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

Brighton hosts one of five meetings on Monday
1 of 1

By typical Monday standards, it's a rather busy day of racing with four meetings in Britain, and the second day of the Listowel festival in Ireland.

There is some good quality sprinkled in too, with jumps cards at Newton Abbot and at Perth, both featuring Class 2 handicaps. The Kim Bailey-trained Charbel, who was last seen in the Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, makes his seasonal reappearance at the Scottish course in the Sodexo Prestige Venues And Events Killiecrankie Handicap Chase (3.45).

Brighton caters for Flat fans in the afternoon, with Chelmsford providing the only all-weather meeting of the day in the evening. The Essex track is putting on more than £86,000 in prize-money, including the £25,000 Irish Lotto At Handicap (7.15) over a mile.

At Listowel, the Listed Edmund & Josie Whelan Memorial Listowel Stakes (3.20) is the feature race on a seven-race card which has an impressive €207,000 in prize-money up for grabs.

Final thought 

As the support of Roy Rocket has proved this summer, Brighton is the sort of course that thrives on old favourites who repeatedly strut their stuff at the Sussex course. While the John Berry-trained grey is not present on Monday's card, there are still 14 previous course winners bidding for further success at the track.
