Three runners to keep onside at Galway and Kempton this evening
Mondays are not many people's favourite night of the week. But if football or EastEnders are not your thing then you are in luck. Following on from the afternoon meetings at Hexham, Brighton and Worcester there is action at Galway and Kempton this evening and here are three to watch
Willie Mullins has won the only two runnings of the2m5½f Deacy Gilligan Irish EBF Mares Hurdle, the first of those coming via Airlie Beach, and he looks to have a very good chance of walking away with this year's edition as well given he is responsible for three of the six runners and they occupy the first three spots in the market.
Calie Du Mesnil currently disputes favouritism with Pleasure Dome, but the last named is officially rated 5lb higher giventhey meet off levels and also has the assistance of stable jockey Paul Townend.
Jeremy Noseda's Kamikaze Lord is heavily odds-on and on adjusted Racing Post Ratings he is well clear at the weights after a solid second at Ascot last time. He drops in class here, but may well bump into another classy type in the form of Richard Hannon's Naughty Rascal.
He carries a penalty, but has won, has experience on the all-weather and powered three and three-quarter lengths clear on his impressive debut at Lingfield.
William Haggas and James Doyle have formed an excellent association this year, with 40 winners from 140 runners together.
Klassique last time out helped contribute to that total and he could add to it further. He beat a really decent field at Windsor last time, with several of those in behind victorious since. There should be plenty more to come up in trip on her handicap debut.
