Everything you need to know to help brighten up your day

Fakenham: one of three meetings on Tuesday
1 of 1

The nights are drawing in fast - the sun will have set by just after 4pm today - so it is not a day to be dwelling on your selections for the action, or you may have missed it.

Jump racing takes place at Fakenham, where the admirable 13-year-old Occasionally Yours bids for two wins in a week in the opening selling hurdle. Southwell also hosts a fascinating novices' chase, in which any of the five could conceivably win, while for all-weather enthusiasts there are seven races to get stuck into at Lingfield.

All this takes place as we prepare for another excellent weekend of racing. So, despite the early sunsets, it is not all bad.

Final thought 

Sizing John and Douvan were friendless in the markets on Monday for the Betfair Chase and Betfair Tingle Creek Chase. With both out to good prices for the respective contests, it will be interesting to see if punters decide to offer them any support or continue to steer clear.
