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

There are two Listed contests at Ayr on Friday
1 of 1

Ayr's three-day Gold Cup meeting continues with the highlights the Listed Harry Rosebery Stakes (3.05) and Fillies' Sprint Stakes (3.35), worth a collective £100,000. 

They are followed by the Listed Dubai Duty Free Cup Stakes (3.55) over seven furlongs at Newbury, where last year's winning jockey Jim Crowley partners Mankib for William Haggas. 

And there are also jumps meetings at Newton Abbot and Ballinrobe, with evening action at Dundalk and Newcastle.
