We have a quiet week numerically in Galway this week.

8:00        BALEFIRE             RONAN WHELAN

Our first runner of the week is Balefire in the Bet With Tote At The Galway Races Handicap.  He has been very consistent horse for us this year and goes there tonight on the back of a comfortable win at Leopardstown.  The ground and trip look ideal for him and he has a good draw in 4.  We are looking forward to a big run from him

We have only the 1 runner tomorrow also, when the ultra consistent Surrounding runs in the Arthur Guinness Irish EBF Corrib Stakes over 7 furlongs.

3:45        SURROUNDING                                RONAN WHELAN

Surrounding looks to be improving with every run this year and her last win in the Group 3 Irish Stallion Farms EBF Brownstown Stakes in Fairyhouse would set the standard for tomorrow’s race.  Despite her 5lbs penalty, she still comes out well in the ratings and given the great season she is having, she would look like the one to beat tomorrow.  Conditions should be ideal.

We have one entry on Friday, but we will need a bit of luck to get a run and we have two entries in the Ahonoora Handicap on Sunday – we will make a decision nearer the time.
