ATTENTION today [Saturday] will be rightly focussed on the Dublin Racing Festival where there are four Grade 1 clashes, including the Arkle Novice Chase at 2pm.

Willie Mullins has four of the seven runners in the Arkle and, less than half an hour later, he will be dashing to the on-course betting shop to watch his Laurina contest the Grade 1 Scilly Isles Novices’ Chase at Sandown.
