All you need on day one of the Ebor meeting including going from all the tracks

York racecourse: hosting the four-day Ebor meeting this week
1 of 1

Day one of York's Ebor meeting starts with a bang as dual Group 1 winner Poet's Word faces Coral-Eclipse hero Roaring Lion, 2,000 Guineas scorer Saxon Warrior and Irish Derby surprise Latrobe in a mouth-watering Juddmonte International.

It is a card that also features the Group 2 Great Voltigeur and the Group 3 Acomb Stakes, while there is also afternoon action from Killarney, Carlisle and Brighton. The evening fare comes from Worcester and Kempton.

Final thought 

Christophe Soumillon is one of the greatest riders on the planet and pops to York to be reunited with the lovable rogue that is Thunder Snow for their first start since running away with the Dubai World Cup. That he has only picked up two other rides on the card, Natural Scenery – a 14-1 shot for Saeed Bin Suroor in the 2m½f handicap – and 50-1 hope M C Muldoon for Peter Chapple-Hyam in the Great Voltigeur seems a gross underutilising of his incredible talents.

If Mo Salah was available for just one day there are not too many teams in the Premier League that would not give him a start...
