Jumps fans, starved of racing since Plumpton on Monday, could be back in action with a 6-race card at Leicester today.

It's an all-chase programme but it will have to pass an inspection at 9.30 this morning.

Most valuable event of the day in the UK is the tote.co.uk Fillies' Conditions Stakes at Chelmsford City. Three-time course and distance winner Solar Heights is the market-leader here for James Tate and County Wexford native P J McDonald.

Meanwhile over at Meydan there's Irish interest with Michael Halford's pair, Surrounding and Massif Central, competing. Tadhg O'Shea has been booked for the spins.
