All you need to know to start your day including going from the tracks

Salisbury: this evening's meeting has been lost following an infestation of chafer grubs
1 of 1

There is a sedate feel to racing in Britain in the build-up to Doncaster's St Leger meeting but there are plenty of smaller-scale contests for punters to get their teeth into.

Catterick and Leicester provide the afternoon's Flat action but the Listowel festival is in full swing and, alongside Worcester, provides jumps fans with plenty to enjoy. 

One-time Commonwealth Cup fancy Equilateral takes a significant step down in grade at Leicester (3.45) and connections will be hoping the colt, who also holds an entry for the Flying Five this weekend, can get back to winning ways.

Salisbury had been scheduled to provide the evening's entertainment, but the meeting was cancelled on Tuesday morning after becoming the latest to fall foul of an infestation of chafer grubs.

With top-class action this week at Doncaster, Longchamp and the Curragh, it's safe to say there is plenty more life in the Flat season yet. That's not even mentioning the Arc and Champions Day.
