We continue with five sporting highlights for the week ahead.
Racing - William Hill Ayr Gold Cup
TV: ITV Racing/Racing TV
There was a surprise on Monday when Victory Day, set to start a warm favourite for William Haggas, didn't feature among the six-day entries.
In his absence Buffer Zone heads the market for Ger Lyons and he was a ready winner of a big handicap at the Curragh at the weekend. He's improving and deserves his place in the betting.
David O'Meara holds a strong hand though and Summerghand and Arecibo must be on any shortlist but Gulliver might just be the one to land this prize for the North Yorkshire trainer.
He's dropped to a handy mark and made very good late headway when third behind Buffer Zone at the weekend. He was short of room at a crucial stage but finished strongly and looks tailormade for this race.
Recommended bet: Gulliver
Football – Champions League
Where: Across Europe
TV: BT Sport
Europe’s elite club competition returns with the group stages getting underway this week.

Just because the PGA Tour have dished out their end-of-season prizes doesn’t mean the big golf events are over for the year as the European Tour’s Race To Dubai kicks back into gear with their flagship event taking place this week at Wentworth – the BMW PGA Championship.
