GALWAY TIPS ON TUESDAY – BEST BETS OVER THE STICKS IN IRELAND
1:15 Galway – BetVictor Maiden Hurdle (5yo+) 2m3f
INGENIOUS STROKE was a point-to-point winner for Rose Connors prior to joining Henry de Bromhead and the Jet Away gelding could be worth chancing on his debut over hurdles.
He did the job well on that winning occasion, building on an earlier promising effort and the form of that success has been boosted with subsequent winners from the race.
He could improve switching to this top yard who will have prepared him well ahead of his Rules debut and there’d be little surprise in seeing him firmly in the mix at the business end.
2:55 Galway – BetVictor Chase (5yo+) 2m6½f
ILIKEDWAYURTHINKIN could prove a tough nut to crack in the day’s feature which looks competitive despite there being only four runners and Gavin Cromwell’s charge can land a second chase victory.
The Yeats gelding has the advantage of race-fitness and landed the spoils when last seen scoring at Ballinrobe last month with a defeat of Russian Diamond.
He’s gone well here in the past with two winds during the 2019 Galway Festival and having ran at the 2020 Cheltenham Festival he’s been lightly raced over fences since. There could be better to come from him then in this sphere and likely to build on that recent victory he could prove the answer here.
3:30 Galway – BetVictor Beginners Chase (4yo+) 2m2½f
GABYNAKO might be worth an interest now he tackles fences and the smart hurdler can make his presence felt over the larger obstacles.
Gavin Cromwell’s charge won at Naas last November before producing some creditable runs in Graded company behind Ashdale Bob and Bob Olinger respectively. Later runs can be forgiven and he ran well on his final start at the Punchestown Festival when fifth to Koshari which represents solid form.
The Tirwanako gelding gives up chase experience to these rivals but he has looked a chaser in the making and if taking to this discipline then he can go well and could strike at the first attempt over the larger obstacles.
4:05 Galway – Guinness Handicap Chase (4yo+) 2m2½f
BOLD EMPEROR isn’t always the most fluent of jumpers as back-to-back unseats earlier in the season attest, but he’s capable when it all comes together and the Galileo gelding won at Sligo last month when posting a one length defeat of Rebel Waltz.
Thomas Gibney’s charge followed up that success with a creditable fourth to Defan at Listowel latest where not for the first time he was held back by his jumping which remains a concern.
However if he can cut out the errors that has plagued him thus far over the larger obstacles and produce something like the effort he had shown to land his Sligo success then he could go well here and he can get involved if his jumping holds up.
