STAY in the know with our racing report card as we look back at the pick of the day’s action.
We have pinpointed star performer, a gambled landed at Wincanton and a horse for the tracker this Wednesday.
3.15 Musselburgh – Call The Cops
He is certainly not the force of old, but it was good to see this classy customer get his head back in front.
The former Nicky Henderson-trained 10-year-old, who is now with Ben Haslam, had not tasted success since landing the 2015 Pertemps Final at the Cheltenham Festival.
He had slipped a mile down the weights but showed a gritty attitude to win by a head at odds of 7-2.

1.20 Wincanton – Old Rascals
Emma Lavelle and Leighton Aspell teamed up to land a touch at Wincanton.
Old Rascals was pulled up when last seen 70 days ago, but he returned to action having undergone a wind op.
Having been available at 11-1 this morning, he was sent off the 4-1 second favourite and duly sauntered home by 14 lengths, much to the delight of the Wincanton faithful.

One for the tracker
4.40 Southwell – Stay Forever
Andrew Balding’s lightly-raced filly caught the eye on the Fibresand.
The daughter of Harbour Watch was sent off the well-backed 2-1 favourite in the 1m novice stakes and finished second to a well-ridden front-runner.
The pair pulled 19 lengths clear of the remainder of the field, so she’s one to note when returned to handicaps.
