Three selections for Day Two of the Galway Festival

By Luke

Day two gets underway with the Colm Quinn BMW Novice Hurdle over two miles. Road To Dubai runs for Gordon Elliot with Keith Donoghue in the saddle. Since moving from George Scott’s yard, he has done well over hurdles for Gordon. He was last seen finishing second at Down Royal behind Goose Man beaten a neck. Back in third on that day was Grade 2 winner Rashaan. Prior to that he won well at Ballinrobe, winning by four lengths and it was twenty eight lengths back to the third.  I think he is going the right way and will go close at 10/3.

Race three is the Colm Quinn BMW Irish EBF Fillies Maiden over seven furlongs. Too  Soon To Panic comes into this race after a very nice debut. This daughter of Gleneagles ran well to finish third at Leopardstown behind Cayenne Pepper. The first, second and fourth have all came out and won since. I think with the natural progression for the run she will go close at 9/4.

Race five is the Colm Quinn BMW Mile Handicap. Numerian was unlucky in running when last seen at Royal Ascot. He ran into traffic twice and ran on very well to finish fifth. That was his first run on turf after only racing at Dundalk prior to the run. He is drawn well in stall four and I think with more luck in running he will go close at 4/1.
