Common Practice ran a nice race at Galway but was collared on the line, and if I'm honest the right horse won as Jessie Harrington's horse had to go wide around the bend and they would've been unlucky not to win. Still frustrating to come away without the win, but with just one selection on the day, it's not a disaster.

Goodwood 2:25

Glorious Goodwood is back and we have some quality racing in store, my first selection runs in the Group 2 7f race for 2yo's and the one which caught my eye at decent odds is the Charles Hills trained GALERON.

This horse has raced twice in his career to date, both runs have come at this venue which bolds well for today as he has the most experience at this track, which is quite unique, and is clearly a track he handles well. On debut, he broke from the stalls the slowest and was immediately on the backfoot but ran on nicely without the clearest of runs to grab fifth. The form of that race looks strong in relation to the rest in this field with the winner, Royal Scotsman, finishing third in what appeared to be a hot Coventry Stakes.

On his next run, Galeron won with a fair bit in hand against a Richard Hannon horse who looks a very nice type and runs later on in the week over 5f. Galeron looked in trouble that day and was tapped for speed, but when he hit top gear he motored past Trillium who was travelling noticeably better. That horse has since won by 4L in a Newbury maiden which was also won by Fly Miss Helen back in 2020 who was gambled off the boards for the Hannon stable, and looked like a very nice horse until she sadly went wrong in her next race. But it goes to show that's a race he has targetted in the past with a nice-looking horse.

Holloway Bay is the rightful favourite of this race based on his winning debut run at Royal Ascot in the Chesham, but the form hasn't exactly worked out so his short odds have to be challenged with another horse in this. I tipped up Pearling Path who was second behind Holloway Bay and he ran a poor race in a Group 3, recording an RPR of 81. The fourth horse Finn's Bay ran on the weekend just passed and also ran a shocker, finishing last and recording an RPR of 75, which makes me think he won a very ordinary 2yo race at Royal Ascot.

Goodwood 3:35

If the ground was remotely soft or had soft in the description I think TRUESHAN runs in this and batters them, but chances are that he'll be withdrawn yet again as the ground will be too quick for him. This is perfectly fine from my point of view as Alan King is protecting the horse and he's not going to risk him on ground which doesn't suit. However, where normally we'd see a withdrawal, Alan King seems fairly confident that he'll run Trueshan in this today as the clerk of the course has said they doubt it will go to good to firm, and Alan King has been quoted to have said that he is happy to try him on good ground. Based on that, I think he is worth a bet in this race as I think he will still be good enough to win this without his favoured ground, and worst case scenario we'll get our bet refunded if they deem the ground too quick, as they will remove him from the race.

I tipped Kyprios to win the Ascot Gold Cup where he beat Strad and Princess Zoe, and at the time I thought Strad was unlucky not to win, but looking back he did have enough time to regather himself and put in a challenge, but I think Stradivarius is better over shorter and always has been as he does have that turn of foot, and I think Kyprios is a stronger stayer and I think he would've lost with a clear run. However, with this drop back in trip on what is deemed to be a speed track, I think Stradivarius has the beating of Kyprios. Atzeni takes the ride today, who has won on him a few times before. Is it harsh on Frankie to lose the ride? I'd probably say so, and it's a shame as they did have a superb partnership.

Coltrane is the horse who will attract market support as he is deemed to be the progressive horse who has come from handicaps and then won a Listed race last time by 10L. Though he has obvious claims, I don't think you can compare the form of his last race where it's nowhere near the same level of opposition today.

    Pile of dog shite yesterday but Galway races even though quite a lot of races are low grade are all hugely competitive with more plots than Line of Duty and with over 2.5m in prize money you can kinda understand, it so stakes are always small unless i really fancy one or ive had a bit of word, although thats dried up lately.
    The Galway Hurdle is the richest h’cap hurdle in the world worth 162k to the winner so I think it deserves a bit more credit than it gets from punters as that’s usually pocket talk anyway.

    Onto today and the first 3 favs will be popular and can see many putting them in trebles but moreoften than not one will get turned over so I’ll avoid them.

    The only bet I’ve had so far
    Patrick Sarsfield 14/1 ew 6 places 6.40

    Ado Mcguinness has won this race for the past 3 years and runs 8 in it today so probably has something up his sleeve again, but on all known form I think PS has a huge chance.
    He’s a group horse running in a h’cap. Hasn’t been great in 2 runs this season but his rating reflects that dropping 4lbs. Drawn 14 will need to break well but the last 5 winners all came from a double digit draw.

    Changed my tactics as it is hard to pick a couple let alone a few winners so using Paddy Power to place market and so far after a trial and picking a few the first couple have placed.

    Back a few at evens and if they place were happy 😊
