20:53 That's it from Leicester, where a reasonable crowd viewed some average racing but they didn't seem that bothered by the quality.
It's back to National Hunt action tomorrow when we shall be at Towcester, until then a very good evening.
20:46 A great finish to our final race, run in ever fading light. Approaching a furlong out it looked as though the front running Countrywide Flame and Ugo were going to battle out the finish as their rivals seemed to be treading water.
Then the favourite Caravan Rolls On, settled mid-division, accelerated to open a healthy lead, chased by May Contain Nuts, although the latter was only able to get within two lengths by the time they reached the post.
It was very close for third spot, 1 1/4 lengths behind the front pair, with the running on Diplomasi (who was very tardy at the start) edging out Ugo by a short head.
Countrywide Flame came home fifth.
20:17 Amazing Amoray put this race to bed when hitting the front a furlong from home and came home unopposed, having been settled behind the leaders in the early stages.
Formal Demand who briefly held the lead before Amazing Amoray's surge, came home 3 3/4 lengths behind in second spot with Logans Legend a further 2 1/2 back in third.
The one to take out of the contest is debutant Izzy The Ozzy (5th) running on very well late on.
20:00 race five is the ladbrokes.com Sartorius Maiden Stakes over six furlongs, with 12 due to go to post.
Logans Legend and Crabbies Bay were both lively in the parade ring. Mixed Emotions and Tigerbill were both pulling slightly.
19:43 the ladbrokes.com G D Giles Handicap, a 1m 2f contest saw eight competing for the first prize of £3,238 and we saw the best finish of the evening.
Aspro Marvo and Bollin Dolly shared the running for most of the contest, until Aspro Marvo ran out of gas two out.
This coincided with a run from Understory, who briefly shared the running with Bollin Dolly.
Inside the final half furlong the cavalry charge began with Effigy and Wiggy Smith both running on.
It was a good finish with Effigy getting the verdict by half a length with Wiggy Smith second and Bollin Dolly third.
19:14 An easy victory for the old boy and favourite Fremen, settled in second behind initially, behind Lady Florence, before hitting the front four furlongs out.
The iffy Fault was on his quarters about two out but the favourite was playing games and when asked to pull clear the race was over as a contest and he came home an eased 3 1/4 lengths clear.
Fault did hold on for second with Kenswick taking third.
19:01 There is a jazz band playing between races and they just played I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles - a special request for John Hunt, a Hammers fan.
Onto the round course for our next contest, the ladbrokes.com James Ward Selling Stakes over a mile with 12 due to face the starter.
Lady Florence and Just Five were both swishing their tails. Unlimited was pulling and Jasmin Rai was jig-jogging around. The old boy (and favourite) Fremen was taking the preliminaries in his stride.
18:45 A scrappy race with a silent "s". The favourite Sea Odyssey ran no sort of race doing the form of last weeks Chester Race look suspect.
The finish was battled out by Arnold Lane and Red Aggressor, with the former getting home 1 1/4 lengths clear, although the proximity of Red Aggressor makes the form of this contest equally suspect.
Shere Khan came home third and was perhaps unlucky in that he somehow managed to meet trouble in running.
18:26 Race two is over the minimum distance of five furlongs, as nine go to post for the British Stallion Studs EBF ladbrokes.com Maiden Stakes.
Red Aggressor was living up to his name an was really fighting his handler, which made Pius Parker's pulling look docile. Arnold Lane was getting a little warm. Shere Khan looked nice but Crowning Star was the paddock pick.
18:15 A good little handicap in which the hard pulling May's Boy and Red Marling set the pace, with Shostakovich with them.
The favourite Lightning Cloud led the chasing group until making his move approaching a furlong out. However as soon as he made his move City Legend went with him and it looked as though there was going to be a battle, indeed a three way battle looked to be in prospect as My So Max also made progress. Half a furlong out Lightning Cloud eased clear to record a length victory.
18:05 My Son Max was keen to post, May's Boy took a strong hold and Red Marling had to be restrained.
17:55 The opening contest is the ladbrokes.com John Ferneley Handicap, with seven due to compete in the 7f contest.
Not a particularly impressive bunch in the parade ring. May's Boy was pulling quite hard, My Son Max was pulling. Shostakovich was beginning to get a little warm, having said that it is a bit muggy here.
17:37 Cancel the earlier weather update, now grey and overcast at Leicester and the breeze is picking up
16:45 I have just walked the final couple of furlongs and must admit I struggled to find any good patches. The full width of the track is being used tonight and there is a decent covering of grass which will take the sting out of the ground.
There is a breeze behind the runners in the home straight but not that significant.
16:32 Good afternoon from a sunny Leicester, there are now six non-runners.
14:26 The non-runner count is now five.
