5 Runners today at Galway
POLI ROI (pictured) had a pleasing start to his career when winning his bumper on his racecourse debut then going on to finish 3rd in a Grade 1 bumper at Punchestown. He has his first run over hurdles today and has been schooling well at home so we expect a good run from him.
Although Arbre De Vie looks the one to beat, MALA BEACH has some decent form to his name. He’s having his first run back since his summer break and is in good form at home.
MIDNIGHT ESCAPE and MINELLA TILL DAWN both make their chasing debuts in the GalwayRaces.com Beginners Steeplechase. Midnight Escape won his point to point debut well back in May 2016 and has shown promising form on the track. He has schooled well at home and should handle the ground conditions. Minella Till Dawn also has some creditable form to his name. He has schooled plenty at home since his fall back in April and we would be expecting a good run from him today.
STOOSHIE was unlucky at Downpatrick last time out to finish 2nd behind Roseriver Has. He is in good form at home and we hope he can go one better than last time.
