All the key going updates and market movers for today's racing
All good things come to an end and the spring heatwave appears to be entering its final day, so what better way to extend your Bank Holiday break than with a day at Brighton's unique seaside track.
The undulating Sussex course is definitely worth a visit and the same can be said of Fakenham, where the Norfolk National (3.45) takes centre stage, and Thirsk, where the other afternoon action takes place.
Ludlow, Exeter and Roscommon provide the evening entertainment while Group 2 action is on offer at Saint-Cloud, where the Prix Greffulhe (1.35), previously won by Pour Moi and Cloth Of Stars, has attracted a field of four including the promising Alhadab and Study Of Man.

Credit must go to Fakenham where the prize-money is consistently above average and today's Norfolk National is no exception with £31,800 on offer for a 0-125 handicap chase. They have rightfully been rewarded with a wide-open 13-runner field.
