Following a sensational weekend of racing Monday’s action is understandably much lower in quality – but at least there is plenty of it!

There are five meetings across Britain and Ireland, with Windsor, Pontefract and Kempton all staging marathon eight-race cards. 

The most valuable race of the day is an optional claiming handicap (7.45) at Kempton, in which many punters are likely to be putting their faith in Mubtasim, who represents William Haggas and James Doyle, the pair who went so close to winning the Arc with Sea Of Class.

Final thought 

Enable did well to win a second Arc on the back of an interrupted campaign but in getting so close from an unpromising position Sea Of Class showed she is also a top-class filly.
