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

Day's end: Chelmsford under lights ends what is a busy Saturday in Britain today
1 of 1

Saturday symmetry. That is what we have today with racing having started hours ago with the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes at Randwick in Australia.

That was a race for fillies and mares and, six meetings and a mere 14 hours later, racing in Britain finishes with a similar if less classy race at racecourse Chelmsford under the floodlights.

It is doubtful whether the winner of that 8.50 handicap finale in Britain on the Polytrack will draw any headlines to rival wonder mare Winx in Australia just as the sun was rising over the Essex city of Chelmsford.

In between Sandown hosts an always informative Group 3 that is the BetBright Solario Stakes and Chester will play to its usual full house with a competitive Listed feature in the Corbettsports.com Chester Stakes. 

For racing insomniacs there is American fare to follow with Saratoga signing off in the 24th hour of Saturday British Summer Time with a couple of Grade 1s.

What's on today

Mark Scully has swapped Newmarket for Istanbul this weekend. He has two days at Turkey's Longines-sponsored international meeting and has already sent his preview of what to expect from Godolphin, George Baker and Archie Watson challengers.

What to back

Richard Birch has his Saturday banker but punters will have to wait until later in the day than some of the top tips from around the training centres and from clockwatcher Dave Edwards and Racing Post Ratings' Sam Turner.

Don't forget to check out the two selections on video (below) of Nick Watts, the Racing and Football Outlook expert, for the feature race on ITV at both Sandown and Beverley.

What to read

The weather has started to change and thoughts are turning to the winter sport that is classy jumps racing. Find out how one of Nicky Henderson's stars has summered and the game plan this winter with the latest of our Q&A features on the winter heroes.

Graham Dench sets the scene for a bustling Saturday up and down the country from Beverley and Chester to Sandown.


What to watch

Bruce Millington has Paul Kealy. David Jennings and Paddy Power to take you through Saturday’s racing. Watch the Sandown thoughts (above) and then Chester and Beverley nuggets are unearthed below.

The best of Racing Post Sport

More World Cup qualifiers and a truncated football league programme featuring division one and two provide our experts with food for thought.

Watch Bruce Millington, Simon Milton, Joe Champion and Adrian Croke provide the answers to who will win this weekend.

It is the all-Ireland hurling final between Galway and Waterford at Croke Park in Dublin. All the final thoughts for the best bets from David Jennings, Paddy Aherne and Anthony Cunningham.

 

Final thought

Nine is the magic number. That is for both Ryan Moore and Silvestre de Sousa who bridge Sandown and Chelmsford to each reach that number of rides today. Wonder which bookmaker will shout the odds on how many winners they will have between them and who will have the most? Wonder whether after their first half at Sandown whether they will be matching England's 0-0 scoreline in Malta.
