Watch Thistlecrack's return live on Racing UK today!

Friday 1 December 2017

December is here and behind the first door of your Racing UK advent calendar is day one of The Ladbrokes Winter Carnival at Newbury - their most-high profile meeting of the season! 

Live coverage gets underway today at 11am and takes in all seven races from Newbury, including the Grade 2 Ladbrokes Long Distance Hurdle (3:00) - which features the mouthwatering clash between Unowhatimeanharry, only beaten once in his 11 starts for Harry Fry, and Thistlecrack who reappears following his scintillating King George win nearly a year ago.

On Saturday it is all about the feature - and after 60 years the Hennessy Gold Cup has become the Ladbrokes Trophy (3:00). The race has been won by legends of the game such as Arkle, Mill House and Denman. This year there are 21 contenders with Coneygree heading the weights. Topping the ante-post betting is Total Recall, trained by Willie Mullins. The action at Newbury is supported by a seven-race card at Bangor-On-Dee. 

Nick Luck and Luck On Sunday gets Sunday off to a flying start with debate on the week's hot topics supported by live racing from Sha Tin. We then head back to Carlisle and Leicester for complete coverage from both meetings.
