ITV Racing presenters dominate the shortlist for the Horserace Writers and Photographers Association broadcaster of the year award for 2017.

The channel, in its first year as the terrestrial rights holder since 1985, supplies three of the four contenders for the award, which has been won by Nick Luck seven times.

Main presenter Ed Chamberlin is joined by Opening Show host Oli Bell and co-presenter Luke Harvey, plus Racing UK's Lydia Hislop, on the list of possible winners of the prestigious accolade, which will be presented at a ceremony at London's Royal Lancaster Hotel on December 4.

Karl Burke, who enjoyed two more Group 1 successes this season, is shortlisted for two awards, while the Two Golf Widows partnership who tasted glory with One For Arthur in the Grand National in April are nominated for owner of the year.

A small number of tickets for the ceremony are still available at £95 each from
