C4 cameras set to roll at bumper Kelso meet

Channel Four television coverage of Kelso’s meeting on Saturday adds to what promises to be another thrilling afternoon’s racing, writes Hilary Mactaggart

The first race to be televised is the £25,000 handicap chase, in which Cumbrian trainer Maurice Barnes hopes Overpriced can recapture last season’s form. War Lord has done well for Phil Kirby and has had a break since winning at Sedgefield in the autumn.

Other races on a bumper card include the two-mile handicap hurdle race which has attracted the biggest entry of the day, with 30 runners including James Ewart’s impressive Ayr scorer Avidity.

Gates open at 11.30am with the first race scheduled for 1.30pm.
