There's lots for kids to do at Andoversford, starting with the racing.

Prefacing our Point-to-Point races, we're introducing up to three pony races for children aged 9-16. This is a great opportunity for children of all ages to be inspired by their contemporaries already learning how to become jockeys. The leading lights among pony racing jockeys have subsequently made careers in the real thing, like champion Flat apprentice of 2015 Tom Marquand. 

For younger children, there's a bouncy castle, Punch & Judy thanks to Rendcomb College, and dog agility classes all day to entertain. Plenty of opportunities here to test your own dog too. 

There's also a parade of hounds during the afternoon, a great opportunity to come and see the Cotswold Foxhounds, who are all very friendly!

"Quality will out" is a watchword for racing at Aintree nowadays, where the era of long-priced unfancied horses has largely been put to bed by changes to race conditions and the shape of the fences. And perhaps the racing over the National fences is better for that.  That quality was proven yesterday when 3/1 favourite It's On The Line, trained by Emmet Mullins, and ridden by Derek O'Connor,...

Time Leader and Spyglass offer the best chance of continued home-grown success on the Randox Foxhunter Chase, the second of the three "classics" of the amateur season tomorrow at Aintree.  Twenty-two runners line up for the thrill of a lifetime - a circuit of Aintree's Grand National fences, but rarely nowadays, the ground will be soft or heavy, which always throws up some imponderables. Ti...

The misery continues for fixture secretaries in the Three Counties, following the opening of the heavens again. Fixtures at Maisemore on April 13 - already rescheduled from te end of March - and Woodford for the Berkeley Races, have been cancelled and will not be rescheduled.  A season to forget between the flags. Perhaps Latenightpass and Sine Nomine can shed some sunlight on the Point-to-P...
