Tuesday's feature comes from Galway where sixteen runners contest the Listed Oyster Stakes (5.15). Among the contenders is the sole British representative Alwaysandforever, who makes the trip over from Luca Cumani's Newmarket yard.

There is good action from Yarmouth where James Fanshawe is strongly represented with Excelled (2.20), who hopes to make it two from two after an encouraging debut success, before Bombyx heads a field of six runners in a competitive handicap (2.50).

Afternoon action also comes from Lingfield and Redcar, while Kempton stages an evening meeting.
