Brian Hughes tends to do particularly well at Sedgefield and has plenty of good chances this afternoon to keep up that record, live on Sky Sports Racing.
Thermusa looks the best chance for Hughes in the Stanley & Lillian Thompson Memorial Mares' Novices' Hurdle (2:55), taking on five rivals for the Ruth Jefferson team.
She is already a point winner and also won a maiden over this course and distance last month, so is likely to take a bit of beating.
Bangor winner Sweet Auburn is the chief rival for Donald McCain, while Anti Bridgie finished second in a point for the Oliver Greenall and Josh Guerreiro team.

The At The Races App Form Study Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle (12:42) could well be at the mercy of the in-form Misty Mani, who is going for a fourth victory in a row for the Peter Niven team.
The seven-year-old has won at Perth as well as claiming two victories at Market Rasen - Tom Midgley takes the ride.
Of the others, Silkstone was second here on his last start for Danny Brooke, while the consistent Lord Caprio goes again for the Ben Haslam team.
