Everything you need to know about a busy Wednesday of action

Golden Horn made a winning debut at Nottingham on this card three years ago
1 of 1

There is plenty going on this Wednesday, with a mixture of Flat and jumps action during the afternoon and a pair of all-weather meetings on either side of the Irish Sea in the evening.

Fakenham stages its Greene King Raceday and there is jumping too from Taunton, while Nottingham stages the Flat card on which none other than Golden Horn emerged back in 2014.

Have you noticed how early the sun is going down now? Luckily, both Kempton and Dundalk are staging eight-race cards to carry racing fans into Wednesday evening.

Final thought 

Golden Horn introduced himself to us on this corresponding day three years ago and while it looks like the two divisions of the Nottingham maiden named in his honour today does not include anything of his class, the truth is we do not really know yet. Will a champion emerge this afternoon?
