No lazy Sunday in the racing world as the action comes thick and fast

Horses cross the infamous taxis fence in the Velka Parubicka
1 of 1

What sort of Sunday do you have lined up? A big breakfast to accompany RP Sunday before lazing around, perhaps? 

Well, that could not be any more different to the 20 participants in the unique Velka Pardubicka in the Czech Republic. They will tackle huge fences and testing terrain as they seek victory in the country's most iconic race. Last year's winner Charme Look is back to defend his title.

Closer to home, jump racing dominates in terms of quantity but Navan hosts the Irish Cesarewitch and three Listed contests on the Flat.
