Some will be doing extra homework for Royal Ascot’s big kick-off on Tuesday, while others prefer to enjoy the low-key nature of Monday’s six race meetings in the UK and Ireland.
All-weather racing at Lingfield (1.00-4.20pm) gets things started alongside Carlisle (1.25-5.20) and Gowran Park (1.45-5.30) on an afternoon dominated by Flat racing. Later on, jumps from Kilbeggan (4.40-8.10) are the forerunner to evening cards at Windsor (5.25-8.30) and Nottingham (5.50-8.50).
Monday’s nap is a sprinter in useful form for trainer Ron Harris and he may well see further improvement tackling six furlongs at Windsor this evening.
