LIKE London buses the ITV action shows no sign of slowing. Sunday brings action from Newmarket, Windsor and the Curragh.
We head to Windsor for our Race of the Day with a solid looking Listed Midsummer Stakes (3.00). Callum Jamieson gets stuck in.

It's a real intriguing heat this, with plenty of old faces returning. It feels stronger than a Listed race on paper and even features a Group 1 Royal Ascot winner.
One of the more unexposed runners is Sir Michael Stoute's Davydenko, who drops back to a mile after a rusty return at Newmarket earlier in the month.
He looked a really smart and progressive handicapper last season and was always destined for stakes races. But the drop in trip is hardly a vote of confidence and he may be best watched here.
Pogo has really caught the eye with his last two efforts and is definitely worthy of a shot at a race such as this.
But connections are probably a bit irked with the horses they've bumped into here. That said, he's not without a chance whatsoever.
A proper gallop would aid his chances, but that's far from guaranteed.
The only likely pace is Mark Johnston's Cardsharp who may just get an easy time of things up top. If he gets his own way he's a big old price.
The main fancy is ACCIDENTAL AGENT. He's had well-publicised problems in recent seasons, but returned well in the Queen Anne after a gelding op.
It looked to have helped and he was one of only a couple of horses to make any headway whatsoever from the rear off a real steady gallop.
Anything like a return to his form of a couple of seasons ago when he won the Queen Anne should see him take this. And there was enough promise last time to suggest a near-return to that may not be impossible.
The concern is the track as most of his best form comes at Ascot. But he's not one-dimensional. A tactical affair would go against him, though.
Market leader Stormy Antarctic is due a win but does avoid a penalty for Group 3 and Group 2 victories abroad last season.
He needs to step up on his run in the Diomed Stakes but Saturday's rain will be welcome news to trainer Ed Walker who is in great form. However, he's short enough in my book.
The rain will also be good news for History Writer's chances, while Urban Icon has a sniff if he can repeat his Wolverhampton run two starts back.
