THE horses are racing again at Great Yarmouth Racecourse on Monday afternoon. After last week's high quality start, it's more of the same next week.

The Lindley Catering (Official Racecourse Caterers) Handicap is one of the more valuable races that will be run this season.

Overall, across the seven races there's just under £50,000 in prize-money on offer.

As the 2008 season got under way last Friday evening, it didn't take long for Hingham racehorse trainer Christine Dunnett to record her first victory.

She told punters that Polar Force was her best chance of a winner, and he obliged at odds of 17-2 in the Cliff Hotel for Fine Dining Handicap.

We're delighted when Christine sends out winners, and our visitors like it too. Cheering on a local horse is always good and creates a lot of interest.

Some good riders were at the racecourse. They included champion jockey Seb Sanders who teamed up successfully with Newmarket trainer Mick Quinn to win the opening race on Dragon Flame.

The top rider completed a double on the evening when he won the Firstbet 0800 230 0800 Tele-Betting Handicap on 3-1 chance Shogun Prince.

The first race on Monday, April 28 is due off at 2pm. Admission: Premier enclosure £19; grandstand and paddock £12. Online booking and group discounts available. Accompanied children aged under-16 admitted free. More information at www.greatyarmouth-racecourse.co.uk
