Midweek delight as Yarmouth's eastern festival tops Tuesday bill

Yarmouth: first day of three
1 of 1

Racing loves its festivals, so having completed the St Leger festival at Doncaster we roll on to the eastern festival at Yarmouth this week.

The three days of action on the Norfolk coast offer races for horses of varying ability, but the 1m3½f handicap (3.05) features some intriguing contenders, none more so than the unbeaten High End.

Away from the track, the Anseanachai Cliste cobalt disciplinary hearing takes place at BHA headquarters in London, and the countdown continues to Ayr's William Hill Ayr Gold Cup festival at the weekend.

What's on today

Plenty, especially considering it is a Tuesday.

As well as the racing and the Anseanachai Cliste hearing, Zarak and Brametot are due to work to see if they can earn a place in the Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe a week on Sunday.

Added to that, there is plenty of updates and news to look out for as we get closer to Ayr and Newbury at the weekend.

Final thought 

Whoever Ryan Moore decides to ride, the prospect of a battalion of Ballydoyle runners lining up to take on Enable in the Arc is an exciting one. Perhaps Cracksman may even get the nod to go too. . .
