All the key details on a day that could provide Royal Ascot pointers

Heartache: whose half-sister debuts in the same colours
1 of 1

Another busy schedule with six cards – three afternoon, three evening – spread across Britain and Ireland which could provide some Royal Ascot pointers.

Most notable is the reappearance of Bless Him, last year's Britannia Stakes winner, who begins his campaign in a hot-looking handicap (3.50) at Nottingham designed to tee him up for the Royal Hunt Cup.

That meeting starts with an intriguing juvenile fillies' maiden (2.20) in which Clive Cox gives a debut to a half-sister to his Queen Mary winner Heartache called Heartwarming, who is by no means the only well-related runner.

Beverley provides the other afternoon Flat action alongside jumping from Cartmel, the track's third meeting in five days. The evening schedule comes from Ripon, Warwick and Gowran Park.


Going report

Beverley (first race, 1.30)
Good to firm, good in places 

Cartmel (2.10)

Gowran Park (5.55)

5.25 Nottingham 4 Berlios 8-1 (from 12)


What to back

Dave Orton takes the helm on the tipping front for the day but despite the plethora of meetings, he has not looked beyond Beverley.

His three recommendations all come from the Humberside track.

Today's Ten Second Tip also comes from the Beverley meeting.


What to read

Oisin Murphy faces the biggest test of his short career on Saturday when he partners Roaring Lion in the Investec Derby.

He is refreshingly open as he discusses the challenge, not only of riding the Dante Stakes winner in the race, but in how he addresses criticism.


What to watch

Studying the big races at Epsom on Friday and Saturday? Monday's Postcast is essential viewing.

Maddy Playle is joined by Tom Segal as they discuss the Derby and Oaks, plus take a look back on the Irish Guineas meeting at the Curragh.


Best of Racing Post Sport

With the World Cup just around the corner we are in midst of a host of friendly matches with more scheduled tonight.

Scotland, who haven't qualified, are in South America as they rebuild under new manager Alex McLeish.

Steve Davies believes they could be in for a difficult trip as they take on Peru in their first game.

Elsewhere, Joe Champion takes a look at day four of the French Open tennis.


Final thought

It would be inadvisable to make any move in the Oaks until after the declarations emerge from 10am onwards with Magical having suffered a late injury scare and William Haggas due to rule on whether to let Sea Of Class take her chance.
