The Yeomanstown Stud Stakes at Naas and the €60,000 prize on offer certainly managed to catch the eye of some English trainers with four runners making the journey across the Irish Sea for the Listed race.

Despite the strong raiding contingent, it is the more locally-trained Lethal Promise (7.25, Naas), which is given the preference to put a poor recent effort behind and land the spoils here for Willie McCreery.

The concluding Family Fun Day August Bank Holiday Race looks a shoot-out between Bowerman and I Am Superman (9.0, Naas), but the latter is preferred.

Michael O'Callaghan has elected to come back in class with the three-year-old which made an impressive start to the season before being tried in the Guineas, but this looks to fit the bill more.

The form of Papa Bear (6.20, Naas) got a boost at the weekend, while recent Fairyhouse winner Katiymann (8.30, Naas) can go in again if repeating last Wednesday's form.
