All you need to know on the sport's richest day at Meydan

Expect literal fireworks at Meydan on World Cup night
1 of 1

Following an excellent All-Weather Championships Finals Day card at Lingfield on Good Friday it is relatively quiet fare in Britain this afternoon. However, it is anything but quiet in Dubai, with the $10 million Dubai World Cup headlining a sensational card at Meydan.

You don't have to be a devotee to dirt racing to recognise some of the stars of the show, with popular stayer Big Orange among those in action in the Dubai Gold Cup - a 2m race on turf - while exciting sprinter Blue Point aims to blaze a trail in the 6f Al Quoz Sprint.

Aidan O'Brien's team is spearheaded by Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf winner Mendelssohn, who makes his debut on dirt in the UAE Derby.

Over in Britain, Musselburgh and Kempton stage competitive Flat cards, with the Queen's Cup and Rosebery appealing to those who love unravelling a tricky handicap. There's also competitive action over jumps as Haydock stages the finals of the Challenger Series.

What to back

Have the lot: here is our bumper Postcast, covering all the Easter weekend action:

 


What to read

There was a satisfactory denouement to one of the winter's most unlikely stories following yesterday's conclusion of the all-weather season.

We also look back on a fairytale of a recent Irish Grand National.


What to watch

It was Lambourn and Middleham open day yesterday, and there was an update on a Guineas filly.

Lambourn's day was in effect Nicky Henderson's, his yard being the only one to open as a result of adverse weather. But it's not a bad cop when you get to see the Gold Cup runner-up.


The best of Racing Post Sport

It's a big weekend of football, with Everton-Man City among the feature matches this evening on BT Sport.

There's also a heavyweight contest in the literal sense in Cardiff this evening, as Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker fight for the unification of the heavyweight belts. Dan Williams has the preview.


Final thought 

The British offering today, mostly on fledgling cards, is widely acknowledged to be quiet by Saturday standards. With Lingfield and Meydan either side, it feels right this year, plus it is absolutely no bad thing to give the continually underrated programme at Musselburgh another day of good exposure. But don't bet against some dissenting voices when the calendar does not fall so kindly.
