What you need to know to start your day including going from all the tracks

Musselburgh stages the main British meeting on the day
1 of 1

It is all eyes on Ireland today, and not just because of their cumbersome handling of a certain disciplinary issue.

There is the Group 3 Fairy Bridge Stakes and Listed Abergwaun Stakes at Tipperary in the evening, while Bellewstown also hosts jumps action at the same time.

In Britain, Musselburgh's eight-race card provides plenty for punters to get their teeth into, including a feature 7f fillies' handicap with Peach Melba, who is on a four-timer for Mark Johnston.

The best of Racing Post Sport

There are World Cup qualifiers coming up and Thursday offers the first of them, including a cracker between Holland and France.

There is also the Czech Masters, for which we have picked out a series of bets.

Finally, Bruce Millington reflects on a wonderful test match between England and the West Indies.

Final thought 

Whatever your views on the Davy Russell situation, there can be little doubt that the Turf Club will now come out of it looking worse than they need have done. A four-day turnaround from decision to u-turn would beat that of even the most discordant political party.
