All you need to know for today's action as Davy Russell drops in at Bangor

Davy Russell: "He sent me a lovely message after I came out of hospital and I was meaning to ring him."
1 of 1

On a blank day for Irish racing, we will at least be seeing one familiar face in Davy Russell, who makes the journey to Bangor for just one ride in the bumper (4.20) on Epalo De La Thinte. 

With no previous form under rules to read, however, his chances are difficult to assess, as are the majority of the field's. 

The standout runner of the day must be The Worlds End who embarks on his first mission of a prospective novice chasing campaign at Chepstow (3.25). Tom George's seven-year-old dined at the top table over hurdles last season and could make up into a serious operator over fences.

Bangor and Chepstow's meetings are supported by Flat action at Catterick in the afternoon and all-weather racing at Wolverhampton in the evening.

What to read

With the devastating news of Leicester City Football Club and King Power Racing owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's fatal helicopter crash, we look back at the supremo's best horses of his expanding string.

After much debate over the summer months Samcro's campaign has finally been decided, with connections electing for the six-year-old to remain over hurdles for the season ahead.

What to watch

Jessica Harrington is the latest high-profile jumps trainer who has spoken to us about her string for the season ahead.

The best of Racing Post Sport

Maurizio Sarri has fared outstandingly in his brief spell as manager of Chelsea in the opening exchanges of the season and Dan Childs feels that the Blues should not be underestimated in the title hunt.

Final thought 

With Samcro likely to be heavily odds-on for the majority of his outings this season, could the 11-2 offered by Ladbrokes that he remain unbeaten all term be good value?
