RACING TV WEEKLY - The first Classics of the season

It has been a fantastic Festival so far at Punchestown and we still have two days remaining! Legendary jockey Ruby Walsh has taken the headlines by winning the Gold Cup then retiring from a glittering career in the saddle. Read Ruby’s reaction below.

The weekend's action starts on Friday at midday with Mark Your Card before live racing from Musselburgh and Punchestown before we visit Cheltenham for the final time this season. Dundalk's evening card completes the day's line-up.

The Full SP previews the afternoon's racing on Saturday from noon before we head to Newmarket for the QIPCO 2,000 Guineas. Aidan O'Brien saddles Ten Sovereigns and Magna Grecia and is looking to become the first trainer to train three consecutive 2,000 Guineas winners since the 19th century. Away from Newmarket you can enjoy racing from Goodwood, Thirsk and the final day of the Punchestown Festival.

It's the turn of the Fillies on Sunday as we return to Newmarket for the 1,000 Guineas. Nell Gwyn Stakes winner Qabala is the current favourite after the impressive manner of her victory on the Rowley Mile last month. We also bring to seven races from Hamilton Park alongside Listed action from Gowran Park in the shape of the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Victor McCalmont Memorial Stakes.
