We head back down to Galway with two runners on the penultimate day of the festival.
MOOLTAZEM makes his yard and hurdling debut in the O’Leary Insurances Maiden Hurdle. The new recruit has 19 runs on the flat under his belt, of which 3 were victorious. His most recent form is a slight concern after refusing to start on the last two occasions but we’re hoping the change in yards will have sweetened him up and he will take well to the national hunt game. Keith Donoghue takes the ride.
Our only other runner of the day is MITCHOUKA (pictured) in the Galway Shopping Centre Handicap Hurdle. He’s fresh after a summer break and hopefully the step up in trip to 2m6f will be of benefit to him. Kevin Brogan takes the ride and claims 7lb.
