Racing staff across Britain have the opportunity to attend Newbury's Thursday evening fixture free of charge as part of Racing Staff Week. 

The racecourse is offering one free admission ticket per valid stable pass or validity slip, with the first race off at 5.40pm.

The track's chief executive Julian Thick said: "We are delighted to offer free entry to all racing staff for the evening fixture on Thursday, which is 'Retro Disco' night in support of Racing Welfare's Racing Staff Week."

He added: "Come rain or shine, the 6,000 or so racing staff across the country put in long hours behind every horse who visits Newbury or any other racecourse.

"We know there is a big team who work incredibly hard to make it happen and we're happy to support such a worthwhile initiative."

Unbeaten three-year-old colt Celestial Force will be bidding to record his third win in the feature Thatcham Butchers Handicap (7.15), where he takes on four equally promising rivals.
