Tuesday afternoon’s racing action in the UK comes from Ffos Las and Catterick, before evening meetings at Kempton and Chelmsford, while they also go at Roscommon in Ireland.
Ffos Las’ six-race card gets things started at 13:25. with the finale there due off at 16:00. Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ promotion, paying four places, is available in the opener, in which Our Jester (8/11) is the pick of the bunch.
This dual bumper winner, who was seventh in the Weatherbys Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham Festival in March, has shown plenty of promise in qualifying runs after being switched to the Flat, so has great claims in his first handicap.
Catterick also has six races this afternoon, with the action getting under way at 14:10 and ending after the 16:45.
Chelmsford’s evening meeting starts at 17:40 and they run until the 20:10 at the Essex venue, with the penultimate contest, at 19:40, designated as a ‘Super Extra Place’ affair by Betfred, who are paying out on four places in this 11-strong 7f race.
Pontius (9/4) is expected to lead the market after finishing runner-up in two of his last three outings, while Street Poet (11/2) won over C&D in May, so should be respected if turning in a repeat performance of that form.

Kempton stages seven races between 17:50 and 20:50 and the 19:50 is another of Betfred’s ‘Super Extra Place’ races, when 11 runners are set to line up over 6f.
Prop Forward (11/4) is back in action after a seven-month absence when last seen winning a 5f event on New Year’s Day at Southwell.
Clive Cox’s charge has been hiked 11lb up the weights for that victory, but this still looks like a decent return race for him, when Nationwide (10/3), Scot’s Grace (11/2) and Mohareb (13/2) are likely to be his main threats.
Over in Ireland, meanwhile, they start at 17:25 at Roscommon, with the seventh and final race there scheduled for 20:30.
