All about an Irish touch to Monday's racing and the latest going news

Robbie Power: on his travels to Britain again on Monday
1 of 1

Anyone having trouble keeping up with the jockey jetting across the Irish Sea?

While Ryanair or other leading carriers probably know the answer, can you place where David Mullins, Robbie Power and Barry Geraghty are today when there is just Ludlow and Kempton racing after rain washed away Ayr's meeting?

Ludlow-bound Robbie Power rides two for the Potts family and picks up a bonus on Leg Lock Luke, all for Colin Tizzard.

Down at Kempton, David Mullins links up again with Nicky Henderson, while Geraghty dons the colours of his retainer JP McManus to ride the dual Grade 1-winning mare Jer's Girl in the feature Listed hurdle.

Final thought 

Nicky Henderson has an unbelievable record at Kempton and has five runners there today bidding to improve on his 225 winners from 882 runners at the track (26 per cent) with more than 50 per cent of his runners finishing in the first three. Punters who have followed him religiously over the years have banked over £75 for every pound invested.
