Latest from the tracks as Royal Ascot winner Arthur Kitt heads to Leicester

Leicester: stages a competitive eight-race card on Monday
1 of 1

There are five meetings in Britain and Ireland on Monday but it is not all about quantity, with Royal Ascot winner Arthur Kitt bidding to get his season back on track at Leicester. 

Last season's Chesham Stakes winner has been well beaten on two starts this year, but takes a significant drop in grade as he bids to kick-start his campaign in the 1m4f conditions race (3.30).

As well as Leicester, Stratford stages an afternoon meeting before Pontefract, Windsor and Roscommon take over in the evening. 

There is also Group-race action at Longchamp to look out for, with familiar names such as Success Days and Danceteria chasing a Group 3 prize over 1m2f (4.00).

Final thought 

There is decent action on home soil on Monday but the Group 3 Le Coupe at Longchamp (4.00) looks a belter. British-trained runners have won two of the last three renewals and hopes of a repeat rest with Spotify (trained by Charlie Appleby) and Danceteria (David Menuisier), while the popular Success Days (Ken Condon) represents Ireland.
