Going news and market movers as the Galway festival begins

The betting ring at last year's Galway festival
1 of 1

There is plenty of racing for both Flat and jumps fans in Britain and Ireland today as the opening day of the Galway festival kicks off with Cheltenham Festival winner Limini returning to action in the Connacht Hotel Handicap (7.40). 

Willie Mullins' runner, who has not been seen since finishing third behind Apple's Jade in last year's Mares' Hurdle at Cheltenham, is likely to prove popular with punters having won three races on the Flat before joining Ireland's champion trainer. 

In Britain, the declarations for the second day of Glorious Goodwood will be revealed. Royal Ascot winners Without Parole and Expert Eye head the market for the feature Sussex Stakes and it should prove a fascinating clash between the Classic and older generations.

Meanwhile, Newton Abbot, Ayr and Lingfield provide the afternoon entertainment, while Wolverhampton and Windsor take the helm for the evening.
