THERE was some good-quality action around the tracks on Wednesday.
As usual a few stories popped up across the cards and we picked out some snippets you may have missed.
Story of the day ?
There was a heart-warming story over the sticks at Newton Abbot as Sophie Leech's 12-year-old veteran Tamarillo Grove notched up a 12th career success.
He jumped like a buck and bravely saw off Passing Call – a horse half his age – in a driving finish.
Incredibly, it was the EIGHTH time the warrior had won at the Devon track during his 67-race career. Take a bow, old boy.
Royal Ascot contender ?
1.30 Nottingham – Circus Couture
Jane Chapple-Hyam's seven-year-old was a brilliant third in last year's Royal Hunt Cup at Ascot.
And the son of Intikhab booked his ticket to the Royal meeting once again with a game win in a hot handicap on Wednesday.
He was placed in last season's Hunt Cup off a mark of 106, but he will be lower in the weights this time around so is one to watch.
One for the tracker ?
1.00 Nottingham – King Ademar
