All you need to know for today's racing as Exeter and Sedgefield pass inspection

1 of 1

The latest Colin Tizzard-trained star could burst on to the scene at Sandown this afternoon, as the progressive White Moon bids to make it three from three over hurdles.

This assignment will be his toughest to date in the Grade 2 Ballymore Novices' Hurdle, and it is a race with a rich history, so whoever triumphs will be worth noting.

Away from Sandown there is jumps racing at Exeter and Sedgefield, while Chelmsford and Dundalk provide the all-weather action.

The best of Racing Post Sport

Our top team reflect on the final round of group matches in the Champions League, and preview every match for the Premiership this weekend, including a couple of high-profile derbies.

Final thought 

We haven't seen Douvan since March, and following his Tingle Creek scratching, trainer Willie Mullins suggested it will not be until after Christmas that he makes his reappearance. The longer the wait goes on, the more questions he has to answer.
