Huge Day For Jumps Racing Both In Ireland And The UK

A number of contests with spring festival implications take place.

Champion amateur jockey Patrick Mullins rides Chacun Pour Soi, the highest rated jumps horse in training, in the Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown today. 

He is joined by his Irish weigh room colleague Rachael Blackmore on the Henry de Bromhead-trained Captain Guinness as they take on the best English-trained best two-mile chasers in the famous race.

The Tingle Creek Chase goes off at 2:25pm

Meanwhile, Navan host the €100,000 Bective Stud Handicap Hurdle, the most valuable race at the County Meath track this year. 

The Paul Nolan-trained Coventry is certainly one to watch as he steps up to this distance for the first time.

The first of eight races goes to post at 11:30am
