It's a massive weekend for world racing and it's all in the Racing Post today and tomorrow.

D. Wayne Lukas breaks a 73-year record when saddling five runners in tomorrow's (Hong Kong time) Kentucky Derby and he finds it hard to choose between any of his runners in the Run For The Roses which he won last season with Thunder Gulch.

The first Classic of the British racing season is run at Newmarket today with Alhaarth bidding to reverse Craven Stakes form with the unbeaten Beauchamp King in the 2,000 Guineas.

Then tomorrow it is the turn of the fillies with the brilliant Bosra Sham at big odds-on to take the 1,000 Guineas.
