Lincoln: main race of the day takes place at Doncaster
1 of 1

The British Flat season might not be as anticipated as it once was - all-weather racing and the international delights mean the code is a year-round sport - but plenty of enthusiasts will no doubt welcome it.

Doncaster, as usual, takes centre stage, hosting the Betway Lincoln and there's a Brucie Bonus with not one, but two Betway Brocklesbys as the first two-year-old race of the season has been divided.

Four races from the track will be live on ITV4 along with three from Kempton, which also hosts a decent Flat card, albeit on the all-weather.

Stratford, Uttoxeter and Navan host jumps meetings, while it's back to the Flat for Chelmsford this evening.
