It tells you everything about the way his career is going that winning a race with the John Smith's Grand National favourite at Ayr yesterday was just a prelude to the main business of the week for Donald McCain. Ballabriggs, after all, was essentially just keeping out of trouble as he won his second novice hurdle of the campaign, pending a return to fences after the publication of the Aintree weights a fortnight today. And his flourishing trainer has a rather more earnest assignment in mind for the unbeaten Peddlers Cross, who warms up for the Stan James Champion Hurdle on Saturday.

One of the most exciting hurdling recruits in Paul Nicholls' yard, Al Ferof, justified the high opinion in which he is held and steadied his own ship with an effortless victory at Taunton yesterday, his third attempt over obstacles under rules. And although victory was not unexpected – he was 1-7 to see off his inferior rivals – after the grey's two luckless first efforts few were more relieved than the champion trainer.

Belinda Bauer's Blacklands caused the hearts of hardened reviewers to flip a beat. Was that extraordinary insight in to a battle of wits between a murderer and a young boy just a one-off sensation, or was this newcomer to the crime lists capable of another book on the same level? Happily for the genre, Darkside shows she can do it again. Bauer takes the same setting, a sleepy Somerset town, with the same people, but shifts the focus, so that the boy who was the principal character in the previous book plays a minor part and the narrative is seen mainly through the eyes of the local policeman, Jonas Holly, and his wife, Lucy, who suffers from MS.

Few trainers have found this winter quite as vexing as Venetia Williams. The freeze set in just as her stable seemed to be achieving a better rhythm, and Walk Tall's success at Taunton last Thursday was its first in over a month. Yesterday, however, she won the bumper at her local track, Hereford, and today she hopes Credit Swap, last seen winning the Cambridgeshire, can keep up her renewed momentum when making his hurdling debut in the opener at Leicester.

Even the fog that hopelessly obscured proceedings at Newbury yesterday could not match the sense of disorientation achieved by the sheer, bewildering variety of good horses finally released from jump racing's deep freeze. Between Big Buck's, whose ghostly form eventually strolled out of the gloom at Newbury, and Big Zeb, who confirmed his own stature over at Leopardstown, so many could be recommended for top billing that it is hard to know where to start. Ultimately, however, none grabbed the lapels quite as insistently as Hurricane Fly.

This weekend the focus will start to sharpen on the Champion Hurdle scene, notably – and, nominally, appropriately – on the reigning king, Binocular. Weather allowing, the six-year-old will open the defence of his crown in the Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle. And yesterday, though confident that his charge is as ready as he can be at this stage of the campaign, his trainer, Nicky Henderson, was still reaching for all available talismans.
