All you need to start your day including going from all the tracks
On a big day for football in England, it is probably fortunate that Scotland and Wales are doing more than their share of the heavy lifting on this sunny Tuesday.
Hamilton will team up with Brighton to provide the afternoon action, then while England is at a standstill in the evening Chepstow combines with Stratford.
Chepstow has an Arab race half an hour before the first official contest, while in France there is Group 3 action for two-year-olds at Deauville (1.20) featuring runners for Archie Watson, Karl Burke and Wesley Ward.
Brighton (first race at: 2.00)

The winner of that match will play either Sweden or Switzerland. We've previewed that, too.
They're digging wells at Wexford and hoping to avoid hard ground at Bath. There is another another two weeks of this to come, too, if forecasts are to be believed. Few will deserve a pint of something cold while watching the climactic rounds of the World Cup more than racecourse ground staff.
