Beach fixture at Laytown provides unique twist to day's sport

Stand on the strand: Laytown's beach card offers something different today
1 of 1

It is often said, but there really is something for everyone today. If it is not the seaside allure of Laytown, it could be the thrills and spills of the jumpers at Hexham or the quality and charm of Goodwood. 

The weekend action looks colossal with Irish Champions Weekend on the horizon, but there is plenty to get stuck into beforehand, with Hamilton also staging an eight-race card and evening action on the all-weather at Kempton.

What's on today

It's the return of Laytown. The only beach meeting in the British Isles produced – or failed to produce, whichever way you look at it – Supreme Novices' Hurdle winner Labaik last season. 

Well-known syndicate the Melbourne 10 have again targeted the meeting and have a runner in every race.

There is the latest load of well-bred talent at Goodwood in two maidens and a novice stakes, plus promising novice Gettysburg Address bids to record a second win over hurdles at Hexham.

Final thought 

It is probably said every year on this exact day, but a British answer to Laytown would be welcome and surely very popular. But where might it be staged? Answers on a postcard, please.
