With five midweek cards taking place, there's no shortage of racing action on Wednesday.

Newmarket gets things underway on the Flat, alongside Gowran Park, while the jumps fare comes from Hereford and Fontwell. Later on, there is all-weather racing at Kempton.

Wednesday's horse racing predictions

14:25 Hereford

Ziggy Rose to win and each-way - BET NOW

The Paul Nicholls/Harry Cobden alliance has been in sparkling form of late and a big showing is likely from the returning Young Buck in the famous Big Buck's silks - but he will do well to spot 7lb to the mare Ziggy Rose in this race.

Noel Williams' charge was a little unfortunate not to get on the scoresheet over timber last season, the daughter of Fame And Glory settling for second-best four times in her five starts.

Her final effort at Doncaster (3m½f, heavy) saw her pushing the progressive winner Cill Anna every inch of the way and a replication of that sort of form surely makes her hard to stop now.

She showed up well on her seasonal return at Ludlow last year and Paddy Brennan - who partnered her for the first time in the Doncaster run - is a man riding with lots of confidence at the moment.  

15:20 Newmarket

Zezenia to win and each-way - BET NOW

Soft ground is forecast at Headquarters and that ought to play into the hands of Roger Varian's Oasis Dream filly Zezenia. She's has won both previous starts when racing with 'soft' in the going description and will relish these conditions. 

She put up a personal best on her penultimate start at Salisbury (1m, good to soft), when scoring off a mark of 80, and looks capable of competing in this higher grade from this perch.

Her subsequent Nottingham run is readily forgiven as Ray Dawson reported the saddle to have slipped before she was eased home. Andrea Atzeni is back on board now and they should have a good shout in what is a competitive Fillies' Handicap.

We've likely not see the best of Sunset Kiss or Sun Bear in the Lady Bamford colours, with the pair respected alongside previous course winner Lorton. 

19:15 Kempton

Clinician to win and each-way - BET NOW

The hat-trick-chasing Serenading is respected after successive wins at Newcastle over this distance but Sir Michael Stoute plays a strong hand here with a pair of Kingman fillies in Areehaa and Clinician.

The former has not finished out of the first two in four starts and won at Chelmsford in September. Jim Crowley's mount is in the mix but it is Ryan Moore and Clinician that appeals most.

The Cheveley Park-owned runner won with plenty up her sleeve at Wolverhampton, despite having to wait what seemed like an age to get some daylight in which to make her challenge in the home straight after being caught on the running rail. She's up 5lb for that win but looks one to remain onside with for now.
