Anapurna winning at Longchamp

Live racing returns from France on Monday after the shutdown of the sport over the past few weeks. Three meetings take place at Longchamp, Toulouse and Compiegne and here we guide you through what you need to know to enjoy the action in full.

How to watch French racing

You can watch this on channel 415 on Sky, 535 on Virgin Media, and 418 on Virgin Ireland.

It is an early start with the programme beginning at 9.45am in time for the first race at Longchamp at 9.55am (the Prix de Saint-Georges).

A range of bookmakers will also be live streaming the action, so we also recommend checking with your bookmaker when you place your bet.
