Everything you need for the action on a busy bank holiday

Warwick: one of seven tracks racing today in Britain and Ireland
1 of 1

It's been a busy last week with the Punchestown festival and the Newmarket Classics and there is little let up on this bank holiday Monday with seven meetings in Britain and Ireland.

The Curragh hosts the best of the action, with Latrobe and Magical among a select four-runner field for the Mooresbridge Stakes (4.10).

Unlike the slightly longer gap in Britain, the break between jumps seasons in Ireland lasted all of one day, with Down Royal staging the first meeting of the new campaign.

Fixtures at Warwick, Kempton, Beverley, Windsor and Bath ensure there are plenty of options for racegoers.
