All you need to know about a classy Sunday's racing around Europe

Longchamp which hosts the feature Prix du Moulin de Longchamp, named after its iconic windmill pictured without its sails this year
1 of 1

There is a little bit of everything for everyone today with two Flat meetings and two jump meetings in Europe following the earlier action in the Far East.

Longchamp hosts the day's feature in the Prix du Moulin de Longchamp (3.15), which gives Oisin Murphy another chance to add to his stupendous Group 1 haul this year as he teams up with his Sussex Stakes winner Lightning Spear.

They again face their Goodwood victim Expert Eye but it is Recoletos, who chased home Alpha Centauri in the Marois at Deauville, who is slated as favourite.

York starts the day's action and features 2016 July Cup winner Limato continuing his rehabilitation in a second Listed sprint that is the Ryedale House Garrowby Stakes (2.55)

Fontwell and Listowel host the two jumps meetings with Fontwell featuring a strong Dan Skelton team of six, although three are in an interesting juvenile hurdle at 2.30.
