The cold weather continues to take over Great Britain and over our great sport, as for the second day in a row there will be no jumps racing on the cards.
Both Fakenham and Wincanton are off with frozen surfaces, whilst Catterick have already abandoned their Friday card twenty-four hours in advance with the weather not expected to improve.
Meanwhile, Chepstow remain hopeful and are due to inspect the track at 2pm on Thursday ahead of their Friday fixture.
Scottish Cheltenham Trials are planned to place this weekend at Musselburgh, and their clerk of the course Harriet Graham, has already revealed conditions were looking "very grim even with covers".
An inspection will take place at midday on Thursday.
However, all smiles as there is all-weather action to look forward to today hosted by Southwell - which kicks off at 1:30 on the fibresand.
Tonight there are eight races also live from Newcastle, which begins at 4:05.
It wouldn't be winter Thursdays without Meydan either, and there are seven races commencing at 2:30 this afternoon, which sees Ryan Moore's first visit to the Middle East this term.
Our Dark Horse is bidding for the hat-trick today; we have had 25/1 and 16/1 winners in the past two days and you can find out about today's selection.
