Going updates and market movers for today's racing

Goodwood: hosts a seven-race card this afternoon
1 of 1

There will be plenty of interest in The Queen's Calculation, the first foal out of Gold Cup winner Estimate, who is running in the British EBF Peter Willett Maiden Stakes (3.05) at Goodwood after an encouraging third behind Too Darn Hot at Sandown last time.

And at Stratford, Wells De Lune is on a five-timer in the feature handicap chase (3.55) following an impressive summer campaign for trainer Peter Bowen.

Elsewhere, there are Flat meetings at Naas, Leicester and Kempton going into the evening.
