Key betting moves, going changes and non-runners
Racing returns to a main terrestrial channel for the first time since New Year's Day when ITV broadcast from Newbury and Doncaster this afternoon where the highlight at the latter course is the Betbright Grimthorpe Handicap Chase (3.35).
As well as a busy card on Town Moor there is a fascinating renewal of the Greatwood Gold Cup down at Newbury where they have had over 11m of overnight rain whilst some of the big players are also represented up at Kelso where it is one of their biggest days of the season highlighted by the Listed Premier Chase.
