Latest updates from today's meetings with a Cheltenham ace at Southwell

Ballyalton (left) chases home Faugheen at a respectful distance in the 2014 Neptune Investment Managament Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival
1 of 1

A quiet day's racing with Salisbury and Thirsk on the Flat in the afternoon before Southwell and Roscommon provide jumps action in the evening.

Arguably the most interesting runner all day is at Southwell in the myracing.com For Royal Ascot Tips Handicap Hurdle (8.10). Ballyalton is owned by golfer Lee Westwood's father John and is back over hurdles for only the second time since finishing second to Faugheen in the Neptune at the Cheltenham Festival four years ago. In between he won over fences at the 2016 festival.

Lingfield completes the evening action on the Flat, with a mixed meeting featuring four races are on turf after three on the all-weather.

The best of Racing Post Sport

Countdown continues to the World Cup in Russia and there is a move in the top tournament scorer market. Steve Davies has an interesting 7-2 bet, which obliged four years ago.

Golf's world number one Dustin Johnson is all the rage for the US Open later this week.

Final thought 

No looking – but how many winners has Dan Skelton sent out this jumps season? A clue is he had 30 winners in May and this evening he has seven runners at Southwell.
