Key betting moves, going changes and non-runners
There's something for everyone in Britain and Ireland today with jumps fans well served by the presence of Triumph Hurdle contenders including Charli Parcs, Dinaria Des Obeaux and Landofhopeandglory at Kempton and Fairyhouse.
In contrast to those two-milers. Newcastle stages the marathon Eider Chase which is double the distance and will feel it on ground described as Soft, heavy in places.
For Flat fans, the absence of Mutakayyef (first revealed by the Racing Post this morning) from the featured Group 3 Betway Winter Derby only slightly diminishes the card at Lingfield where the Listed Hever Stakes features a fascinating rematch between Lancelot Du Lac and Pretend.
