All you need to know for today's racing from Hamilton to Plumpton

Uttoxeter, one of three tracks in Britain racing today
1 of 1

Hamilton flies the flag for Flat racing today and the Scottish course has attracted runners from not only Newmarket but even more from Ireland.

Uttoxeter and Plumpton provide the jumps action in Britain with Navan almost matching those two in number of runners on its eight-race card.

It's not too late for Londoners and East Anglians to get to the second day of Newmarket's open weekend if they hurry with activities going on through the day after the stables open in the morning (closing 12.30).
