Newcastle hosts a busy jumps card on Thursday, with champion jockey Brian Hughes in action on Sky Sports Racing, while there is a Listed contest in France featuring a Sir Michael Stoute runner.
The feature event on the afternoon, the Ultimate Jumps Guide On attheraces.com/jumps Handicap Chase (1.40), looks a trappy one where several look to hold a chance.
James Ewert introduces French recruit Heroique De Maulde with Hughes in the plate. A dual chase winner last autumn, he has a 12-month absence to overcome on debut for new connections.
James Moffatt's Jelski seeks a first win over fences at the third attempt but is a useful sort having won four times over the smaller obstacles.
Others to note include Creative Control (Donald McCain) and Hidden Commander (Stuart Coltherd). The latter is three from six over fences but has lost his way of late.
Lingfield Park plays host to dual Listed action on Saturday, the Churchill Stakes and the Golden Rose, all live on Sky Sports Racing from 12.15pm
Hughes links up with trainer Micky Hammond for his final ride of the day, the returning Shighness.
She proved more than useful when taking a Wetherby bumper at the start of last season and followed that up over hurdles at the same track in March.
Rae Des Champs arrives in good form having been successful at Musselburgh in March and finishing runner-up when last seen at Kelso and will be fancied for Rose Dobbin and Craig Nichol.
Rogel Fell's Spantik has been mixing it between the Flat and Jumps over a busy summer period so should be fully fit for this task.
There is an interesting Listed contest in France, the Du Grand Camp Stakes (1.42), where Sir Michael Stoute sends over Qatar Racing filly Swoon.
Cieren Fallon will ride the daughter of Frankel as she steps up in class having finished second in handicap company at Newmarket last month.
Francis-Henri Graffard's Zanndabad looks for a hat-trick and Vert Liberte seeks a four-timer.
