Going news, market movers and key punting pointers

Spare Parts, who won his seventh race of the year at Kempton, with trainer Phil McEntee
1 of 1

With Cheltenham now a blissful memory it's time to warm the cockles on the fiery hearth of the new Flat season that's coming right at us.

It's the 32Red Lincoln on Saturday and time to start recalling all those Flat horses you might have forgotten about.

One that needs no introduction though is Spare Parts, whose six wins this winter would have him in pole position for the £10,000 prize awarded on Good Friday to the all-weather season's winningmost horse if Captain Lars had not gone and won seven.

Trainer Phil McEntee sets Spare Parts the job of making it seven at Kempton tonight on a day of three jumps meetings at Haydock, Chepstow and Limerick and further all-weather fare at Southwell.


Going report

Southwell (first race: 2.00)
Standard

Limerick (2.05)

Chepstow (2.20)
Heavy (GoingStick: 4.6 chase, 4.8 hurdles on Tuesday at 2pm)

Kempton (5.45)

What to back

Our team of experts give you their best bets of the day (and evening), including a John Gosden debutant at Kempton.

Our Signposts Sweetspots point your compass in the direction of winners - with a hot pair to follow at Southwell. 

What to read

You know the best way to get over your Cheltenham hangover? Get stuck into the Lincoln, or start thinking about Aintree as we identify six horses who could be in clover on Merseyside after swerving the mud of the Cotswolds.

Talking of Cheltenham few know it better than Bernard Parkin, who remembers Golden Miller's last three Gold Cup wins in the 1930s and reckons Native River's success last week will take its place among  the vintage editions.


What to watch

Enjoy a look back at Cheltenham and peer forward to the flat season with our Postcast gang:

Haven't England's cricketers come back from Down Under yet? Nope. Four months on from the first Test against Australia at Brisbane, the first showdown of a two-Test series versus New Zealand kicks off in Auckland. Check out our top bets for the action here.


Final thought 

The clocks go forward on Sunday and it's just 45 days to the Qipco 2,000 Guineas. Time to get some proper Flat form study in.

One horse that needs no introduction though is Spare Parts
