The Punt Daily: Tom Collins with three to follow on Tuesday
Martyn Meade does extremely well with his two-year-olds and the form of Confiding's novice victory at Newbury is working out really well – potentially the best two-year-old race of the year so far with the second, third, fourth, fifth, seventh, eighth and ninth all scoring subsequently. He did it really well that day, too. Having been held up by Callum Shepherd, who retains the ride, he move into contention powerfully and won snugly at the line. The extra half a furlong will suit and he should progress further.
One of David O'Meara's stablestars, Suedois has been a consistent challenger in Group 1 and 2 company for the last couple of years with his highlight coming when winning the Shadwell Turf Mile at Keeneland last season. Earlier last campaign he went close to winning this race at 25-1 when not getting the clearest of runs before flying home for third, and he can go close once again. He's taken a couple of runs to get to full fitness this season but ran a cracker in the Summer Mile last time out and looks likely to be 100 per cent for this contest.
I like to follow Joseph O'Brien at the Galway festival and his Successor is the standout bet at the meeting on Tuesday. A winner on the Flat in 2016, Successor took a few runs to come to hand over hurdles but got off the mark when fitted with a first-time tongue-tie three starts ago and then didn't handle the soft ground on his next and final start of the season. He returned this year with an eyecatching effort at Limerick when giving plenty of weight to a subsequent winner and will be primed for this.
