THERE is something for everyone at Newbury over the next month.

Saturday, March 29 and Saturday, April 12 are the final two days of the Jump season, followed by the highlight of the Flat season - on Friday, April 18 and Saturday, April 19.

On March 29, Bangers and Beer Day, you can go along and sample some quality racing along with a range of real ales and boozy bangers' on offer in the brand new Fuller's Real Ale Bar, with a live band and a visit from the famous Fuller's dray horses.

Jumping is the name of the game on April 12 - and expect a huge entry for this late season fixture.

The main race of the day is a £25,000 Handicap Chase, and all the top local trainers and jockeys will be in action for this hefty purse.

It has been a great Jump season, and Newbury racegoers have been lucky to witness some fantastic performances - dual winner Denman, Tango Royal, Natal, Master Minded and Wingman to name just a few.

Not only are officials anticipating great racing on April 12, but it is also Countryside Love Day, which offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy a romantic day out or - if you're single - you can have a laugh and take part in some speed dating.

The 2008 Flat season gets underway with an action-packed two-day fixture on Friday, April 18 and Saturday, April 19.

The corresponding meeting last year proved a hotbed of talent, with a vast array of future big-race winners among those on show.

Taking centre stage on the opening day of the season last year were Winker Watson and Light Shift, both of whom were to go on to distinguish themselves at the highest level.

Since his success at Newbury, Winker Watson has remained unbeaten in three races, winning the Norfolk Stakes and July Stakes, and has a well-deserved, prominent position in the ante-post betting for both the English and Irish 2000 Guineas betting.

Light Shift, winner of a competitive ten furlong conditions event at Newbury, notched another success at Chester before taking The Oaks at Epsom, providing legendary trainer Henry Cecil with an amazing 22nd classic victory Hot favourite for the Lane's End Greenham, Dutch Art, was unable to fend off the challenge of Major Cadeaux.

Frustratingly for his connections, he would continue to go close in exalted company, being placed in the 2000 Guineas, July Cup and Prix Maurice Du Gheest at Deauville.

Behind him at Newbury was stablemate Tariq, who went on to record impressive victories at both Royal Ascot and Glorious Goodwood.

The Dubai Duty Free Stakes was fought out by Majestic Roi and Indian Ink.

Although the classics would evade them, both became impressive Group 1 winners within months.

It just goes to prove that Newbury Racecourse is the place to be for great entertainment, all year round.
