The latest news on non-runners, going and betting moves

Clan Des Obeaux: novice chaser runs at Ayr
1 of 1

There is something for everyone on Saturday with jumps fans able to enjoy a fantastic card at Ayr, headlined by the £215,000 Coral Scottish Grand National (3.55), while Flat aficionados can try to decipher Classic clues at Newbury, with a couple of Guineas trials taking centre stage.

The Fred Darling (2.30) and Greenham (3.05), both Group 3 contests, were less informative than is often the case last year after waterlogging at Newbury meant that the races were hastily rescheduled to be run on the all-weather at Chelmsford. But this time both races have attracted some unexposed, exciting three-year-olds, and it would be little surprise were a genuine Classic contender to emerge.

The 21-runner Spring Cup (3.40) provides punters with a challenge and adds extra intrigue to the Newbury card, while Ayr's Scottish Champion Hurdle (2.45) looks a strong renewal and is also a competitive betting heat.
