All you need to know for the day's two all-weather meetings

Wolverhampton: stages this afternoon's action
1 of 1

For probably the first time since Good Friday racing was inaugurated, we are reliant on all-weather racing beyond the end of its season. With Warwick and Musselburgh cancelled due to waterlogging, Wolverhampton in the afternoon and Chelmsford in the evening keep the show on the road.

Wolverhampton stages the strongest race of the day, a 0-90 sprint at 3.15, while Chelmsford arguably boasts the greater depth, although the handicaps there have drawn slightly smaller fields.

Maddy Playle takes just ten seconds to pick out her best bet at Wolverhampton.

What to read

Ready for the Grand National? The Gold Cup third seems to be.

A total of 13 trainers have had their ability to self-certificate non-runners withdrawn after the BHA's crackdown on non-runners. Find the list here.

What to watch

We have plenty of Aintree updates, including this on a potential Grand National favourite.

It's Masters time, folks. Steve Palmer gives his headline selection for Sunday's wearer of the green jacket. 

For those who can't tell their Magnolia Lane from their Pink Dogwood, here is everything you need to know.

Final thought 

The Grand National is about as late as it gets this year, which is a small mercy given the weather we have had. You don't need the longest memory to know what can happen when Aintree is verging on the unraceable . . .
