Going Listed as Good for Galway Festival



You simply know it's nearly impossible to find a builder anywhere in the Galway area as they're all on-course this week taking in some of the best racing you'll find anywhere. The Galway Festival attracts punters from all walks of life and every corner of Ireland over its seven day entirety.

There are a number of big races set to unfold this year with festival organizers hoping they can best last year's total of 150,000.

The first day is already behind us and the City Handicap provided another interesting iteration.

The Topaz Mile European Breeders Fund Handicap looks to be the headliner for Tuesday's card as a seven race day is set to unfold. The 2m6f Latin Quarter Chase will also attract plenty of betting interst.

Galway is famous for a healthy mix of jumps racing and some high-priced flat action as well. While it might be competing with Goodwood and the Sussex Stakes on Wednesday, punters can expect lots of excitement as it pushes on into next week.

Galway Racecourse manager John Moloney was quoted as saying “preparations have gone well and the ground is beautiful this morning and I'm sure it will be good ground this evening.” Only a small amount of rain has fallen in the past 24 hours and good ground should be available for the bulk of teh day's fixtures.

Punters should possibly gear their handicapping towards a softer or more yielding type of turf as we get closer and closer to the weekend unless things dry out significantly. The Guinness Galway Handicap Hurdle will attract some attention on Thursday and Friday's card will be highlighted by the Guinness Handicap – which unfolds over a tough 1m4f distance.
