Newcastle: 2.55 and 3.30pm. Presenters: Nick Luck and Rishi Persad.
Nick Luck introduces a cracking day's jumps racing, the highlight being the Grade One Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown with ú150,000 to the winner of this great two-mile chase, won twice this century by Moscow Flyer and Kauto Star, and more recently by the now retired Sprinter Sacre.

Rishi Persad and the Channel 4 Racing team are at Ascot for the traditional pre-Christmas fixture that combines festive fun with top quality jumps racing. The ú100,000 Long Walk Hurdle was won last year by superstar Thistlecrack on his way to domination of the long distance hurdling division. Then, to round off events, comes the ú150,000 Wessex Youth Trust Hurdle, one of the most competitive handicaps of the season. Ascot: 1.50, 2.25, 3.00 and 3.35pm. Haydock Park: 2.05 and 2.40pm. Presenter: Rishi Persad.
Nick Luck and the Channel 4 Racing team are at Kempton Park for a fabulous Boxing Day's racing, featuring the King George VI Chase. First run in 1937, the Chase is now established as one of the great races of the season. Today, 2015's champion Cue Card looks to add the prize to last month's Betfair Chase, and so move a step closer to the ú1 million bonus he could win with a triumph in the Gold Cup. He may not have it all his own way, however, as leading the opposition is 2015 Gold Cup winner Coneygree, who chased him home at Haydock in a classic contest. Kempton Park: 1.30, 2.05, 2.40 and 3.15pm. Wetherby: 1.45pm. Presenters: Nick Luck and Rishi Persad.
Nick Luck is at Kempton, and Alice Plunkett at Chepstow to introduce the final day of Channel 4 Racing. The big race of the day is the Welsh National in which the Kerry Lee trained Mountainous is looking to make history by landing the contest for an unprecedented third time. At Kempton, the highlight is the Desert Orchid Chase named after the remarkable grey, who was so popular and successful at the South London track. Also, after 30 years of Channel 4 Racing, Nick and the team look back on their favourite moments and some of the great names, equine and human, that have graced the sport during that time. Kempton Park: 1.45, 2.20 and 3.30pm. Chepstow: 1.25, 2.00, 2.40 and 3.15pm. Presenters: Nick Luck and Alice Plunkett.
