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

Finish of the Brighton Mile won by Pastoral Player
1 of 1

Brighton's festival of racing continues on Thursday, with the feature Brighton Challenge (3.30) giving horses rated up to 82 the opportunity to race for a first prize of all but £12,700.

That card is backed up by afternoon action from Yarmouth and Haydock, the latter providing a Class 2 fillies' handicap (4.10) which, at least in terms of ratings, trumps the Challenge.

The evening action comes from Newcastle, Sandown, Leopardstown and Sligo.

What to read

It was a milestone night for jockey Jamie Spencer at Yarmouth last night.

That meeting nearly did not finish, after a fire in the area.

What to watch

The best of Racing Post Sport

The final golf major of the year, the US PGA at Bellervie, starts today. Read Steve Palmer's outright selections.

There's also a rare burst of optimism from Bruce Millington ahead of the Premier League season.

Final thought 

The outside prospect of a tooth-and-nail fight for the trainers' title throws new light on the changes made to the championship in 2016. With earnings now counted until December 31, the idea of, say, Sir Michael Stoute and John Gosden throwing their last darts at all-weather meetings in the days after the King George strikes as a surreal denouement.
