All the going updates and market movers for today's action

Epsom: a seven-race card at the course on Tuesday
1 of 1

There is a little respite for punters this afternoon following Monday's marathon with just the two meetings at Epsom and Ripon, although there is plenty of interest.

A classy three-runner field contest the mile conditions stakes at Ripon, while Ashpan Sam and Highland Acclaim are among the familiar sprinters lining up in the feature handicap at Epsom.

Chelmsford, Ballinrobe and Stratford provide the evening entertainment, while at 8pm, Pricewise's ante-post selections for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe will be available on the site.

The best of Racing Post Sport

The second round of the EFL Cup, known to most as the League Cup, takes place this evening and here are Dan Childs' best bets.

AFC Wimbledon take on West Ham in the televised clash.

Final thought 

Peppay Le Pugh (7.40) is an interesting debutant for Dan Skelton in the concluding 2m1f handicap chase at Stratford. The seven-year-old is a 20-race maiden but finished second on his last five starts for David Dennis and Skelton does so well with new recruits.
