

Fontwell - 2.20

Final thought 

Humphrey Bogart could do nothing for the 2016 Epsom Derby form on his hurdling debut at Kempton on Saturday. Today it is the turn of a Lingfield Winter Derby runner Battalion, sixth last year, to state his case over hurdles at Southwell for the Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham.
