Corinthia Knight was a good winner at Pontefract on Sunday being the second time he has won for the thread this season. He's a cracking horse who will probably be able to win again off his new mark he'll get.

Galway 7:50

Monday sees the start of the famous Galway Festival kicking off, where we have six days of racing from both the jumps and the flat. It's generally very difficult to get winners at Galway due to the track being difficult to make ground from the rear, and having a good stall is often vital.

The one horse which caught my eye on day one of the Festival is the JP McManus-owned COMMON PRACTICE. Joseph O'Brien's lightly raced 3yo gelding of Gleneagles won the Apprentice Derby a month ago when massively upped in trip to 12f, having been running over 7f. He ran on strongly that day and it didn't look likely that he was going to win until late on, and I think that Galway will suit his running style as it is a stamina-sapping track, and I think an 8lb rise in the weights can be defied. He was strongly fancied for that race at the Curragh last time around, so they must've been very confident of a big run, and felt that he was well handicapped, so if that's the case, then he should be okay off his new handicap mark today.

I said how stall numbers are pivotal to getting a good position and a good chance of winning at Galway, so stall 5 is a definite plus for the selection. Horses drawn in stall 5 or lower have won 7 of the last 10 renewals, with the other three years being won from stall 6, 12 and 13.

    Times Square 1-58 Tarbes 6-4 🇫🇷.
    Bet365 only firm with odds right now.

    Good listed race this for a course I’m not familiar with.
    Form figures of 32730 don’t look inspiring but this horse has improved especially at this distance this year
    Last time he was 13th in the French oaks over a distance too far for her.
    The time before she was 3rd in the French 1000 Guinness over this distance beaten just a head and short head by mangoustine and cachet.
    Cachet had previously won the Nell Gwyn and the English 1000 Guinness at Newmarket.

    Will have more free time tomorrow to go into a bit more detail but for now here goes

    5.10 Gaoth Chuil 11/2 ew 3 places.

    By Derby winner Harzand so will be interesting to see how he fares over the sticks. Is in good hands with Ted Walsh and won his last Bumper by 14L. Also gets a stone from the fav and probable winner

    5.40 Callthebarman 33/1 ew 5 places (very small stakes)

    Returns to hurdles and also drops in trip. Likes to be up with the pace and hasn’t been seeing the longer trips out.

    6.40 Powerful Aggie 14/1 ew 6 places
    Coltor 16/1 ew 6 places

    Not much between these 2 on revised terms from their previous meeting. Color obviously won it last year but JOB yard are flying.

    No real Interest but the booking of Colin Keane catches the eye on bottom weight Raleigh Bridge at 25/1. Its also his h’cap debut.

    I like Enthrallment 10/1 ew 4 places here for Weld who puts a 5lb claimer onboard and Weld always targets Galway.
