All eyes on the future at Newmarket plus the latest going and betting news

Desert Skyline: won on the Newmarket card last year
1 of 1

There is a plethora of two-year-old racing today when Newmarket stages an eight-race card, seven of which are restricted to juveniles.

As a guide to the future the races have not proved too informative, although Desert Skyline, winner of the Doncaster Cup last month, won the closing nursery 12 months ago.

Newmarket stages one of five meetings in Britain and Ireland. Navan and the Kempton evening card complete the Flat offering, while there is jumping at at Sedgefield and Worcester, where there are some interesting runners in the Fixed Brush Hurdle Final.

Final thought 

Keep checking on the website and social media from noon when the entries will be released for the Breeders' Cup, run for the first time at Del Mar, California, at the end of next week.

It will be intriguing to see which of Aidan O'Brien's team will make the trip and whether he is prepared to put anything up against Arrogate and Gun Runner on the dirt in the Classic.
