Yarmouth: A nine-race card is in store on Monday
1 of 1

Newmarket's Future Champions Festival provided some top-class action, and on Saturday it is the turn of Ascot and the Champions Day spectacular, which features four Group 1s.

The Flat season is coming to a climax, and to start the week there is a trio of fixtures on the level, with cards at Musselburgh, Windsor and Yarmouth.

A Listed race is the highlight of Yarmouth's nine-race marathon, while there is a pair of races with £20,000 prize funds at Musselburgh.

What to read

Following the tragic incident at Kempton on Saturday evening there was further sadness with the death of highly respected trainer Pat Haslam.

Sir Anthony McCoy was among those to pay tribute, while on the racing front Ribchester will be heading abroad after his QEII test at Ascot on Saturday.

What to watch

George Scott is dreaming of Breeders' Cup glory with James Garfield, we caught up with him as the juvenile worked at Chelmsford.

The Premier League action on Monday features Leicester at home to West Brom, and Mark Langdon offers his expert view on the game.

Final thought

In America ten or 12-race cards are considered normal, but today's nine-race extravaganza at Yarmouth is unusual for British racing. A one-off, or a sign of things to come?
