Give your Sunday betting a head start with key info on today's meetings

Brighton: hosts only one of two British meetings on Sunday
1 of 1

A relatively low-key Saturday is followed by an equally low-key Sunday as only two fixtures take place in Britain.

It's starting to feel like winter again with evening racing finished, fewer meetings being staged and the feature contest being a handicap hurdle.

Thistlecrack and the like will be out again soon, which will be great news for all you jumps racing purists!

Going report

Brighton - first race at 2.00pm
Good to firm, good in places (GoingStick: 8.5 on Sunday at 7:15am)

Worcester - first race at 2.15pm
Good, good to firm in places (GoingStick: 7.0 on Sunday at 6.15pm)

Market movers

2.00 Brighton - Mother Of Dragons 5-2 (from 11-4)

3.45 Worcester - Solstalla 11-2 (from 13-2)

4.15 Worcester - Wynford 15-8 (from 11-4)

4.30 Brighton - Her Terms 9-4 (from 5-2)

What's on today

From eight meetings in Britain and Ireland on Saturday to just two on Sunday as Brighton and Worcester hold seven-race cards.

There is, however, racing abroad as well with Chantilly, Baden-Baden and Veliefendi hosting Group action, and a number of British challengers will pit their wits against the locals.

What to back

If you have ten seconds to spare Jack McCarron will tell you his best bet at Brighton.

Tom Segal has a couple of selections at Brighton that could formulate a double, while our expert team of tipsters decipher Sunday's meetings.

What to read

Aidan O'Brien maintains the faith with Caravaggio and has set him a target at Irish Champions weekend. If you fancy buying a farm in Keeneland from Pirates Of The Caribbean star Johnny Depp, it would be wise to give this a read. While Charlie Austin, part owner of Another Batt who runs at Veliefendi this afternoon, explains his horse's chance.

What to watch

It's the All Ireland Hurling Final today and David Jennings leads a team of three in the GAA Postcast.

There are nine World Cup qualifiers this evening and you can find out who our expert football podcast team choose to pick up a valuable three points.

Final thought

Saeed Bin Suroor trained two Group winners at Veliefendi on Saturday in the shape of Leshlaa and Arabian Hope, the latter ridden by Gerald Mosse.

The duo combine with Secret Number in the Group 2 Bosphorus Cup and despite not being seen on a track in 295 days, he looks to have a great chance. 

Carry On Deryck and Dream Castle go for the Newmarket trainer in the Topkapi Trophy, the former being my selection.
