Elsewhere, action at Lingfield returns to the all-weather after a brief, one-day jumps hiatus and Plumpton hosts six races.

For a second consecutive day Kempton caters for evening racing fans, with eight races to be enjoyed on the Polytrack.

Final thought 

The Russian Doyen impressed on his chasing debut at Exeter in November before nothing went to plan in his subsequent start at Cheltenham last month. It will be interesting to see whether the six-year-old can re-establish his progressive profile in the novice limited handicap at Newbury (2.15).
