Wednesday's card at Newmarket is headlined by the Group 3 bet365 Craven Stakes (3.35), a key trial for next month's 2,000 Guineas. The race looks set to be dominated by Godolphin, successful with subsequent Derby winner Masar last year, as they field the Charlie Appleby-trained Zakouski and Royal Marine represents Saeed bin Suroor.

Elsewhere, Cheltenham hosts its first jumps meeting since the festival, with the highlight the £60,000 Silver Trophy Chase (2.40), while Beverley hosts a bumper eight-race card.

The treats keep coming this evening under the lights with action from both Dundalk and Southwell.
