Everything you need to know including going from all the tracks

Bangor hosts the only turf racing on Thursday
1 of 1

With the feast of jumping over Christmas and New Year, there is something of a crash diet this week, illustrated most starkly today when three of the four scheduled meetings take place on the all-weather.

The sole turf meeting at Bangor is going to produce particularly testing ground, but after the threat of Storm Eleanor in recent days it is a relief that it is under no threat.

The two novice hurdles in the middle of the Bangor card seem likely to provide the highest-class action there, while Wolverhampton in the afternoon (a fillies' fast-track qualifier) and Chelmsford in the evening (Class 2 5f handicap) offer above-average fare.


Going report

Newcastle - first race 1.00

Bangor - 1.15
Heavy (GoingStick 5.4 at 9am on Thursday)

Wolverhampton - 1.55

Chelmsford - 6.15

Market movers

1.15 Bangor 3 Oneida Tribe 5-2 (from 11-2)
1.45 Bangor 5 Vice Et Vertu 9-2 (from 9)
2.50 Bangor 1 Fin And Game 11-10 (from 13-8)
4.05 Wolverhampton 9 The Hooded Claw 9-2 (from 12)
8.15 Chelmsford 1 Exchequer 13-8 (from 3)

What to back

Dave Revers picks one in the penultimate race at Bangor and makes his case in ten seconds.

The best of Racing Post Sport

The build up to the Australian Open has begun in earnest in Brisbane and we have looked at Thursday's matches.

The Premier League action continues on Thursday with Tottenham taking on West Ham - take a look at Dan Childs' best bet.


Final thought 

The wind and (relative) warmth forecast for Thursday may well keep Chepstow from having to survive an inspection on Saturday, but it does feel like just a slight waver from the forecasts could throw into doubt any fixture scheduled over the next few days.
