I have to admit, there is no greater feeling than when you study a race card and it pays off. A 10-1 winner in Clonmel, an unlucky 3rd for the Nap, who may have won only for the horse getting to the front too soon on an incredibly long run in, and a 2nd for the next best, just failing to get to a horse it had finished ahead of in Galway.
It is time to strike while the iron is hot. Like Clonmel, Galway has often been a brilliant hunting ground for me in the past. This is what I am really liking for tomorrows racing. All these prices are correct at time of writing.
The Nap of the day comes in the form of Crazywork De Vassy, currently trading at a price of 13-8 in the 7.10.
This horse is a very likable front-runner. For those of you who have been following my page you will all know how crazy I am about this horse. He let me down at a tipped price of 33-1, when falling two from home in Kilbeggan, before bolting up by twenty lengths in Killarney.
He receives a ten pound penalty for that day, which is a slight inconvenience but the horse still looks ten pounds “well in”. Darragh O’Keeffe will surely set the pace on this horse and with a sound display of jumping, it should make Crazywork De Vassy hard to beat.
The next best of the day lies in the form of The Storyteller currently trading at a price of 4-7 in the 5.10.
I absolutely hate tipping up a horse odds-on. The risk is always much greater than the reward, but honestly this should really be almost impossible to stop here.
Galway and The Storyteller go together like ice-cream and a wafer cone, with Keith Donoghue being the chocolate flake on top. After pulling up in the Galway Plate on a miserably bad day, he cruised up for victory two days later in much better conditions. He is now facing a weaker field that he has done in the past and I expect to see nothing less than another spectacular performance again.
The each-way selection of the day is going to go to Bridge Native in the 4.40 currently trading at 6-1 in the 4.40.
This one is another exciting one for the Dot Love team. Bridge Native is in the form of its life. The latest win in Downpatrick was impressive as well as its third in Tramore. The winner of that race has since gone on to win again. It is generally a sound jumper and should put in a bold effort.
Obviously it is an incredibly tough race to call. There are numerous horses in here that cases can all be made for. Bridge Native is at a nice price for each-way. It looks like it could be a very safe bet to place.
That’s all for me. Tomorrow I will be covering a mix of both Galway and Punchestown for both National Hunt and Flat lovers. If you want to visit my YouTube channel I will leave a link below.
