What to back

Maddy Playle suggests her best bet of the day at Musselburgh this evening.

 

What to read

There has been some movement in the transfer market when it comes to racecourse picture rights, with one big-name track still up for grabs.

Jessica Harrington also has a million reasons to be hopeful after yesterday's Sagaro Stakes.


What to watch

Think Chester, think Tom Dascombe. The in-form trainer was in bullish mood about his team for next week's May meeting.

 

The best of Racing Post Sport

After Liverpool's heroics last night, it is the turn of Arsenal to book a place in a European final. The Gunners travel to Atletico Madrid for the second leg of an evenly-poised Europa League semi-final and Dan Childs serves up expert advice for the big match.


Final thought 

Declarations for the Qipco 2,000 Guineas will come through later this morning. From where on earth did that sneak up on us?
