Key info and top advice for a day with an international flavour

Fairyhouse: the Group 3 Brownstown Stakes is the main attraction
1 of 1

Racing has been competing with the attractions of the World Cup but it gets the day all to itself with four meetings on the domestic beat.

The best of the action comes abroad though, as the Group 1 Qatar Prix Jean Prat at Deauville takes centre stage with the IDEE 149th Deutsches Derby at Hamburg is the day's other top-flight contest.

Aidan O'Brien saddles Gustav Klimt in the Jean Prat, with James Tate represented by Hey Gaman, and closer to home O'Brien will be aiming to register a first victory in the Group 3 Irish Stallion Farms EBF Brownstown Stakes at Fairyhouse.

Ayr joins Fairyhouse in staging a Flat meeting, while there are jumps cards at Market Rasen and Limerick, where the Galway Plate Trial Handicap Chase has top billing.
