HEXHAM Racecourse will host its second raceday of the season on Monday. 

The Easter Raceday is billed as a fascinating day out for children and their families during the school holidays. 

The going is soft, good to soft in places, for an event which is set to draw the crowds to the prestigious venue. 

It will follow the season opening Cheltenham Festival Raceday, which attracted more than 1,100 people. 

Gates will open at 12.10pm. The first race will be at 2.10pm, and last at 5.10pm.
