Galway 25th July

We will have six runners in the QR Handicap over 2 miles. Whiskey Sour (Aubrey McMahon) won this race five years ago and showed his current wellbeing when winning a hurdle race at Cork earlier this month. Everything is right for him here and Aubrey has been very lucky in this race winning it twice and finishing second last year. Lot Of Joy (Barry O’Neill) is a new filly to the yard who won the Swedish St Leger last year. The trip won’t be a problem and she will like the ground. However, we don’t know how she will handle this unique track and on ratings she might find this a difficult task. Maze Runner (Elliot Ohgren) likes this track and comes here off a fine win over this trip at the Curragh. He is a course winner and with the 5lb claim he might give Elliot his first winner in this country. Patrick has elected to ride Echoes In Rain and he gives her a great chance. She has a lovely weight and her run at the Curragh last time will have prepared her nicely for this. Foveros (Derek O’Connor) was second in this race last year and if he gets the same luck in running he could be in the shakeup again. Farout (Jody Townend) is a course winner and finished fifth over 1m 4f at Leopardstown last time. This trip will suit him better and he has the benefit of Jody’s useful 5lb claim. Youmdor is first reserve and has a good chance if he gets a run. The trip at Ballinrobe last week was too short for him and hopefully this race won’t be coming too soon after that effort.

Your Eyes Only (Colin Keane) goes for the 1m 4f handicap. She won her maiden over 1m 2f at Sligo last month and the extra two furlongs here will be a big help. Colin rode her in Sligo and it’s great that he is available to take the ride again today. She has every chance.

We run three in the 4YO bumper. Patrick rides Bukhill who has been pleasing us home. If he can bring his homework to the track he won’t be far away at the business end. Rocco Ray (Charlie Mullins) was a bit disappointing on his debut at Punchestown but put in a much better effort when staying on well to finish a close fourth at Ballinrobe last time. He will have learned a lot from that run and Charlie’s 7lb claim could be a big help here. The Twelve Pins (Jody Townend) is bred to win around this track as most of her siblings have won here. Jody’s claim and her fillies allowance will come in handy and we are hoping for a good run.
