    Galway Festival 2018

    good to have my local meeting back again, this must be my 20th, the majority have been losing ones.

    just seen the morning update ground is soft/yielding, typical really that we've had all this dry weather and then the week before the rain comes and scuppers the chances of the summer horses. here are my bets for today e/w singles and an e/w Lucky15.

    5.55 Ineffeable e/w 40/1
    7.05 Shifted Stategy e/w 25/1
    7.40 Miles To Memphis e/w 12/1
    8.10 Bit Of Banter e/w 8/1

  2. 1 Thanks from:

    good old George from galway bay fm, his selections are usually to be avoided.

    I wish i'd backed David's Charm at 16/1 last week, was 12/1 start of this week and steadily being backed, I wouldn't be surprised to see it go off at around 4/1.

    it really is a race for horses at the top of the market, last 5 years the winners have had an SP of 5/1, 9/2, 9/2, 7/2, 7/1.
