All you need to start your day as Windsor's card passes an inspection

Leopardstown: attracting a wide mix of racegoers, says Keogh

Here we go then. A new week and a new focus with the Grand National done and dusted and the Flat season bursting into life.

A sure sign of that is the arrival of Windsor, which hosts an afternoon meeting to start the week, having passed an inspection. Soon enough the racecourse will be taking up its natural place of providing us with Monday evening entertainment.

What to read

Jockey Danny Cook was "reminded of his responsibilities not to get involved" by stewards at Aintree on Saturday when waving runners around a bypassed fence in the Grand National. Here he has his say.

With the Flat season kicking off properly this week, there was an unfortunate update on the Classic participation of Clemmie and Amedeo Modigliani.

Also, Alastair Down reflects on the Grand National triumph of "a little bouncing ball of indomitability". (Members' Club)

What to watch

It was another memorable Grand National day at Aintree. Relive the day with our special RPTV highlights package...

There are more Racing Post Stable Tours to look forward to this week as well. However, you can get a sneak peek into Hugo Palmer's yard before then with this update from the trainer...

The best of Racing Post Sport

Manchester City are Premier League champions. Mark Langdon looks back over how they did it here.

RP Sport editor Phil Agius assesses the state of the F1 world title after race three of the season in China on Sunday.

Final thought 

Aidan O'Brien goes through his formidable team for 2018 in his Racing Post Stable Tour today. Can he dominate the Flat season the way he did last season? Looking at the quality of his stable, it is going to be tough to stop him and the Coolmore partners once again.
