Key details and expert advice for an informative day

Jumping returns to Kempton on Sunday
1 of 1

After a sensational Qipco British Champions Day at Ascot on Saturday, Sunday's action has plenty to live up to and while it may struggle to hit the heights of Cracksman and co, there is no shortage of interesting runners and competitive races.

In the latest sign that the National Hunt season is kicking into gear, the jumpers return to Kempton (for how many more years will we be able to say that?), while they race on the Fibresand at Southwell and on the Flat over at Leopardstown.

With a Sha Tin card to get things going in the morning, there is plenty for punters to get stuck into.

What to read

There is no shortage of reflections on yesterday's races from Ascot, including a report on Cracksman's brilliant victory in the Champion Stakes and Frankie Dettori on finally winning the big race.

What to watch

If you are heading out to Leopardstown, it could pay to hear the thoughts of Thom Malone, Brendan Duke and Shane Foley on the card.

With the jumps season hotting up, we spoke to Warren Greatrex about some of the stars of his stable.

Liverpool travel to Wembley to take on Tottenham in the day's big Premier League clash, with Arsenal also taking on out-of-form Everton. The Football Postcast team discuss both matches.

Final thought 

Despite the challenging weather, Ascot delivered another memorable British Champions Day and Cracksman's performance, just like his dad five years earlier, lit up the day. Roll on spring 2018!
