What to back

Adam Maidment likes the look of a runner at Newbury this afternoon.


What to read

An exciting clash awaits as Accidental Agent takes on Alpha Centauri in the Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard Prix Jacques le Marois on Sunday.

Mark Johnston reflected on the impressive performance of Dark Vision in the Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood last week. He has been watching the replay on loop.


What to watch

RPTV visited David Menuisier's stables in Sussex to meet star Thundering Blue among others . . .


The best of Racing Post Sport

The Championship action continues as big spenders Nottingham Forest take on West Brom and Middlesbrough face Sheffield United.

It's approaching crunch time in the Vitality Blast and here are the best bets for the two matches this evening.


Final thought 

The Dixon brothers, of Racing UK and Timeform fame, are some of the shrewdest judges around and continue to do fantastically well as owners under the name of The Horse Watchers. One of their latest recruits, Reveleon (7.25), makes his debut for Mick Appleby at Nottingham this evening and is worth noting.
