Racing: Spinning back on track

Click to follow
THE BALDING brothers' Champion Hurdle challenge will take different routes now that Toby has decided to miss tomorrow's Kingwell Hurdle with Morley Street. The 1991 champion will go straight to the Festival, while Spinning, who is in the care of Ian, will make his reappearance in the Wincanton race despite unsuitably soft going. Spinning was yesterday backed from 25-1 to 16-1 for the Champion with the Tote.

There are no plans to inspect Wincanton, but Catterick, due to race the same day, has snow on the track and poor prospects. Warwick's card today is in doubt and will be tested at 7.15. Yesterday's Huntingdon card and today's at Doncaster were abandoned.
