NAP OF THE DAY: Limini, (1940 Galway), 2pts win, 7/4 generally available
Extraordinary to see high class hurdling mare Limini making a comeback from 16 months of injury in this prestigious flat race on Galway’s opening night. For all that stablemate Chelkar ran a blinder at Royal Ascot, he would have some task giving 11lbs to a peak form Limini, and the booking of trainer’s son Paddy for the mare suggests she is ready to rock.
Mecca’s Spirit, (1400 Ayr), 11/4: absolutely bolted up here last week in blinkers and should be able to defy a 6lb penalty on that showing. Had been looking exposed, so we have to believe in the blinkers to justify the follow up. They’ll probably still do the trick.
Ange D’or Javilex, (1755 Galway), 8/1: has seen the track on only one occasion in three years. Now settled with Master Trainer Gordon Eilot, he finally gets a chance to see if he can build on his promising early career runs
Tashman, (1905 Galway), 9/2: for all that training sensations Mullins and O’Brown have increasingly targeted Galway, veteran trainer Dermot Weld continues to be the king of Ballybrit. He can be sure to have targeted is very best winning chances at this week, and in Tashman he has a potentially massive improver at 3yo who has been kept off the track, probably deliberately, until this meeting to exploit a favourable rating.
