Everything you need to know on a day for old stars and new

Sennockian Star: has dropped to a handy mark and can take advantage

It's a busy day on the Flat in Britain with five meetings, and the feature of the day comes from Musselburgh where the Listed EBF Musselburgh Fillies' Sprint Stakes is due off at 5.10.  

Mabs Cross is chasing a four-timer on her sixth start. While she is just beginning her career, Sennockian Star, one of the toughest horses in training, has his 24th start of the year at Kempton this evening in the 7.40.

Final thought 

Spare a thought for Sandra Hughes, who quit training back in April – not due to any lack of success but because her enterprise was no longer sustainable with the numbers she had in training. She must have been cursing under her breath as Willie Mullins sent out Total Recall to win the Munster National, complete with a first prize of €59,000, on his first start for his new yard.
