Verdict

A terrific renewal of the Galway Plate and with bookmakers going 8-1 the field, that gives an indication of how wide open it is. Shaneshill should find this sort of test ideal and for one that has a bit of quality about him, looks nicely weighted here. Balko Des Flos is another that will improve this season but he's well enough found in the market, and the value may lie with HAYMOUNT, who will stay every yard of this and after a break may be the time to catch him. As a Mullins "second string" he looks a bit overpriced. Deans Road could go well at a price too and his chance shouldn't be dismissed.
  1. Haymount
  2. Shaneshill
  3. Deans Road
