Galway regular Baraweez back for a fifth attempt at the BMW Mile

Baraweez will bid to make it fifth time lucky in Galway feature
1 of 1

7.40 Galway
Colm Quinn BMW Mile Handicap | 1m½f | 3yo+ | RTE2/ATR

Baraweez will bid to make it fifth time lucky in this valuable handicap when partnered with four-time winner Declan McDonogh.

The eight-year-old is twice a winner over 7f at the festival and finished third in this race in 2014, second in 2015 and fifth and sixth in the last two instalments. 

Ellison, a regular visitor to Galway in recent seasons, said: "This is his fifth year at the festival. The first year he ran off 91 and he's maintained his form for all that time. It was touch and go last season as to whether he would make it, but he ran well and is in better form this year, although he has a really bad draw in 16."

Successful on Riven Light last year, McDonogh first won the race with Eklim in 2003, which he followed up with victories on Vastonea in 2012 and Creggs Pipes four years later.

Baraweez's 17 rivals include former stablemate Dream Walker, now trained by Jarlath Fahey, who finished third in this race year last year.

Riven Light bidding to make history

Last year's winner Riven Light will be attempting a weight-carrying record as he bids to become only the second horse after Pinch Hitter to land back-to-back victories in the race.

Trained by Willie Mullins, Riven Light is the mount of the trainer's nephew, Danny, who was successful on Rock And Roll Kid for his father Tony in 2009.

Brendan Brackan, who won the race five years ago, will bid to become only the second dual winner of the event. His trainer Ger Lyons is also represented by three-time winner Inscribe.

Age factor

No three-year-old has been successful since Palace Star scored for the late Peter Casey in 2004 and representing the age group on Tuesday are Bond Street, attempting to give Aidan O'Brien a first win in the race, Theobald, whose trainer Jim Bolger has twice won the event, Band Of Outlaws, Rionach, on a hat-trick on her handicap debut, and Great Grey.


What they say

Willie Mullins, trainer of Riven Light
It's great to have him back after the injury he suffered in Australia last year. He's well and the easy ground will help him, but his big weight (10st 1lb) and being drawn out on the Dublin road (18 of 18) won't help his chances of repeating last year's win

Michael Halford, trainer of Saltonstall and Massif Central
Saltonstall found the ground a bit quick in the Hunt Cup last time and he'll appreciate the easier conditions, as will Massif Central who should be suited by the drop back in trip.

Keith Dalgleish, trainer of What's The Story
He's my first Galway runner. He ran very well at Ascot and again at York and this looked another good pot to have a go at. He's got a good draw, so fingers crossed.

Ado McGuinness, trainer of Aussie Valentine
He's in great form and the easy ground will help. His form is rock solid and we're expecting a big run.

Jarlath Fahey, trainer of Dream Walker
He's fit and well and has shown that he loves Galway. We're hoping for a big run on ground that should be perfect for him.

Aidan O'Brien, trainer of Bond Street
It will be his first time racing on a track like Galway but he has plenty of handicap experience and ran well in the Britannia at Ascot last time.

Michael O'Callaghan, trainer of Rionach
She's very progressive and has come on well well since her win at Killarney. Racing has taken nothing out of her and she has a nice weight (8st 5lb) for one we think could be a stakes filly. The only negative is the ground- she'd prefer it better. But I'm very hopeful she'll go close.

Denis Hogan, trainer of Turbine
He just scraped into the race. He was fourth in the same race last year off a 6lb higher mark and although 17 isn't a good draw the plan is to jump out and try and get a good position. He has a visor for the first time.
