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

With the Aidan O'Brien team evidently fit and firing on all cylinders after problems earlier in the season, the most interesting action on Tuesday may come from Naas where the master Ballydoyle trainer fields plenty of unexposed two-year-olds.

Dunkirk Harbour and Antilles did not show a great deal in their debut runs, but it seems noteworthy that the in-form Donnacha O'Brien is in the saddle on the unraced San Andreas (2.45). In the other juvenile race on the card, Blenheim Palace, Norway and Eminence look to get their first win on the board for their illustrious trainer (3.20).

Elsewhere, Sedgefield and Southwell continue to keep the jumps season simmering, whilst Ayr hosts its penultimate Flat fixture of the season. The only evening action comes on the all-weather at Kempton, just as it did on Monday.

What to read

Man of the moment Donnacha O'Brien has been speaking about his targets for the rest of the season, Ten Sovereigns and how long he thinks he has until he stops riding.

Also, take a couple of minutes to read the profile of Prince Khalid Abdullah as Julian Muscat considers the impact he has made on the sport.

What to watch

The Monday Postcast is now available and includes an early preview of the upcoming Arc weekend at Longchamp.

It was announced over the weekend that Edredon Bleu had passed away, so the Postcast team looked back on their favourite King George VI Chase memories.

With Jose Mourinho under pressure, read a preview by Dan Childs for the Champions League tie between Manchester United and Valencia.

Neighbours and arch rivals Manchester City are also in European action at Hoffenheim, but Mark Langdon thinks the Citizens will bounce back after a shock loss to Lyon in their first group game.

Final thought 

All four of Aidan O'Brien's British and Irish Classic winners this season – Saxon Warrior, Forever Together, Kew Gardens and Flag Of Honour – ran at Naas at the back end of their two-year-old campaign. O'Brien evidently does not mind sending a good one to County Kildare, so watch the juvenile races today with interest.
