Race of the Day: Lift-off for Williams at Lingfield


Gary Nutting is backing Venetia Williams to end her dry spell in the race of the day at Lingfield as the rain comes.

Lingfield Park is the only UK track to host three different disciplines (all-weather, turf Flat and jumps) and Sky Sports Racing cameras are back there on Tuesday.

Highlight of the seven-race jumps card is the Thorley Taverns Intermediate Handicap Chase (3.00), a 0-130 Class Three event that has attracted eight declared runners.

Constitution Hill is back… on Sky Sports Racing!

Watch the November Racing Weekend from Ascot, featuring the Coral Hurdle, all live on Sky Sports Racing on November 18-19.

The extended two-mile-and-seven-furlong contest was won last year by Fantastikas, who returned to score again in January before finishing seventh in the Ultima Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.

The ground on the chase track was described as good (good to soft places) yesterday afternoon, but conditions could well ease with heavy rain forecast from around dawn.
