Verdict

EIGHT AND BOB can round off a spectacular week for trainer Willie Mullins at the 2020 Galway Festival. The seven-year-old ran well in defeat at this meeting on Tuesday, no match for Walking On Glass over 2m½f on the Flat but can improve on that effort as the Big Bad Bob gelding drops in trip to hold off the attentions of the top weight, Born By The Sea, second of 14 beaten a neck here on Friday, the Joseph O'Brien-trained, Dawn Over Owning and Swelltime, a winner over hurdles at Gowran Park last week. Hold up horse, Mandarin Monarch could go well at a price.
