What to read

Bryony Frost can't wait for her first ride in the Randox Health Grand National. Read how she got on when she schooled Milansbar over  Aintree style fences in Lambourn.

There could be problems for Britbet with Arc unhappy with RMG tracks over their deal with SIS.

What to watch

With the winter all-weather season in Britain having climaxed on Good Friday, Dundalk takes a break from the Friday night schedule after tonight.

So it's time for the final episode of Friday Night Lights for the season and here are the team's best bets.

The best of Racing Post Sport

There is plenty of coverage of the Masters and in football Cardiff host Wolverhampton Wanderers in an intriguing tussle between the Championship's top two, which Steve Davies has previewed.

Final thought 

Although the Flat turf season officially launched on March 24 there has been scarcely a meeting on turf since, thanks to the wet weather and the schedule. The last meeting was on March 31 and the next is not until Wednesday.
