Galway 31st July

N’golo (Paul) has his first run for us in the 2 mile maiden hurdle. He won and was placed on the flat in France and has schooled well at home. This trip and the ground should be fine and he should go close.

Ego Des Mottes (Simon Torrens) goes for the 2 mile Opportunity Handicap Hurdle. This is his first run in a handicap and he will have the benefit of his rider’s 4lb claim. The ground will be okay for him.

Fan De Blues (Paul) runs in the 2 mile handicap hurdle. He won his maiden hurdle at Thurles last November and was then seventh in the Ladbroke Handicap Hurdle at Leopardstown in February. He will go on the ground and should give a very good account of himself in this competitive race.

We run seven in the 2m 6f handicap hurdle. Stratum (Robbie Power) will like the trip but has to shoulder top weight and wouldn’t want any more rain. Canardier (Paul) was running very well when he fell at last in the Coral Cup at Cheltenham. This trip will be fine for him and we think he will run a big race. Sayo (Patrick) is a course winner and just failed to get up in the Apprentice Derby at the Curragh last time. This trip and ground will be fine for him. Foveros (Mikey Fogarty) loves this track and needs this trip. However, he needs to improve on his disappointing run at the Curragh last time. My Sister Sarah (Rachael Blackmore) jumps well and was staying on well at the finish of the amateur maiden here on Monday. Great White Shark (David) loves this track and ran a cracker in the amateur handicap here last Monday. Diamond Hill (Danny) is a triple winner at this track and has a nice light weight. We are hopeful of a really good run.

We have three runners in the 2m 6f conditions chase. All three ran in the Plate here on Wednesday where Livelovelaugh (David) jumped well and will be suited if the ground dries out. Blazer (Mark Walsh) likes this track and will go on the ground. Robin De Foret (Paul) ran okay on Wednesday but doesn’t like coming up the hill.
