The Independent Online
WITH NINE meetings in Britain tomorrow, four on Tuesday, and relatives at large, there has never been a better time to go racing. Visitors to Wetherby could do worse than back Venetia Williams' Nordance Prince (1.30) in the Castleford Chase.

At Ayr, novice hurdler Entertainment (12.55) can defy top weight in the opener. At Hereford, Lord Of Love (2.40) could also make class count while, at Huntingdon, Sue Smith, better half of Harvey (the showjumper, not the rabbit), provides the best bet in the well handicapped course-and-distance winner Brambleberry (3.00).

Market Rasen stages the Lincolnshire National and Mark Pitman, from a family with a grand National tradition, may score with Jet Boys (2.05).

At Sedgefield, take a chance on well handicapped Little Tuska (2.30), a faller last time. Progressive Kates Charm (1.55), is the bet at Wincanton, while Swan Hunter (3.50) is the Wolverhampton Fibresand fancy.

At Leopardstown, See Just There (2.40) can win the Paddy Power Chase, Florida Pearl should land Tuesday's Ericsson Chase, and today Fable (1.30), and Alexander Banquet (2.40), will be hard to beat.

On Tuesday at Kempton, Raleagh Native (1.15), Dato Star (1.50), Mazileo (2.25) and Rollcall (2.55) can go well, while at Chepstow, Billy Nomaite (1.10), Persian Waters (1.40) and Edmond (2.15) look best. At Wetherby, back Speaker Weatherill (2.35) in the Rowland Meyrick Handicap Chase, while at Leicester Red Ark (1.35) is well handicapped.

Tomorrow's meeting at Newton Abbot has been abandoned due to waterlogging.
