All you need to know on the day Criquette Head-Maarek signs off

Criquette Head-Maarek: saddles her final two runners at Chantilly this afternoon
1 of 1

A low-key meeting at Chantilly would not normally be the one attracting the most attention.

But that is the case today as the glorious training career of Criquette Head-Maarek comes to an end with her final two runners, Damanda's Dream (2.40) and Monsieur Enzo (3.50), bringing the curtain down in the concluding all-weather handicap.

Elsewhere there is decent action at Meydan while in Britain the going will be testing at Wincanton and Towcester but not at Southwell this afternoon and Kempton tonight where they race on the all-weather.

Wincanton is the scene for Lizzie Kelly's first ride since her win on Agrapart in the Cleeve Hurdle at Cheltenham on Saturday, when she partners Siruh Du Lac in the 2m4f handicap chase.


Going report

Wincanton (first race at 1.20)
Heavy (GoingStick: 5.3 at 9.30am on Thursday)

Southwell (AW) (first race 1.30)
Standard

Towcester (first race 1.40)
Soft (GoingStick 7.1 at 8.30am on Thursday)

Kempton (AW) (first race 5.55)

What to read

It's just two days to the first Dublin Racing Festival and we have all-important news on what the ground is going to be like. 

The Grand National entries are out but one big name from the Nicky Henderson yard won't be there after being ruled out for the season.


What to watch

Just what is it like to work in a racing yard? We found out at Nigel Twiston-Davies's yard . . .


The best of Racing Post Sport

Can outsiders the Philadelphia Eagles cause a shock against hot favourites the New England Patriots in Sunday's Super Bowl? Check out what our experts think in our Super Bowl Postcast.


Final thought 

There were 19 Irish-trained winners from 28 races at last year's Cheltenham Festival so the chances are this weekend's Dublin Racing Festival is going to be the most informative two days of the jumps season yet.
