We managed to get another one on the Galway winning board with Salvador Ziggy last night. Today we send 4 horses to Ballybrit and hopefully we can have a bit more luck.
In the opener we have EBASARI who was an easy winner the last day and remarkably wasn’t penalised by the handicapper. This is a much more competitive task but he seems to be going in the right direction and Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride.
For the Galway Blazers handicap chase we have our final three runners of the day, ARAMAX, HARDLINE and COACH CARTER. Coach Carter was last seen winning in Perth where he ran two consecutive days and managed to be in the money both times. It looked like the step up in distance was appreciated and he has been stepped up again here with Davy Russell in the saddle. Aramax ran in this last year and was third and we switched him back to hurdles to give him a bit of confidence. He is back over fences here today and will have Jody McGarvey in the saddle. Finally we have Hardline who hasn’t quite been the power of old but has a dropping mark and the hands and heels of Jack Kennedy to guide him.
