Paul Ferguson starts the week with one selection on Monday; Earls Quarter in the 5.35 at Galway. Compare odds and bet.
A busy week with both Glorious Goodwood and the Galway Festival taking place and the Irish meeting kicks off this evening. In the hope that too much overnight rain hasn’t hit the track Earls Quarter (5:35) is worth backing in the 2m Carlton Hotel Galway City (Q.R.) Handicap.
Willie Mullins’ six-year-old impressively beat the smart Rebel Fitz in a novice hurdle at the track last August and shaped with a deal of promise on the all-weather at Dundalk recently.
He had earlier been beaten by Caim Hill on his debut on the Flat, but he is weighted to reverse form this evening, plus he will hopefully have the better ground in his favour as well as the longer trip.
A strong traveller, he is worth backing each-way (10/1 overnight with Bet365 and Bet Victor, though as low as 6’s with Boylesports) in a wide-open 20-runner contest.
