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

Yulong Gold Fairy: out to land the Group 3 feature
1 of 1

Can you hear it? That is the Thursday thrum, the faint but unmistakable build up to the weekend's racing, manifested in some better action than earlier in the week.

Admittedly, Ireland is doing the heavy lifting. The feature race at Tipperary in the evening is the Group 3 Fairy Bridge Stakes (5.55), named in honour of a supremely important broodmare. Not only is she guaranteed stud book immortality through her son Sadler's Wells, she is also the dam of Fairy Bridge (sire of Oath and Flabrav) and Perugino (sire of the no-less-popular The Tatling).

In Britain, Carlisle, Musselburgh and Chelmsford make up the afternoon diet. Jumps cards at Sedgefield and Fontwell act alongside the meetings at Fairyhouse (and further jumps at Bellewstown) in the evening.

It is the Made In Denmark this week on the European Tour. Check out our best bets

It is also day four of the US Open. We have previewed the best of the day's action at Flushing Meadows.

Final thought 

Declarations for the Solario Stakes will be revealed later this morning. On balance its Group 3 status probably sits about right, but like a couple of similarly graded juvenile races (looking at you, Tyros Stakes) it has had some of the biggest names on its roll of honour: Masar, Kingman, Raven's Pass and even Oh So Sharp if you go further back.
