All the latest news and updated going reports for today's racing

Racing takes place at Goodwood on Wednesday
1 of 1

It's to concentrate on today's racing with Newmarket's sweet box of a three-day meeting and the two days at Chantilly at arm's reach.

There is a Listed race, the Foundation Stakes at Goodwood, among a hotbed of Class 5 and 6 races. It has tempted a reticent Meydan winner out with Godolphin's Promising Run, not seen for 207 days, taking on Group 3 Rose of Lancaster winner Frankuus, who seems to love Haydock and Chantilly more than anywhere else but has to settle for a halfway house geographically.

Scotland has been starved of racing if not rain so fingers crossed Perth, even though it is jump racing not the lost Flat fixtures of Ayr and Hamilton, can bring some sunshine north of the border.

If all else fails there is trusty old Kempton to take us into the dark.

What to watch

Racing Post Weekender hits the news stands so here is a flavour of this week's straight-talking columns and top tips. 

The best of Racing Post Sport

Chelsea, Manchester United and Celtic are far from home in the lastest round of Champions League matches, but Dan Childs and Steve Davies have their top bets for the games.

James Milton is going big on the latest cricket one-day international between England and West Indies.

The British Masters starts in Newcastle on Thursday so our golf correspondent and punter Steve Palmer gets into the swing.

Final thought 

It is all down to Billesdon Brook to uphold family honour at Goodwood today. Unfortunately, her sister Billesdon Bess is a non-runner at the same meeting.
