Going news, market movers and tips on an action-packed day

Chepstow: one of five tracks racing on Friday
1 of 1

Two jumps meetings and three all-weather cards make up the action in Britain and Ireland on Friday, with no fewer than 35 races to digest on a busy day.

Polytrack racing from Lingfield joins Catterick and Chepstow over jumps during the afternoon, while the usual all-weather cards from Dundalk and Wolverhampton fill the evening slots. 

Champion jockey Richard Johnson may again be the man to follow at Chepstow. He will be hoping for an early strike on Don't Ask in the opener at 1.10, with a further four chances to extend his title lead to follow.

What to back

It takes Dave Revers just ten seconds to reveal his best bet at Catterick on Friday

 


What to read

Paul Nicholls on Thursday warned Nicky Henderson will not have everything his own way at his local track next week by committing stable star Politologue and forgotten horse Saphir Du Rheu to Newbury's star-studded meeting

Gigginstown House Stud have 11 entries in this year's Grand National but racing manager Eddie O'Leary has warned they will not have a runner if it is deemed they are unfairly handicapped.

The Irish racing and point-to-point communities were united in grief on Thursday following the news that Willie Codd, brother of reigning champion amateur rider Jamie, had died at the age of 43 on Wednesday night.


What to watch

The Friday Night Lights team are back and after a lucrative four winners last week, can Thom Malone, Johnny Ward and Gavin Lynch repeat their success at Dundalk? There are a few tips for Leopardstown's Dublin Racing Festival too.

Rod Studd gets to work solving the Super League puzzle, while Rugby Union fans can check out the Six Nations Postcast. 

 


Final thought 

Eddie O'Leary pulled no punches as he revisited last year's argument regarding the Grand National weights on Thursday, claiming the great race will be even better once outgoing BHA handicapper Phil Smith hands over the framing of the weights. 

Everyone is of course entitled to their opinion, yet considering O'Leary's Gigginstown House Stud won the race back in 2016 with Rule The World, it cannot be all bad, can it?

Champion jockey Richard Johnson may again be the man to follow at Chepstow and he will be hoping for an early strike on Don't Ask in the opener
