Going news and punting pointers as jump racing resumes in Britain
Wetherby has fended off the mini beast from the east to signal the return of jump racing in Britain following two blank days.
With snow-hit Exeter already cancelled, Wetherby had to pass an inspection on Monday but it is all systems go for a card headlined by an £18,500 3m handicap hurdle (3.40).
After two jumps meetings in Ireland on Monday, Clonmel keeps the show on the road, while the all-weather action comes from Newcastle in the evening.

Those in the north would have breathed a collective sigh of relief after Wetherby passed an inspection for today. A number of meetings in the region have been lost to the adverse weather in recent days and more additional fixtures would be welcomed.
