ITV Racing is back on our screens again today with some brilliant action from Musselburgh and Tramore.
But Exeter – where temperatures plunged below freezing – and Cheltenham – where the track is waterlogged – have both been abandoned.
The racing gets underway at 1pm on ITV.

SunSport tipster Templegate has been through all the cards and brings you his top picks for the telly action today.
ACCOMPLICE took a big step forward when second at Wincanton last time and has more to offer.
That was just his second spin over timber for in-form Paul Nicholls who sends him a long way north.
Native Fighter went well in a higher class at Doncaster last time after winning at Perth.
This trip suits and he’s a threat, while Sebastopol needed his comeback and can figure for in-form Tom Lacey.
MIRANDA had more in hand when winning at Ludlow last time than the half-length official margin.
She pulled herself up when in the clear and can give top amateur Angus Cheleda yet another win.
Raymond made it three wins in a row here last time when scoring comfortably. He is effectively 29lb higher in the weights today as his claiming rider is not on board but there’s a lot more to come at a track he likes.
Proschema lost a shoe when pulling up when fancied for the red-hot Greatwood Hurdle at Cheltenham after a good comeback second at Wetherby.
COOL MIX has been in cracking form this season with a win at Wetherby followed by two placed efforts. He was third in this race 12 months ago and hit the frame in Listed company at Newcastle last month. He has plenty of stamina and decent ground suits.
Return Ticket was an easy winner here last time and has every chance in this higher grade.
Romain De Senam isn’t won for a while but is coming down the weights and likes this trip.
Schiehallion Munro is on the upgrade for Micky Hammond and is another to consider along with old favourite Garde La Victoire and local hope Get Out The Gate.
Like the Cheltenham Gold Cup, AL BOUM PHOTO has won this race for the past two years and should be much too good again.
The testing ground won’t be an issue and the Mullins horses are flying.
Acapella Bourgeois can beat the other Closutton hope Brahma Bull into the forecast spot.
Templegate also has a pick in all the other races taking place in the UK today. Read on below to bag yourself a winner.
Won by 26 lengths here on hurdles debut last time.
Showed promise when second at Wincanton latest.
Value for further than half-length winning margin last time.
2.30 Eagle Ridge
Impressive win here 11 days ago and looks hard to beat again.
3.05 Cool Mix
Another good effort last time and the handicapper has left his mark alone.
3.35 Whiskey Lullaby
Going well at novice level and cheekpieces on for handicap debut.
12.05 Thrill Seeker
Good win at Wolver last time and has much more to come.
12.40 Compass Point NAP
Back at his ideal track from fair 4lb higher than last win.
1.15 Ayr Harbour
Consistent and won well on last visit to this track.
Just beaten here latest and 5lb claimer takes over today.
Can make it four wins from past five runs around here.
3.00 Silent Queen
Has plenty of placed efforts and this is a good chance to win.
3.30 Mr Carbonator
Loves it here and another good second last time out.
