The Jumps season is back with a bang this weekend as we see racing return to the home of the Jumps, Cheltenham, and at Aintree. Cheltenham's two-day Showcase Meeting starts on Friday and signals the start of the season for many horses as they plot their courses for March's Cheltenham Festival. Racing UK are also live from Newbury and Kempton Park on Friday with the day's live action followed by this week's edition of Betting Lab.
Mark Your Card gets Saturday's coverage underway before we head back to Cheltenham and Newbury. A duo of Group 3 races is the main attraction on Newbury's eight-race card. Mick Channon's Chairmanoftheboard is favourite for the Molson Coors Stakes after an eye-catching eight-length debut victory at Goodwood earlier this month. Over at Cheltenham, Nicky Henderson's Haul Away will be looking to complete a five-timer in the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle. Racing from Kelso and Kempton Park compete Saturday's line-up.
Racing UK wrap up the weekend's action with 14 races from Aintree and Wincanton. Aintree's Grade 2 Monet's Garden Old Roan Chase is the day's highlight and sees the likes of Cloudy Dream, Modus and Frodon battle it out for the £45,016 first prize.
