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

Aintree: one of several tracks racing today
1 of 1

With the final domestic Group 1 of the Flat season now done and dusted, Sunday signals times are changing as it is a jumps only fare, at least in Britain and Ireland.

Aintree will take the headlines with its meeting which features the Grade 2 Monet's Garden Old Roan Limited Handicap Chase (3.00), although the seventh leg of Veterans' Chase Series (1.50) is likely to prove popular with fans of jump racing too.

Wincanton is also in action with the biggest day of the season for the Wiltshire course less than two weeks away, while Wexford and Galway take the jumping reins in Ireland. Talented bumper performer Getaway Katie Mai, Cheltenham Festival victor Blow By Blow and Wicklow Brave are among those in action at Galway.

This time of the year has quite an international feel to it and today is no different, as Chantilly hosts a pair of Group 1s, the Prix Royal-Oak (2.45) and Criterium International (3.20). Much like Arc weekend, there are plenty of familiar names making the journey to France.

What to watch

Autumn always has a very international feel to it, with the Breeders' Cup and plenty of races in Australia under the spotlight. With that in mind, watch Godolphin rep Chris Connett provide an update on Cross Counter ahead of his entry in the Melbourne Cup.

The jumps season is in full focus now and jump jockey Danny Cook has provided an update on some of Sue Smith's horses and on his own ambitions for the season.


The best of Racing Post Sport

There is plenty of Premier League action today, including Manchester United's tie with Everton. James Milton has previewed the 4pm kick-off here.

Elsewhere, Arsenal are on a red-hot run of form and Mark Langdon fancies the Gunners to make it 12 wins on the bounce at Crystal Palace.

Final thought 

The Old Roan Chase may be the feature race at Aintree, but keep an eye on the maiden hurdle that opens the card. Three horses, including last year's winner On The Blind Side, ran in the race 12 months ago before going on to win Grade 2 contests later in the season.
