There are five racecards for UK and Irish fans to get excited about on Thursday, with a total of 35 races.
Of the three jumps cards, Carlisle is the first off and they have seven races from 13:00 to 16:30. Betfred’s Extra Place Race offer is included on both the opener and the 14:10.
In that first race at 13:00, a Handicap Hurdle, Not What It Seems looks good value to finally break his maiden at 12/1, while 70 or so minutes later, Upandatit is 2/1 to back up his first career win, which he acquired last time out at Kelso.
Next to the opening all-weather card of the day at Southwell, where they go off eight times between 13:45 and 17:40. Betfred have included their Super Extra Place Race on the 14:20 and a recent win at Wolverhampton is likely to point punters towards 6/4 Odisseo.
The sole Irish card on Thursday takes place at Thurles. There are seven races in County Tipperary going off at 13:50 and concluding at 17:15.
The 15:35 carries the Extra Place Race where 8/1 Molly Kaye could well take a first win since October 2020 when she won over this course and two-mile trip.

Back to the eastern side of the Irish Sea and Wincanton, where they again hosts seven contests between 14:00 and 17:30. The Extra Place Race features on the 16:55 but in the race before at 16:20, the Super Extra Place Race is the focus.
A decent Handicap Hurdle over 2m3f, this could finally be the chance that connections of 9/2 River Tyne have been hoping for, having placed in her last three outings.
Finally to the evening card at Newcastle where they go off six times on the all-weather, with the first race at 18:00 and the closer at 20:30.
Both the 18:30 and 19:30 feature Betfred’s Free Bet if 2nd offer and in the former, Roger Fell will be confident that 10/3 Ginato can go one better than last time out nine days ago, while an hour later, Amasova is 4/1 to score for the in form Alice Haynes stable.
