All you need to know on Chatteris Fen day including going from all the tracks

Divin Bere (right): won last year's Chatteris Fen
1 of 1

Huntingdon's Chatteris Fen is enjoying something of an upturn in fortunes.

Two years ago a certain Sceau Royal – now a best-priced 6-1 for the Racing Post Arkle – was victorious while last year Nicky Henderson's Cheltenham and Aintree runner-up Divin Bere got the better of Alan King's Grade 2 Adonis winner Master Blueyes.

Today Gumball, Philip Hobbs's one-time Triumph favourite who has been off since disappointing behind Apple's Shakira, bids to get his juvenile campaign back on track and is not even favourite as he takes on Henderson's Style De Garde who was an eight-length winner on his debut for the yard.

The day's other jumps meeting comes from Sedgefield, where Brian Ellison introduces a half-brother to his highly touted Ravenhill Road in the closing bumper, while there is all-weather action from Lingfield during the afternoon and Dundalk and Newcastle in the evening.

Final thought 

Matt Chapman may not be everybody's cup of tea but he has a right to feel aggrieved by the way ITV have treated him. An hour before the news broke he was replying to criticism on twitter saying "Could have done better. But hey we are all learning!"

ITV must have known what they were letting themselves in for given he already broadcasts live for the channel on a weekly basis and given the improvement he showed from his car-crash debut on the channel's racing coverage he could perhaps have expected a chance to redeem himself.
