Racing returns

Tony McCoy has broken a bone in his lower back and is likely to be out of action for at least six weeks. His agent says he aims to be back in time for the Cheltenham Festival which starts on Tuesday March 11th.

Carruthers won the Leamington Novices' Hurdle at Warwick yesterday in convincing style but we should note Peter Bowen's report today that stable star Souffleur, who finished a well beaten third, coughed afterwards.

Hill's have signed up to TurfTV. By my reckoning, of the big bookmakers, only Fred Done has yet to subscribe to the service.

Until the end of January Timeform are making one card per day available to download free of charge. As always, you're required to fill in your personal details; if you sign up, don't forget to tick the appropriate box indicating you don't want to receive their literature which, I am sure, will contain several pictures of the smiling Jim McGrath.
