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

Lingfield stages a jumps fixture on Tuesday
1 of 1

Jumps devotees might see Southwell, Lingfield and Wolverhampton, and think it is a day of all-weather action. But they would be wrong, as in Nottinghamshire and Surrey it is the winter game that takes centre stage.

There is plenty of intrigue in a competitive novices' handicap chase at Southwell (12.50) and division one of the fillies' novice stakes at Wolverhampton (1.40), which features Sun Maiden, a half-sister to Midday by Frankel.

Lingfield's feature might be the veterans' chase (3.00), which is over 2m4f, fairly short for such a race, and includes old favourites such as Grand Vision and Vino Griego.

The Champions League takes centre stage this evening, with the ties including Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid and Man United vs CSKA Moscow.

Final thought 

The Becher Chase has attracted exactly the sort of field one would expect, but it still excites. A finish akin to what Blaklion and Vieux Lion Rouge served up in Haydock's Grand National Trial in February would do nicely.
