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

It seems like it is neither a marathon, nor a sprint, but a bleep test. Yanworth makes his second start over fences at Exeter over slightly further, in a somewhat warmer race than 22 days ago. He will be tested but, if he's going to be as good a chaser, not an awful lot.

Up at Bangor, the feature 0-150 handicap chase is run in memory of Anne Duchess Of Westminster, owner of Arkle. It is a poignant day to remember another Gold Cup-winning owner.

The rest of the British action is further up still, at Ayr and Newcastle (twilight). Over in Ireland, Fairyhouse provides the day's racing.

The season-ending World Tour Championship starts in the early hours on Thursday. Check out Steve Palmer's preview.

Rafa Nadal is out of the ATP Finals, but winners are paying the same and Adrian Humphries thinks he's found a couple.

Final thought 

The death of Alan Potts gives pause for reflection not just on the man, but also the rapid rise of the super-owner in jumps racing. It is only a dozen years since Potts had the first runners in his now unmistakable silks, in a season when Gigginstown had a mere 22 winners between Britain and Ireland (157 last season) and Rich Ricci was still two years off. The manner in which the landscape has changed is quite something and Potts, while occasionally shy to show his face, was never far from the front.
