All you need to start your day including going from all the tracks

Sceau Royal: takes his first steps over fences at Warwick
1 of 1

It's beginning to look quite wintry on the racecards. Today in Britain and Ireland, the action is split between jumps and the all-weather. In the afternoon, Huntingdon, Warwick and Lingfield stage fixtures alongside Tramore in Ireland. In the evening, it is the turn of Chelmsford.

Jumps fans will be warmed by the chasing debut of slick hurdler Sceau Royal at Warwick and a fair handicap chase on the same card which contains that horse's stablemate, former Listed winner Sego Success.

Final thought 

Sceau Royal at his best was one of the most fluent jumpers of a flight of hurdles. If he can translate that to fences, he will be an interesting novice chaser.
