Huntingdon centre stage again as we give you all you need to start the day
Does any other track manage their major fixtures like Huntingdon? It doesn't do big Saturdays, but it's great for a midweek treat and serves up another on Thursday with a competitive Listed mares' chase at 4.05.
In fairness, Thurles is pretty good at that too and it stages the Michael Purcell Memorial Hurdle at 3.00 as part of its seven-race card. The other jumping action comes from Sedgefield, where a 0-130 handicap hurdle headlines the card.
For Flat fans, there is Southwell in the afternoon, Chelmsford in the evening and Meydan in between.

The current situation between Bryan Cooper and Robbie Power would have been pretty difficult to envisage in the aftermath of the 2016 festival, when Cooper had just won the Gold Cup on Don Cossack with Power over three years without a Grade 1 win. Power's redemption is well deserved, Cooper's ostracism less so.
